There was a young man
Watched his life unfold each day
He only wanted to play
He only needed a ray
And then he found out
One rainy afternoon, he'd lost
All he'd earned and was tossed
In the rivers he'd crossed
CHORUS:
And there he came across the dreamer
Who told him life was but a dream
And all that you can see is all that you can be
There was a young love destined to get old someday
Didn't happen that way
They never learned how to say
We've got a long, long time between us
We've got a long, long way to go
But I believe if we let it, our love will grow
[guitar solo (Joe Tansin)]
CHORUS
We've got a long, long time between us
We've got a long, long way to go
We've got a long, long time between us
We've got a long, long way to go
We've got a long, long time between us
We've got a long, long, long way to go
Long way to go
(Long, long time between us)
And I believe if we let it, our love will grow
Our love will grow
Our love will grow.
