Original song composed for Portrait of a Serial Monogamist, the feature film written and directed by John Mitchell and Christina Zeidler
Original score by Don Pyle


Our love is like a flower
Wanting only to grow
But like the lawn, it’s turning green
And needing to be mowed

Will you love me forever?
Will you always be true?
Will you promise to be mine your whole life through
Start every day with a breakfast or two
I give thanks to the stars above me
Darling I’m crazy for you
So if you love me, you really love me
Here’s what we ought to do

Quit while we’re still ahead
Quit while we’re still ahead
Before the harsh hurtful words are said
Nothing good lasts forever
Time is as cruel as can be
All our promises will break
And love will flee
That is a fate I just don’t want to see

Let’s remember our time together
Sweet and honest and free
Let’s not wait until stormy weather
Wrecks it for you and me

Let’s quit while we’re still ahead
Quit while we’re still ahead
Before our romance is cold and dead
