Let's Stay Together . . . or not.

I . . . I'm so in love with you.

I'm pretty sure that is what I am
 supposed to say in these circumstances.

Whatever you want to do
Is all right with me.

But when I say stop, please stop.

'Cause you make me feel so brand new,

Well, maybe not brand new,
but pretty damned good, I admit.
And I want to spend my life with you.

Until I don't anymore.

Since, baby, since we've been together,
Loving you forever . . . 

Make that six more months or so.
It already seems like I've known you forever.

Is what I need.

At this moment? You betcha!

Let me be the one you come running to.

If you can't find me, leave a message
in my voice mail. I'll call you back

I'll never be untrue.

I said that with a straight face!

Let's, let's stay together,
Lovin' you whether, whether
Times are good or bad, happy or sad.
Whether times are good or bad, happy or sad.

Still, if the cash stops rolling in, I don't expect
to be seeing much more of you anyway.

Why, why some people break up
Then turn around and make up . . .  
I just can't see.

I really can't.
Why not just move on?

You'd never do that to me, would you, baby?

Heh. As hot as you are, there is no way that you're 
not going to sleep around, too. So I think I can be forgiven 
for not getting too heavily invested in this thing.

Staying around you is all I see.

Realisitically, however, I'm going to need 
significant time for myself now and again.

Here's what I want us to do.
[Repeat to fade]
Let's, we oughta stay together.
Loving you whether, whether
Times are good or bad, happy or sad.

Yeah, repeat to fade. But damn,
I still love that song!
Don't you?
