Next Time Around

She doesn’t wanna be in love
As a part time thing
She only wants the moon and the stars
More than just a brass ring

She’s a little bit careful I guess
Doesn’t wanna rush into that “big mistake”
She knows what’s easy, and she knows what’s best
Yeah, the clock is ticking, but it’s worth the wait

‘cause it’s gotta be right next time
It’s gotta be right next time around
She’s already made up her mind
It’s gonna be right next time around

She doesn’t need anyone
Just to have somebody there
She’s been down that road before
And it’s goin’ nowhere

She’s a little bit gun-shy its true
Her heart’s protected, but there’s no barbed wire
A man on a mission, he just might get through
Armed with good intentions, and a strong desire

‘cause it’s gotta be right next time
It’s gotta be right next time around
She’s already made up her mind
It’s gonna be right next time around

She’s waiting on the real thing
She just can’t help believin’
It’s gonna be right next time

She’s already made up her mind
It’s gonna be right next time around

It’s gotta be right next time
It’s gotta be right next time around
She’s already made up her mind
It’s gonna be right next time around
