Charted: 1
  • Love like a road that never ends
    How it leads me back again
    To heartache
    I'll never understand
    Darling I put my heart up on a shelf
    'Till the moment was right and I told myself
    Next time I fall in love
    I'll know better what to do
    Next time I fall in love
    Oh oh oh oh oh oh
    The next time I fall in love
    The next time I fall in love
    It will be with you

    Now as I look into your eyes
    Well I wonder if it's wise
    To hold you
    Like I've wanted to before
    Tonight oh I was thinking that you might
    Be the one who breathes life in this heart of mine

    Next time I fall in love
    I'll know better what to do
    Next time I fall in love
    Oh oh oh
    The next time I fall in love
    The next time I fall in love
    (It will be with you)

    Next time I'm gonna follow through
    And if it drives me crazy
    I will know better why
    The next time I try

    Next time I fall in love
    I'll know better what to do
    Next time I fall in love
    Oh oh oh
    The next time I fall in love
    The next time I fall in love
    The next time I fall in love
    the next time I fall in love Writer/s: B. CALDWELL, P. GORDON

  • Golden_lasso from Plattsburgh,nyHey Esskayess! Your potshot about "sinning" is belittling.
  • Esskayess from Dallas, TxCetera's and Grant's vocal pairing was certainly one of the more interesting ones ever. How often do you hear the man singing in a higher octave than the woman? The video that VH1 ran repeatedly was beyond lame, but the sound is beautifully rendered. Of course, turn the clock forward a decade or so and one can place Vince Gill in the role of the unknown person that Grant is sinnng--I mean singing-- to.
  • Jimmy T from Nyc, OrDoes anybody know if Cetera is as arrogant as he appears? I've followed his career since '72, I love his songs and style, but I hear he's hard to work with.
  • Sara from Silver Spring, MdBobby Caldwell is not a one hit wonder. He is popular in Japan because he is hailed as one of the "AOR (Adult Oriented Rock"- the Japanese version of soft rock or westcoast rock greates)
    He is more of a Sinatra- Michael Bolton like singer. Anyway Peter Cetera and Amy Grant are two great artists.
