Phone rings, middle of the night
I fumble through the fog to find the light
I here your voice at the end of the line sayin,'
"Baby, we can make it work this time."
It's not that I don't believe that it's so
There's just one thing I need to know so baby
Won't you tell me

How long is this time gonna be
'Til you decide that you wanna be free
How long is this time gonna take
'Til I'm lyin' awake with another heartache
How long is this time gonna be

You look like an angel, standin' at my door
Just as beautiful as every time before
You know my heart like the back of your hand
And what I
Wouldn't do to have you love me again
But one more fall is all I can take
So have mercy on me, for Heaven's sake and
Tell me

How long is this time gonna be
'Til you decide to fly away from me
How long is this time gonna last
'Til someone new puts me back in your past
How long is this time gonna be

My foolish mind wants you back in my bed
But my
Better judgement's still shakin' it's head
Baby, you make it so hard to be strong
I want so bad to believe this night
Can make it all right
Oh, but what if I'm wrong so please tell me

How long is this time gonna be
'Til you turn around and walk out on me
How long 'til this time has to end
And you leave my life in pieces again

How long is this time gonna hurt
If you decide forever's never gonna work, girl
How long is this time gonna be baby tell me
How long is this time gonna be

I know I shouldn't but I will
I can't hide the way I feel
Tell me this time that it's real
How long
