"The Longest Time" as written by and Billy Joel....
Inflammable material's implanted in my head
It's a suspect device that left two thousand dead

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 how you found me
When you put your arms around me
I haven't been there for the longest time

Whoa, oh, oh
For the longest time
Whoa, oh, oh
For the longest

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

Whoa, oh, oh
For the longest time
Whoa, oh, oh
For the longest time
Whoa, oh, oh
For the longest time
Whoa, oh, oh
