  • Someday we're gonna look back
    On a night like tonight
    The car I pulled up in
    The necklace you're wearing
    Won't even cross our minds
    Someday we're gonna blink twice
    Say it happens like that
    How much money we saved up
    For the time that we gave up
    Well, it'll all just be math

    I know I'm only human
    Don't know how many sunsets I got left
    And I don't wanna ruin
    This moment by wondering what comes next

    I just want to love you
    Like it's all I'm living for
    Hold you close, enjoy you more
    And spend a little less time keeping score

    If we're rich to somebody
    We're poor to somebody else
    We could be happy and nameless
    Or broken and famous
    But, from what I can tell

    Is that it doesn't really matter
    You can't take with you when you go
    Life is only getting faster (life is only getting faster)
    So, baby, I'd rather
    Take tonight nice and slow

    'Cause I know I'm only human
    Don't know how many sunsets I got left
    And I don't wanna ruin
    This moment by wondering what comes next

    I just want to love you
    Like it's all I'm living for
    Hold you close, enjoy you more
    And spend a little less time keeping score

    Be with me now
    Be with me right now
    Be with me right here, right now
    Be with me now
    Be with me right now
    Be with me right here, right now

    I know I'm only human
    Don't know how many sunsets I got left
    And I don't wanna ruin
    This moment by wondering what comes next

    I just want to love you
    Like it's all I'm living for
    Hold you close, enjoy you more
    And spend a little less time keeping score
    Oh, yeah
