"The Long Run" as written by and Glenn Lewis Frey Don Henley....
I used to hurry a lot, I used to worry a lot
I used to stay out till the break of day
Oh, that didn't get it, it was high time I quit it
I just couldn't carry on that way

Oh, I did some damage
I know it's true
Didn't know I was so lonely
Till I found you

You can go the distance
We'll find out in the long run
(In the long run)
We can handle some resistance
If our love is a strong one
(Is a strong one)

People talkin' about us
They got nothin' else to do
When it all comes down
We will still come through

In the long run
Ooh, I want to tell you
It's a long run

You know I don't understand
Why you don't teach yourself better
Do the crazy things that you do
'Cause all the debutantes in Houston, baby
Couldn't hold a candle to you

Did you do it for love?
Did you do it for money?
Did you do it for spite?
Did you think you had to, honey?

Who is gonna make it?
We'll find out in the long run
(In the long run)
I know we can take it
If our love is a strong one
(Is a strong one)

Well, we're scared
But we ain't shakin'
We're kind of bent
But we ain't breakin'

In the long run
Oh, I want to tell you
It's a long run
In the long run, in the long run

Gonna find out, ooh find out
Long, long, long, long
Long, long, long, long
Ooh, run, run, run, baby
Run, run, baby

Long, long, long, long
