HOW DO YOU KEEP THE MUSIC PLAYING?
Music by Johnny Mandel
Lyrics by Alan and Marilyn Bergman
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?
And since we know wečre always changing,
How can it be the same?
And tell me how, year after year,
Youčre sure your heart will fall apart
Each time you hear her name?
I know the way I feel for you itčs now or never.
The more I love, the more that Ičm afraid
That in your eyes I may not see forever
If we can be the best of lovers,
Yet be the best of friends.
If we can try with evčry day
To make it better as it grows;
With any luck, then I suppose,
The music never ends!
