How do you keep the music playing?
How do you make it last?
How do you keep the song from fading too fast?
How do you lose yourself to someone?
And never lose your ways
How do you not run out of new things to say?
And since 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 many not see forever, forever

If we can be the best of lovers
Yet be the best of friends
If we can try with everyday to make it bertter as it grows
With any luck, then I suppose, the music never ends

I know the way I feel for you it's now or never!
(How do you keep the music playing?)
The more I love, the more that I'm afraid
(How do you make it last)
That in your eyes I many not see forever, forever
(How do you keep the song from fading, keep the song from
fading too fast)
If we can be the best of lovers
Yet be the best of friends
If we can try with everyday to make it better as it grows
With any luck, then I suppose the music never ends.
