Getting On

Getting On

Janis Ian

All good things must end
No use to pretend
Though the tears may fall, we will remember
What a race we ran,
walking hand in hand
Every memory is framed in splendor

Holding on
Somehow, we go on
Keep each other strong,
though we're getting on
No matter when we part
we're standing heart to heart
Every end's a start, and then it's gone
Getting on

Look at what we are
Just a shooting star
Now you see us, now you don't
Then you won't
But the light still shines
bending space and time
‘Round and ‘round the sky it goes
and no one knows

We're holding on
Somehow we go on
Keep each other strong
though we're getting on
No matter when we part,
we are standing heart to heart
Every end's a start, and then it's gone
Getting on
Getting on
