Lyrics 

(Lyric Find)

Everyday, it’s a gettin’ closer,

Goin’ faster than a roller coaster,

Love like yours will surely come my way, (hey, hey, hey)

Everyday, it’s a gettin’ faster,

Everyone says go ahead and ask her,

Love like yours will surely come my way, (hey, hey, hey)

Everyday seems a little longer,

Every way, love’s a little stronger,

Come what may, do you ever long for

True love from me?

Everyday, it’s a gettin’ closer,

Goin’ faster than a roller coaster,

Love like yours will surely come my way, (hey, hey, hey)

Everyday seems a little longer,

Every way, love’s a little stronger,

Come what may, do you ever long for

True love from me?

Everyday, it’s a gettin’ closer,

Goin’ faster than a roller coaster,

Love like yours will surely come my way, (hey, hey, hey)

Love like yours will surely come my way
