How do you keep the music playing, 
how do you make it last
How do keep the song from fading too fast
How do you lose yourself to someone, 
and never lose your way

How do you not run out of new things to say
And since we know we're always changing, 
how can it be the same
And tell me how year after year
You're sure your heart will fall apart, 
each time you hear his name

I know the way I feel for you
It's now or never
The more I love the more that I'm afraid
That in your eyes I may not see forever, forever

If we can be the best of lovers, yet be the best of friends
If we can try with every day, to make it better as it grows
With any luck than I suppose, the music never ends
