The Love Won’t Go Away

They say Be careful what you wish for,
The opportunity will come knockin’ on your door,
And you won’t have no excuses no more,
And the love won’t go away.

You can take the short way, you can take the long,
You can play the music, or you can sing the song,
You soon find out that there’s no right or wrong,
And the love won’t go away.

Somethin’ makes you happy and you know just what to do,
‘Cause you’re livin’ in the world and it’s livin’ in you,
Takin’ the risks becomes nothin’ new,
And the love won’t go away.

You take a chance you say Come what may,
You open the door to what you really want to say,
The thrill of it all starts to keep you awake,
And the love, the love, the love, the love,
The love won’t go away.

I look to the right and I look to the left,
When I look at you I proceed straight ahead,
Lately every mornin’ we laughin’ in the bed,
And the love won’t go away.

They say Be careful what you wish for,
The opportunity will come knockin’ on your door,
And you won’t have no excuses no more,
And The Love Won’t Go Away.
