Now the sun is shifting through your life
The hands of time are twisting to your days
A captured moment in your kiss, like winter snow, it's gone, melted away

There's a chapel on the edge of town
Baby take my hand before they tear it down
'Cause now we find nothing's what it seems
Let me hold you close through these drivin' dreams

'Cause the world is turning much too fast
And time won't wait, gotta make love last
'Cause the fields are burning, and there's no returning
Till the future finds the past, we gotta make love last, make love last

Like a rose exploding in the sun, a precious time to live before it's gone
Tears fall on the ocean from different skies
Inside your kiss I wake and find the dawn

In temporary ways we give, but eternally, our hearts will live
For now we find nothing's what it seems
You better run with me through these drivin' dreams

'Cause the highway's fading much too fast
And time won't wait, we gotta make love last
'Cause the fields are burning, and the season's turning
Till the future finds the past, this time, we gotta make love last

'Cause the world is turning much too fast
And time won't wait, we gotta make love last
'Cause the fields are burning, and the season's turning
Till the future finds the past, this time, we're gonna make love last
We gotta make love last

'Cause the highway's fading, and the world is turning much too fast
We gotta make love last, make love last
