For The Longest Time Lyrics

Artist: Billy Joel


Oh, Oh, Oh
For the longest time
Oh, Oh, Oh
For the longest time

If you said 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 when you found me, when you put your arms around me
I haven't been there for the longest time

Oh, Oh, Oh
For the longest time
Oh, Oh, Oh
For the longest time

I'm that voice you're hearing in the hall
And the greatest miracle of all
Is how I need you, and how you needed me too
That hasn't happened in the longest time

Maybe this won't last very long
But you feel so right
And I could be wrong
Maybe I've gone this far
And it's more than I'd hoped for

Who knows how much further we'll 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 at the start
I said to myself, hold on to your heart
Now I know the woman that you are
It's wonderful so far
And you're more than I'd 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

it's.. "Now I know the woman that you are
You're wonderful so far
And it's more than I'd hoped for
"

not.. "Now I know the woman that you are
It's wonderful so far
And you're more than I'd hoped for"


AND


"Maybe this won't last very long
But you feel so right
And I could be wrong
Maybe I've gone this far
And it's more than I'd hoped for"

is wrong, it should be...

"Maybe this won't last very long
But you feel so right
And I could be wrong
Maybe i've been hoping too hard
I've gone this far
And it's more than I'd hoped for"

There is a lyric missing here.

Maybe this won't last very long
But you feel so right
And I could be wrong

Missing : Maybe I've been hoping too hard

But (not Maybe) I've gone this far
And it's more than I'd hoped for
