lyrics

I wish that I could hear this song forever
but I only listen now and then
it’s only sweet as long as it’s playing
and then the needle skips and it’s the end

The grooves on my record are worn down
but every bump and scratch is heaven-sent
it’s funny how we lived so many moments
in the minutes of a song that came and went

Oh I wish that I could hear this song forever
but I know it’s no use to pretend
it’s only sweet as long as it’s playing
and then the needle skips and it’s the end

And now the song is over and I’m sorry
but the old refrain will always stay
inside my mind entwined with all the memories
of the love we knew and threw away

I wish that I could hear this song forever
but like they say you can’t go home again
it’s only sweet as long as it’s playing
and then the needle skips and it’s the end
