​It Only Takes A Moment

This song is by Barbra Streisand and appears on the album Hello, Dolly! (1969).

Original video
Cornelius:
Children
It was more fun to be children
We just took life as it happened
Run through the days
Don't look behind
Over wink of an eye and it's over
What a surprise to discover
We were people ourselves
What kind of people did we want to be
No answer ever came to me

I didn't sleep at all last night
Mom, I've come to you like yesterday
About today, but I'm afraid
Hon, come and sit by my side
Listen to me
Words come so hard
But what my hear says
I will give you

Mrs. Molloy:
It only took a moment
Your eyes begin to open
As is you had awoken from a sleep
It only took a moment
You use imagination
And lose you concentration
When someone drops his name
You're back in his arms as always
Your daydreams work out that way
It's all just a trick you mind plays
The more love grows
The more it stays the same

Prisoners:
Same little girl who's frightened

Mrs. Molloy:
But he love him so

Prisoners:
Same little girl who's sure

Cornelius:
That she loves her so

Prisoners:
Sees with a woman's vision knows what a woman knows

Mrs. Molloy:
It only takes a moment
We've reach for our tomorrow's
And know we won't be lonely
In laugher and in sorrows
And that is all that love's about
And we'll recall when time runs out
That it only took a moment
To be loved a whole life long

Prisoners:
And know we won't be lonely
In laugher and in sorrows

Cornelius:
And that is all that love's about

Mrs. Molloy:
And we'll recall when time runs out

Both:
That it only took a moment
To be loved a whole life long!
