For the Longest Time Lyrics - Billy Joel

Review The Song (8)

Oh, oh, oh
For the longest time
Oh, oh, oh
For the longest
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..

this song | Reviewer: josh | 2/22/13

i have a girl that i have been in love with for a very long time. we would get in petty fights and i was so clouded by being a yojung adult and partying that i forgot about whats important. this song explains alot.

Ideal a capella performance song | Reviewer: M Loh | 8/29/10

This song in my humble opinion is a very easy and accessible number to perform a capella, whether on your own or with a small backing group. I've enjoyed performing it several times at talent shows- after watching some of Mr Joel's old live performances from Youtube to get ideas of how to perform it in his own unique way. This song will always have that unique 80s feel which reminisces on the 50s...

For the longest time | Reviewer: Courtney | 5/4/10

I was blown away by a barbershop quartet at my high school that sang it. The guy I like was the person singing the lyrics and it's how we feel about each other.... :)
It's such a great and meaningful song. It's very catchy too.

The Best | Reviewer: Rudy | 4/30/09

I have sadly recently ended my marriage of five years and am moving on with somebody new, but this song seems to say everything that i need to say to her from my perspective. spooky how the words are exactly what i need to tell her...

Perfect words | Reviewer: anonymous | 1/5/08

This song is exactly how i feel about this guy i know. It's such a great feeling to have a song you can relate to so well.

for the longest time | Reviewer: alexis | 11/24/07

Yes, it's so good!
Doesn't somebody wouldn't have for me all the voice writen for singing "For the longest time" from Bily Joel : I would like to sing that with friends for the new year, but it would be better for me to have the music; all parts for all voices....
thx 'u for your help

special song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/23/07

Im going to sing this song to a girl i know. I think she will hear the things i have been wanting to say to her. Billy your awsome!

For the longest time | Reviewer: Thomas Chrysler | 7/4/07

This is a great song, perhaps Billy Joel's best. I love the lyrics, but the vocal harmony stays in my memory forever!
