(Verse 1)
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 way
How do you not run out of new things to say...

(Verse 2)
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

(Chorus)
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...

(Verse 3)
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, then I suppose, the music never ends

(Chorus)
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


(Verse 3/Repeat)
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, then I suppose the music never ends

How do you keep it playing, baby...
Oh...
I wanna know, how do you do it...
How... do you keep the music playing... over and over...
