For the Longest Time- Billy Joel

Oh, Oh, Oh

For the longest time

Oh, Oh, Oh

For the longest time

If you said goodbye to me tonight

There would still be music left to write

What else could I do, I’m so inspired by you

That hasn’t happened for the longest time

Once I thought my innocence was gone

Now I know that happiness goes on

That’s when you found me, when you put your arms around me

I haven’t been there for the longest time

Oh, Oh, Oh

For the longest time

Oh, Oh, Oh

For the longest time

I’m that voice you’re hearing in the hall

And the greatest miracle of all

Is how I need you, and how you needed me too

That hasn’t happened in the longest time

Maybe this won’t last very long

But you feel so right

And I could be wrong

Maybe I’ve gone this far

And it’s more than I’d hoped for

Who knows how much further we’ll go on

Maybe I’ll be sorry when you’re gone

I’ll take my chances, I forgot how nice romance is

I haven’t been there for the longest time

I had second thoughts at the start

I said to myself, hold on to your heart

Now I know the woman that you are

It’s wonderful so far

And you’re more than I’d hoped for

I don’t care what consequence it brings

I have been a fool for lesser things

I want you so bad, I think you ought to know that

I intend to hold you for the longest time
