Music Monday - How Do You Keep The Music Playing?

It's Monday and it's Music Monday time once again. One of my favorite songs is "How Do You Keep The Music Playing?" by James Ingram and Patti Austin. This is a beautiful and meaningful song especially for the couples out there.

We also have a home video performance of this song where I sang only at the first part but I don't want to embed it here, only because I was there during the first part. But if you want to view how I messed up the song, you can view it here. :-)

How Do You Keep The Music Playing? Lyrics

How do you keep the music playing?
How do you make it last?
How do you keep the song from fading
too fast?

How do you lose yourself to someone
and never lose your way?
How do you not run out of new things
to say?

And since you know we're always changing
How can it be the same?

And tell me how year after year
You're sure your heart won't fall apart
Each time you hear his name?

I know the way I feel for you is now or never
The more I love, the more that I'm afraid
That in your eyes I may not see forever, forever

If we can be the best of lovers
Yet be the best of friends
If we can try with every day to make it better as it grows
With any luck then I suppose
The music never ends

I know (how do you keep the music playing)
the way I feel for you is now or never (how do you make it last)
The more I love the more that I'm afraid
(how do you keep the song from fading)
That in your eyes I may not see forever
(Keep the song from fading)
Forever

If we can be the best of lovers
yet be the best of friends
If we can try with every day to make it better as it goes
With any luck then I suppose
The music never ends

Yes, it's a beautiful and romantic love song that resonates the feelings of being in love and how to keep it burning. Love must not only be based on mere feelings and emotions but on the higher quality of trust, confidence and faithfulness to each other so that it can stand the test of time. Thanks for the romantic post. God bless you all always.

I agree with Mel---it's a nice romantic song! I've never heard it before. I like the melody too; it's very calming and soothing, somewhat like a lover's lullaby. ;)
