Tony Bennett — How Do You Keep The Music Playing? lyrics

How do you keep the music playing?
How do you make it last?
How do you keep a 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
Why should 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 you feel for her, it's now or never
The more I love, the more that I'm afraid
That in her eyes, I may not see forever, forever

If you can be the best of lovers
Yet be the best of friends
If we can try with everyday to make it better
As it grows, with any luck, then I suppose
The music never ends

I know the way I feel for her, it's now or never
(How do you keep the music playing?)
(How do you make it last?)
The more I love, the more that I'm afraid
That in her eyes, I may not see forever, forever

If you can be the best of lovers
Yet be the best of friends
If we can try with everyday to make it better
As it grows, with any luck, then I suppose
The music never, never, never ends
