Billy Joel - For the longest time
Tekst en muziek: Billy Joel
(1983)






Dum dum dum
Woh oh oh oh
For the longest time
Woh oh oh
For the longest



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 where you found me
When you put your arms around me
I haven’t been there for the longest time



Woh oh oh oh
For the longest time
Woh oh oh
For the longest



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 for the longest time



Maybe this won’t last very long
But you feel so right
And I could be wrong
Maybe I’ve been hoping too hard
But I’ve gone this far
And it’s more than I 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
You’re wonderful so far
And it’s more than I 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



Woh oh oh oh
For the longest time
Woh oh oh
For the longest



Woh oh oh oh
For the longest time
Woh oh oh
For the longest



Woh oh oh oh
For the longest time
Woh oh oh
