Dum dum dum
Oh oh oh oh (the longest) for the longest time
Oh oh oh (the longest) for the longest time

If you say 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 and
When you put your arms around me
I haven't been there for the longest time

Oh oh oh oh (the longest) for the longest time
Oh oh oh (the longest) for the longest time

And that voice you're hearing in my heart
Ain't the greediest miracle of all
It's 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 come this far
And it's more than I hoped for

Who knows how much further will 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 all this time
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

Oh oh oh oh (the longest) for the longest time
Oh oh oh (the longest) for the longest time
Oh oh oh (the longest) for the longest time
Oh oh oh the longest, for the longest time
