The Longest Time Lyrics - Billy Joel



Review The Song (19)


Woa, oh, oh, oh
For the longest time
Woa, 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

Woa, oh, oh, oh
For the longest time
Woa, 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

Woa, oh, oh, oh
For the longest time
Woa, oh,oh
For the longest time
Woa, oh, oh
For the longest time
Woa, oh, oh,
For the longest time
(Fade Out)

plain beauty | Reviewer: Dani | 5/20/13

This song is just epic. It's a great lyric, wonderful melody and so easy to learn and sing :D I love singing it!!! I have two songs that I always burn on to my car-cd's, this one and Martin Sexton with Diner :) epic songs you can't get sick of :D :D :D

What a classic! | Reviewer: Ian Fuller | 12/13/10

This is the definition of music. Such an amazing and beautiful song. I introduced this song to my Japanese wife while we were dating before we married. She got hooked on this song faster than a snapper gets hooked on a red prawn.
Now, it's our song and we just love it. The Japanese love Billy Joel, Elton John, The Beetles, The Travelling Wilbury's and John Farnham.
The music these days is just that techno crap, doof doof and boof boof! It makes no sense at all. There is no meaning in today's music. By the way, I'm not an old grampa. I'm a 28 year old but I appreciate this music!
C'mon Billy, please come to Japan.
PPPLLLLLEEEEEAAAASSSSEEEEEEEEEEEE!

YAY!! | Reviewer: survamangalambhavathu | 1/2/10

BEST SONG EVER!! Oh my gosh best in the world! And, for "liz" you could change it so it was about a boy. Watch:
had second thoughts at the start
I said to myself
Hold on to your heart
Now I know the man that you are
You're wonderful so far
And it's more than I hoped for

OMG | Reviewer: cutopia1850909090909090 | 1/1/10

I love this song SO SO SO SO SO much. Have you seen the music video, where the janitor's like, "You gonna be here much longer son?" And he says, "No, not much longer." Well, I keep imagining that he says....which is part of the song except for one word,well, here it is:

Janitor: You gonna be here much longer son?
Billy Joel (Singing) I intend to stay here for the longest time!

That's pretty funny to me. BUT, STILL THE BEST SONG EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER!!!!!!!

THIS SONG IS MY LIFE!!!! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/11/09

Oh mi gosh....this song is SO UNBELIEVABLY AMAZING I just cannot stand to go a single day without hearing it. I listen to it each and every day. It's the perfect song for acapella. I proposed it to my acapella group and they loved it...they said yes right away. If anyone is out there who is looking for an amazing song that sticks.....RIGHT HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If anyone is out there who doesn't like this song--listen to it again, and again, and again...slowly, you will learn to worship this song~~!!!!! I love this song and BILLY JOEL!!!! Thank you!!! Thank you for creating this song!!!

this song is so fye | Reviewer: loudlatino | 4/20/09

this is what i call music it makes you think of how much music has changed now things are so based on technology but this song shows how a couple of talented singers can get together and almost with just there voices make a great song !

Great Song | Reviewer: Robyn | 3/14/08

I love this song!

My favourite part is:
"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"


Because before I decided to actually start dating my boyfriend I was thinking about it for ages, I listened to this song and it inspired me to do it. I have been a fool for lesser things and he was worth every effort. No regrets.

great | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/16/08

I love this song-made a fool of myself and sang it in the hallway of my high school with my boyfriend and his friend. Absolutely awesome, love it!

The Piano Man | Reviewer: Leone | 12/24/07

Billy Joel is absolutely amazing, not only because he's such a great singer and musician, but because he is influenced by so many different kinds of music and writes so many songs in different styles. i think that's why so many critics don't like him, because he doesn't just stay in one genre, he tries all sorts of things and does them brilliantly.
Piano Man forever!

love it too | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/12/07

... and i'm :) every time i hear it.and there is also a fantastic acappella-version of it sung by a great german acappella-group called "basta" (just have a look at youtube).

My Hero | Reviewer: Shawna | 9/14/07

I'm have a slightly unhealthy obsession with Billy Joel, and I love this song so much!
I found out yesterday we are singing it in my choir and I'm so excited!
Thats right all, be jealous.

Wow! | Reviewer: Hannah | 8/9/07

I just heard this song for the first timelast night and love it. It is so much fun!

Who sing background for this song? | Reviewer: G@ry | 7/13/07

I collect Doo Wop music, and this song is clearly Doo Wop. Does anyone know what group sang background for this song?

G@ry
