  • Sooner or later, this happens to everyone
    To everyone

    You can live your life lonely
    Heavy as stone
    Live your life learning
    And working alone
    Say this is all you want
    But I don't believe that it's true
    'Cause when you least expect it
    Waiting 'round the corner for you

    Love comes quickly, whatever you do
    You can't stop falling (ooh, ooh)
    Love comes quickly, whatever you do
    You can't stop falling

    You can live a life of luxury
    If that's what you want
    Taste forbidden pleasures
    Whatever you want
    You can fly away to the end of the world
    But where does it get you to?
    'Cause just when you least expect it
    Just what you least expect

    Love comes quickly, whatever you do
    You can't stop falling (ooh, ooh)
    Love comes quickly, whatever you do
    You can't stop falling (ooh, ooh, ooh)

    I know it sounds ridiculous, but speaking from experience
    It may seem romantic, and that's no defense
    Love will always get to you
    Sooner or later, sooner or later
    This happens to everyone
    To everyone

    You can fly away to the end of the world
    But where does it get you?

    Love comes quickly, whatever you do
    You can't stop falling (ooh, ooh)
    Love comes quickly, whatever you do
    You can't stop falling (ooh, ooh)
    Love comes quickly, whatever you do
    You can't stop falling (ooh, ooh)
    (Ooh, ooh)
    (Ooh, ooh)

    Love comes quickly, whatever you do
    You can't stop falling (ooh, ooh)
    Love comes quickly, whatever you do
    You can't stop falling (ooh, ooh) Writer/s: Christopher Sean Lowe, Neil Francis Tennant, Stephen Eric Hague

  • Eugene from Minneapolis, MnThis is one of the best and underrated Pet Shop Boys songs ever.I loved this record from day one which was back in 1986, when this was just an LP cut.
