Barbra Streisand – Some Good Things Never Last lyrics

It's three in the morning
You're nowhere in sight
And all that I wanted was
To be with you tonight
I've watched love get closer
And then fade away
I've seen you believe in me
I've seen you trying to stay
Gut what good is holding on
When you know that all
You can think about is letting go
They say if you love someone
Then set them free
If they come back again
Then in the end it was meant to be
I thought we were lovers
I thought we were friends
I guess when reality steps in
The dreaming ends
We live for the future
We learn from the past
No matter how hard we try
Some good things never last
All you can think about is letting go
Be true to yourself, my love
That's all I ever wanted you to be
Just don't forget to smile
When you think of me
I' ii reach for the stars
I have got them in sight
There's someone who really needs me
Out there in the night
We'll live for the future
We'll learn from the past
No matter how hard we try
Some good things never last
Why can't they last?
