Dan Fogelberg — Next Time lyrics

One too many days
I've felt forgotten
And one too many nights
I've slept alone.
And every time I watch
the fruit turn rotten
I tell myself I'll
try a little harder
Next time.
Sacred are the ties
That love entrusts us
Even if they fray
Before they bind
And I'm afraid I never
Did you justice
So I'm going to feel my
Love a little stronger
Make it last a little
longer
Next time.
Chorus
Next time
I ain't gonna fall on my
knees
And come out of love
emptyhanded.
But next time I'll be
even harder to please
When will the next time
be?
Repeat Chorus
One too many days
I've felt forgotten
And one too many nights
I've slept alone.
And every time I watch
the fruit turn rotten
I tell myself I'll
try a little harder
Play my cards a little
smarter
Next time.
wo-hoh-NEXT TIME
