FREAKWAY - "Ain't Gonna Last Forever"

from by Halcyon Tone

about

Once you've been around the block a few times, you learn that the thrill of young love is little more than naive lust and desire. Minneapolis funk/soul brothers Freakway seem to know this well, as their classic 'Ain't Gonna Last Forever' suggests. Though laced with a sense of pragmatic melancholy, this track doesn't fail to get feet on the dance floor with its infectious groove and soulful melodies. Halcyon Tone is proud to bring this under appreciated boogie gem back into the spotlight.

lyrics

Girl you might / have been told
Like every child / when you get old
To hold on tight / when you find love
For all your life / don't let it go oh no
Don't let it go / doncha let it go

Listen now / to what I say
I'm an honest guy / and it's okay
We're two adults / in the real world
And fairy tails / are for little girls
And we both know

That it ain't gonna last forever
No it ain't gonna last forever
Let's enjoy our time together
'Cause it ain't gonna last forever

It ain't gonna last forever
No it ain't gonna last forever
Tonight we are together
We can remember this forever

Love can get / so complicated
And you're the most / I've ever dated
Knew it when / you left town
There's no turnin' / our love around
from here

There's no sense / assignin' blame
And playin' these / jealous games
You can't keep down / what you can't hold
I know that now / gotta let it go
and you've got to let me go

And though I loved the two of us / to me you'll always look the same
I let your love slip by me once / and it ain't comin' back again
Oh no / I know

It ain't gonna last forever
No it ain't gonna last forever
Let's enjoy our time together
'Cause it ain't gonna last forever

It ain't gonna last forever
No it ain't gonna last forever
Tonight we are together
We can remember this forever
