    For the Longest Time Lyrics



    Oh, oh, oh
    For the longest time
    Oh, oh, oh
    For the longest time
    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 where you found me
    When you put your arms around me
    I haven't been there for the longest time


    Oh, oh, oh
    For the longest time
    Oh, 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


    I had second thoughts at the start
    I said to myself
    Hold on to your heart
    Now I know the woman that you are
    You're wonderful so far
    And it's more than I hoped for


    I don't care what consequence it brings
    I have been a fool for lesser things
    I want you so bad
    I think you ought to know that
    I intend to hold you for the longest time

    Repeat Chorus to end..

    Piano Man Lyrics


    It's nine o'clock on a Saturday
    The Regular crowd shuffles in
    There's an old man sitting next to me
    Makin' love to his tonic and gin

    He says, "Son, can you play me a memory
    I'm not really sure how it goes
    But it's sad and it's sweet and I knew it complete
    When I wore a younger man's clothes"

    La la la, de de da
    La la, de de da da dum

    Chorus:
    Sing us a song, you're the piano man
    Sing us a song tonight
    Well, we're all in the mood for a melody
    And you've got us feelin' alright

    Now John at the bar is a friend of mine
    He gets me my drinks for free
    And he's quick with a joke or to light up your smoke
    But there's someplace that he'd rather be
    He says, "bill, I believe this is killing me."
    As the smile ran away from his face
    "Well I'm sure that I could be a movie star
    If I could get out of this place"

    Oh, la la la, de de da
    La la, de de da da dum

    Now Paul is a real estate novelist
    Who never had time for a wife
    And he's talkin' with Davy, who's still in the navy
    And probably will be for life

    And the waitress is practicing politics
    As the businessmen slowly get stoned
    Yes, they're sharing a drink they call loneliness
    But it's better than drinkin' alone

    Chorus
    sing us a song you're the piano man
    sing us a song tonight well we're all in the mood
    for a melody and you got us feeling alright

    It's a pretty good crowd for a Saturday
    And the manager gives me a smile
    'Cause he knows that it's me they've been comin' to see
    To forget about life for a while
    And the piano, sounds like a carnavor
    And the microphone smells like a beer
    And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar
    And say, "Man, what are you doin' here."

    Oh, la la la, de de da
    La la, de de da da dum

    Chorus:
    sing us a song you're the piano man sing us a song tonight
    well we're all in the mood for a melody and you got us
    feeling alright
