Taking ideas from notes you've read
Of where I wanna go
You told me once there was nothing better
Than the view from Cupid's bow
Knowing that he's aiming at the heart you've been claiming
You held me captive and dreamed of being captivated

It's the check's you write
That I know I can't cash
It's my favorite kiss
I ain't ever getting back
It's the longest night
That I'm gonna live through
And time's on my side
And we'll forget about you
We'll forget about you

Told me once there was a great payoff in taking something slow
I met you halfway between our hearts and you never even showed
Oh, I been waiting all this time
I've been a'waiting
And nothing's changing
All this time
I've been a'waiting

It's the check's you write
That I know I can't cash
It's my favorite kiss
I ain't ever getting back
It's the longest night
That I'm gonna live through
And time's on my side
And we'll forget about you
We'll forget about you

Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Ah oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Ah oh oh oh

Oh, standing next to her
Someone I used to know
I hung out my hand
I opened up my heart
All the words you said
Are ringing in my head

Cuz they're the check's you write
That I know I can't cash
It's the favorite kiss
I ain't ever getting back
It's the longest night
That I'm gonna live through
And time's on my side
Time's on my side
Time's on my side
We'll forget about you
We'll forget about you
