    Lyrics

    Whoa oh oh oh
    For the longest time
    Whoa oh oh
    For the longest...

    If you said good-bye 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
    When you put you're arms around me
    I haven't been there for the longest time

    Whoa oh oh oh
    For the longest time
    Whoa 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 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 gone this far
    And it's more than I 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 onto 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

    Whoa oh oh oh
    For the longest time
    Whoa oh oh
    For the longest time
    Whoa oh oh
    For the longest time (Repeat and fade)
    Thanks to Billy J for the contribution to this song.

      I use to listen to this song when I was little bitty, maybe 2 or 3, I loved it then but didn't really undestand the lyrics, now that I do I love it even more.
