Page 1: Every now and then we fall apart. And we need you now tonight. And we need you more than ever. And if you only hold us tight, we’ll be holding on forever. And we’ll only be making it right, ‘cause we’ll never be wrong. Together we can take it to the end of the line. Your love is like a shadow on us all the time. We don’t know what to do, we’re always in the dark. We’re living in a powder keg and giving off sparks. We really need you tonight. Forever’s gonna start tonight. Forever’s gonna start tonight. Keep hustlin’, Brooklyn.
