Don’t tell me how i had a vison
That this day would come to be
Call it luck, call it intuition
Here I am (here we are), isn’t that enough
For a little bit of reality
Fate is good, fate can be real
If you believe it’s what you feel

Oh, what a moment
When i looked into you eyes
I knew i got the prize
Oh, baby, what a sweet surprise

It only took a minute, to let you in my life
It only took a minute, for me to realize
It only took a minute, and i knew just what to do
It only to a minute to fall in love with you

Time and time again, boy I’ve always been
The only one who think things through
You got a hold on me, set me free
Who would’ve known that out of the blue

I discovered the magic of all my dreams that night
With just one look at you
I knew that everything would be all right

It only took a minute, to let you in my life
It only took a minute, for me to realize
It only took a minute, and i knew just what to do
It only to a minute to fall in love with you

Here I am, isn’t that a vision
Here I am, isn’t that a vision

Oh, what a moment
When i looked into you eyes
I knew i got the prize
Oh, baby, what a sweet surprise

It only took a minute, to let you in my life
It only took a minute, for me to realize
It only took a minute, and i knew just what to do
It only to a minute to fall in love with you

[Chorus (first time without background vocals):]

This used to be my playground (used to be)
This used to be my childhood dream
This used to be the place I ran to
Whenever I was in need
Of a friend
Why did it have to end
And why do they always say

Don’t look back
Keep your head held high
Don’t ask them why
Because life is short
And before you know
You’re feeling old
And your heart is breaking
Don’t hold on to the past
Well that’s too much to ask

[Long and movie versions only:]

[chorus]
Live and learn
Well the years they flew
And we never knew
We were foolish then
We would never tire
And that little fire
Is still alive in me
It will never go away
Can’t say goodbye to yesterday (can’t say goodbye)

[chorus]

No regrets
But I wish that you
Were here with me
Well then there’s hope yet
I can see your face
In our secret place
You’re not just a memory
Say goodbye to yesterday (the dream)
Those are words I’ll never say (I’ll never say)

This used to be my playground (used to be)
This used to be our pride and joy
This used to be the place we ran to
That no one in the world could dare destroy

[Short and movie versions only:]

This used to be our playground (used to be)
This used to be our childhood dream
This used to be the place we ran to
I wish you were standing here with me

[Movie version only:]

This used to be our playground (used to be)
This used to be our great escape
This used to be the place we ran to
This used to be our secret hiding place

This used to be our playground (used to be)
This used to be our childhood dream
This used to be the place we ran to
The best things in life are always free
Wishing you were here with me

I cannot seem to reach you
Although you're so close now
I'm moving 'round in circles
Come to me

I cannot seem to leave you
I'll reach out to you now
You're moving way to fast, love
Stay with me

Now I know it is time to move on
And I know that I should forget you now
But I can't change, no
The way I feel about you

I cannot understand this
The change in your emotions
And why you cannot love me
The way I am

Now I know it is time to move on
And I know that I should forget you now
But I can't change, no
The way I feel about you

I cannot find the right words
Why don't you understand them
How much I really want you
To change your mind

Now I know it is time to move on
And I know that I should forget you now
But I can't change, no
The way I feel about you
