HOW DO YOU KEEP THE MUSIC PLAYING?
Music by Michel Legrand
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 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 her name?
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 -
If we can be the best of lovers,
Yet be the best of friends.
If we can try with ev'ry day
To make it better as it grows;
With any luck, then I suppose,
The music never ends!
