Did I lose your love a long time ago
Or did I just wear it out? Baby, I don't know
Seems like anymore we're not on the same page
In the same book, or on the same stage

We say the words, but they feel all wrong
Like a happy blues, like a sad love song
How two people can bow and scrape
For every shred of tenderness

Can love stand the test
Of times that surround us
Memories that astound us
Joy and happiness
Can love stand the test?

A long time ago, or was it just yesterday
Why would we fall out of love? Baby, can you say?
Don't look at me like I'm stranger now
Have I changed that much? Baby, tell me how
How two people could bow and scrape
For every shred of tenderness

Can love stand the test
Of times that surround us
Memories that astound us
Joy and happiness
Can love stand the test?

We said forever, for always, for good
But the years were not impressed

Can love stand the test
Of time that surrounds us
Moments that astound us?
Can love stand the test
Of time that surrounds us
Moments that astound us?
Joy and happiness
Joy and happiness
Joy and happiness
