Waylon Jennings How Long Have You Been There Lyrics

Last updated:

I've been walking in the shadows for so long that I forgot the sun could shine
I've turned away from everything and everyone that wanted to be mine
Somehow I always shot my eyes and heart to anything that I might share
Now I'm standing still and I wonder how long have you been there
Every path I've taken I've turned around and quickly closed the door
It seems that all I knew if I ever stop to feel I want more
I kept a steady run so my eyes could never focus anywhere
Now I'm standing still and I wonder how long have you been there
How long have you been standing there protecting me from love that shouldn't be
Knowing all alone that I would realize that you were meant for me
Now I've got to mend every broken fence and bridge that I have burned
And clear away the cobwebs in my heart so I can start to learn
For now I realize that you've been waiting just to teach me how to care
Now I'm standing still and I wonder how long have you been there
Now I'm standing still and I wonder how long have you been there
