and Music by Dennis Livingston
Something unexpected has come into my life.
An emotion that I find fits like a glove.
Though it's rather decadent, not without some precedent,
I must admit that it involves my love
TIME I LOOK AT YOU,
I FALL IN LOVE AGAIN,
like the first night we went walking
on the banks along the Seine.
know that sounds exactly like
a greeting card cliche,
but its simply how I feel day by day.
Of course, it hasnt all been perfect through the years,
weve had our share of petty arguments and angry tears.
But in the end, you help me understand
that love does not endure all by itself,
we have to work to make a marriage turn out right.
There must be more than sentiment
and flaring passion, quickly spent,
to fan the flame of ever-growing warm delight.
Ive got to give my full attention,
listen to your needs.
I know you take your coffee black,
you know I bought spring seeds.
You share the burdens that I bear
which no one else can hear,
I do my best to further your career.
Of course, for true romance, theres nothing that can beat
just having Paris at our feet, but when we come back home...
and married life begins again,
I find that courtship never ends.
We do the boring little chores
that knit our lives in subtle ways.
We must not take our love for granted,
for love is quickly disenchanted,
and there are times that bring a choice to leave or stay.
These are lessons that Ive learned
to take into my heart,
always trying to remember well that
loving is an art.
long as I have all my strength to live
Ill say with surprise now and then:
EVERYTIME I LOOK AT YOU,
I FALL IN LOVE AGAIN.
Note: The song can be done either as a solo or as a duet, with
lines traded back and forth as suggested above.
