lyrics

can you feel me falling, sweetheart?
feet don’t touch the ground
was that “one last kiss” the start?
was that “I love you” the sound

of a long road back
on our way back home
of us growing up
growing old

and still in love
still on fire
though it comes and goes
ebb and flow

can you hear me calling your name?
we still know the words to this endless song
is this “one more chance” a game
or do we finally see where we belong?

in each other’s arms
each other’s soul
love is a choice
we can be whole

and still in love
still on fire
though it comes and goes
ebb and flow

one last hope is all I ask
one more 42nd chance at love
that was the question
and I’m counting on
your hidden tenderness
to see us through

through this long road back
on our way back home
see us growing up
growing old

and still in love
still on fire
though it comes and goes
comes and goes

ebb and flow
ebb and flow
ebb and flow
