Daryl Hall & John Oates – I Want To Know You For A Long Time lyrics

Laughing's short but loving lasts
I can't mix the future with the past
Can I stay close to you?
I wanna stay close to you

You've got yours and I've got mine
And what we have is so hard to define
Just take a look at your lifeline
Ooh, you've got a lot to shine

And say baby
I wanna know you for a long, long time
Ooh, and baby
I wanna know you for a long, long time

Oh, darling, lady friend
We'll see each other when it's time to show
Just for a minute or for a year
But then again, don't you and I know

The time between our time together
It doesn't exist, it grows old forever
Just take a look at your lifeline
Oh baby, you've got a lot to shine

All I know is that baby
I wanna know you for a long, long time
Ooh, and baby
Wanna know you for a long, long time
Wanna know, wanna know, wanna know baby

I wanna know baby, I wanna know baby
Oh, you got a lot to live girl
So I wanna know you
(Know ya for a long, long time)
I wanna know, wanna know, wanna know, baby

So much to live for girl, so much to live for girl
Oh, so I wanna know you, baby
Wanna know you for a long, long time
Wanna know, wanna know, wanna know, baby

I wanna know, I wanna know, I wanna know, I wanna know ya, girl
I wanna know ya, girl, ooh baby, baby, baby, baby
Wanna know you for a long, long time
Wanna know, wanna know, wanna know baby
Wanna know you girl, wanna know you girl
