  • Your hit initial fire and ice
    You're water and whiskey burn
    We kiss, we fight, make up all night
    You're the blessing and the curse

    But I don't ever wanna break this chain
    I don't ever wanna walk away
    'Cause I ain't ever gonna find another lover
    Make me feel this way

    Over and over and over we say that we're through
    But I come right back to you

    There's a long stretch of love
    Coming down the line
    Have you like I want, ever rolling
    Baby, you'll be mine
    Have you right here, beside you
    When these good times get tough
    Baby, we're in for a long stretch of love

    You lift me up, you bring me down
    You make me feel alive
    You send my heart in overdrive
    Every time you kill the lights

    Over and over and over we play this game
    Win or lose, we never change

    There's a long stretch of love
    Coming down the line
    Have you like I want, ever rolling
    Baby, you'll be mine
    Have you right here, beside you
    When these good times get tough
    Baby, we're in for a long stretch of love

    (Oh) Long stretch of love
    (Oh) Long stretch of love
    (Oh) Long stretch of love

    Over and over and over we play this game
    Win or lose, we never change

    There's a long stretch of love
    Coming down the line
    Have you like I want, ever rolling
    Baby, you'll be mine
    Have you right here, beside you
    When these good times get tough
    Baby, we're in for a long stretch of love

    (Oh) Long stretch of love
    (Oh) Long stretch of love
    (Oh) Long stretch of love (Ooh baby)
    But I don't ever wanna break this chain
    I don't ever wanna walk away
