Lyrics: Starlight Express - Next Time You Fall In Love



Next Time You Fall In Love
Pearl and Rusty
Starlight Express


Pearl
I'm guess I'm not too good at keeping love alive for long
I think I've found the answers but the answers always wrong
My first love was my true love and it should have been my last
The only time I'm happy when I'm dreaming in the past

Pearl
Next time you fall in love it better be with me
The way it used to be
Back then, was when we touched the Starlight

Pearl
Sometimes you turn away from what your heart tells you is right
And so you settle for whatever gets you through the night
The flame you thought was dead may suddenly begin too burn
And broken hearts can be repaired that's something that you learn

Pearl
Next time you fall in love it better be with me
The way it used to be
Back then, was when we touched the Starlight

Rusty
I've relived every moment that I've ever shared with you.
What fools we were to end a dream that looked like coming true.

Rusty
Next time you fall in love it better be with me
The way it used to be

Pearl
Back then

Rusty
was when

Pearl
we touched the Starlight

Rusty and Pearl
Next time you fall in love it better be with me
The way it used to be
Back then, was when we touched the Starlight

Rusty and Pearl
I guess I'm not too good at keeping love alive for long.
I think I've found the answers but the answers always wrong.
My first love was my true love and it should have been my last.
The only time I'm happy when I'm dreaming in the past.

Rusty and Pearl
Next time you fall in love it better be with me
The way it used to be
Back then, was when we touched the Starlight
