It's a cinch that I've been wrong
And it's clear it's not been long
Since I was hard on you
But now a time has come
When yesterday don't mean nothin'
Now I'm in love with you
And you've taken me the long way around

Take a look how young we are
A month has changed the moon and the stars
Changing the things we do
You've been lookin' for something strong
When other things don't mean nothin'
Now I'm in love with you
And you've taken me the long way around

Well I can't see beyond the doubt that's in your eye
It's on the outskirts of my fading alibi

It's a cinch that I've been wrong
And it's clear it's not been long
Since I was hard on you
But now a time has come
When yesterday don't mean nothin'
Now I'm in love with you
And you've taken me the long way around
Now I'm in love with you
And you've taken me the long way around
