Now how can I live without whiskey and wine
When I know that forever is such a long time?
Well I know that I could do without it just fine
If only forever weren't such a long time

Oh I know that my heart would relent from its aching
If it could see beyond this turn
I'd forgive and forget and no more would I yearn
For a love that has long ago ceased to burn

I'd shuck the shackles away from my heart
I'd never notice that we were apart
No loneliness would never keep me from shaking you loose
If this weren't true

Yes without your love I'd get along fine
If only forever weren't such a long time

Your leaving me lonely it is such a crime
When you know that forever is such a long time
For solace in sadness is so hard to find
When I know that forever is such a long time

For my longing is lasting long beyond its use
And its taming is beyond my ken
I'd struggle and I'd slave and I'd begin again
If I only would know that your love I might win

But I can see my tomorrows stretched out
In a long and unbearable desert of doubt
And it's too much to bear when I see that you will not be there
If I only wouldn't care

But I think that I may be losing my mind
Knowing forever is such a long time
