A beautiful track off of the Roots To Branches album. This is my first Tull video in quite some time, also this a request for tobytyke4.

Lyrics - So why are you holding my hand tonight?
I'm not intending to go far away.
I'm just slipping through to the back room -
I'll leave you messages almost every day.

And who was I to last forever?
I didn't promise to stay the pace.
Not in this lifetime, babe
but we'll cling together:
some kind of heaven written in your face.

So why are you holding my hand tonight?
Well, am I feeling so cold to the touch?
Do my eyes seem to focus
on some distant point?
Why do I find it hard to talk too much?
And who was I to last forever?
I didn't promise to stay the pace.
Not in this lifetime, babe
but we'll cling together:
some kind of heaven written in your face.

So why are you holding my hand tonight?
I'm not intending to go far away.
I'm just slipping through to the back room
I'll leave you messages almost every day.
And who was I to last forever?
I didn't promise to stay the pace.
Not in this lifetime, babe
but we'll cling together:
some kind of heaven written in your face.

This delicate song is about dying before ones domestic partner, a last goodbye. Our narrator assures his love that the approaching death cannot make an end to the bond between them: "Not in this lifetime, babe, but we'll cling together: some kind of heaven written in your face" and that he will stay close to her: "I'm not intending to go far away. I'm just slipping through to the back room, I'll leave you messages almost every day".
