It takes a lifetime to learn how to love
It starts with a flicker that bursts into flame
Then it fades to an ember with fights
And with fingers pointing out blame

Oh to exercise the act
Of falling in love with you over and over and over

Let's close off all our escape routes
Let's not put it off tonight
Let's close off all our escape routes
We can have it all tonight

It takes a lifetime to learn how to love
Most the time I'm taking too much in my turn
But I yearn for your closeness and a gentle return

Oh to exercise the act
Of falling in love with you over and over and over
Over and over and over
Over and over and over

My arms snake around yours
Your lips open explore
These promises we have saved
They hold us
They hold and maintain

Let's close off all our escape routes
Let's not put it off tonight
Let's close off all our escape routes
We can have it all tonight

Let's close off all our escape routes
Let's not put it off tonight
Let's close off all our escape routes
We can have it all tonight
We can have it all
We can have it all tonight
