I did my best
'Cause here we are back where we were before

Wondering if we oughta stay

Why we never last for very long
Just once can't we find a way to finally make it right
Make the magic last for more than just one night
I know we could break through it
I gave my all
'Cause Lord knows we're not getting anywhere

We haven't got a prayer
Why the good times never last for very long
Seems we're always blowing

Make the magic last for more than just one night
I know we could break through it
Just once I want to understand
Why can't we get ourselves in hand

Take the best and make it better

Make the magic last for more than just one night
If we could just get to it
Just once
