We raced each other on one summer
Against the setting sun
The longer our shadows got
The faster we would run
Never gave a second thought
About what might become
We'd just run

I was so in love with you
And that love it left me blind
I just ignored your carelessness
I took it all in stride
But sometime in the early fall
I musta lost my mind over you
What could I do

Oh and the good times never lasted long enough
The good times never lasted long

Ex-lover never was a name I'd ever counted on
But the way we lived our lives those days
Well I guess I shoulda known
The things that seemed to matter most
Were not the ones to blame
The more I tried to change for you
The more you stayed the same

Oh and the good times never lasted long enough
The good times never lasted long

It took a lot of tears to see
The fault was not my own
I'd given you my heart
But you considered it a loan
I'd like to trade those years we spent
In empty happiness
For one more day to race that setting sun
Only this time, there'll only be one
To run

When the good times never lasted long enough
The good times never lasted long
Long
