Barbra Streisand - "Some Good Things" lyrics

Never last
M. Radice

It's three in the morning
To be with you
And all that I wanted was
You're nowhere in sight
Tonight
And then fade away
I've seen you trying to stay
I've watched love get closer
I've seen you believe in me
But what good is holding on
When you know
That all you can think about
They say if you love someone
Is letting go
Then set them free
If they come back again
Then in the end
It was meant to be
I thought we were lovers
I thought we were friends
Steps in
I guess when reality
The dreaming ends
We live for the future
We learn from the past
No matter how hard we try
Some good things never last
All you can think about
Is letting go
Be true to yourself my love
Just don't forget to smile
That's all I ever wanted you to be
When you think of me
I'll reach for the stars
I have got them in sight
Out there in the night
There's someone who really needs me
We'll learn form the past
We'll live for the future
No matter how hard we try
Some good things never last
Why can't they last
