      About "The Longest Time"

      Lyrics for Billy Joel - "The Longest Time"

      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 where 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
      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
