Dreaming only lasts until you wake up
And you find you're not asleep
Silence only sticks around
'Til someone in the room decides to speak

And luck runs out and hearts go cold
We're only young until we're old
And summer leaves us wondering where it went
The friends you have can disappear
The whole world can change within a year
And money only lasts until it's spent

But you, you, you last a lifetime (you last a lifetime)
You last a lifetime

Truth will change and time will fly
The party lasts until the wine's gone
This time next week the radio
Will change it's mind and play a different song

We stay in touch 'til we forget
And beauty fades, the kiss will end
And fame will love and leave you just as fast
You'll have it all until it's gone
The books gets burnt, the statues fall
Sometimes feels like nothing will ever last

But you, you, you last a lifetime
You last a lifetime

Hey, love, can we dance together
Since I found you feels like time don't matter
Hey, love, I feel much better
You show me forever

You, you, you last a lifetime
You last a lifetime
