F-ing short the loving lasts
I cant mix the future with the past
Can I stay close to you
I wanna stay close to you

Youve got yours and Ive got mine
And what we have in so hard to define
Just take a look at your life line
Youve got a lot to shine
Lets say baby,
I wanna know you for a long long time
Ooh baby
I wanna know you for a long long time

Oh darling, lady friend
Well see each other when its time to show
Just for a minute or for a year
But then again, dont you and I know

A time between our time together
It doesnt exist, it grows old forever
Just take a look at your life line
Ob baby, youve got a lot to shine
I know it baby,
I wanna know you for a long long time
Ob and baby,

I wanna know you for a long long time
I wanna know baby, I wanna know baby
Oh youve got a lot to live girl
So I wanna know you for a long long time
I wanna know, I wanna know,
I wanna know baby
So much to live for girl,
So much to live for girl
So I wanna know you baby
Wanna know you for a long long time.
I wanna know, wanna know ...

(etc. and fade)
