[A]Oh, [D]oh,  [G] oh  
[A]For the longest time

[D]If you [A]said good[G]bye to me ton[D]ight
[D]There would [A]still be [E]music left to [A]write
[F#]What else could [Bm]I do   
[A7]I'm so insp[D]ired [D7/A]by you     
[G]That hasn't[Em] happened for the[A] longest[D] time

[D]Once I [A]thought my [G]innocence was [D]gone
[D]Now I k[A]now that [E]happiness goes [A]on  
[F#]Thats where you [Bm]found me
[A7]When you put your [D]arms a[D7/A]round me
[G]I havent [Em]been there for the [A]longest ti[D]me  


[D]Oh, [A]oh, [D]oh   [G]    
[A]For the longest time[D]    
[A]Oh, [D]oh,  [G] oh  
[A]For the longest


[D]Im that [A]voice youre [G]hearing in the [D]hall
[D]And the [A]greatest [E]miracle of [A]all  
[F#]Is how I [Bm]need you
[A7]And how you n[D]eeded [D7/A]me too     
[G]That has[Em]nt happened for the [A]longest [D]time


[F#m]Maybe this wont la[Bm]st very long
But [C#7]you feel so right
And [F#m]I could be wrong
[F#m]Maybe Ive been h[Bm]oping too hard
[E7]But Ive gone this far
And its [A]mor  [A/G]e tha    [A/F#]n I ho     [A/E]ped for

[D]Who knows [A]how much [G]further well go[D] on  
[D]Maybe I[A]ll be s[E]orry when youre [A]gone
[F#]Ill take my[Bm] chances
[A7]I forgot how n[D]ice r[D7/A]omance is
[G]I havent [Em]been there for the [A]longest [D]time

[F#m]I had second th[Bm]oughts at the start
I s[C#7]aid to myself
Hold [F#m]on to your heart
[F#m]Now I know the w[Bm]oman that you are
Youre [E7]wonderful so far
And its [A]mor  [A/G]e tha    [A/F#]n I ho     [A/E]ped for


[D]I dont c[A]are what [G]consequence it b[D]rings
[D]I have b[A]een a foo[E]l for lesser t[A]hings
[F#]I want you [Bm]so bad
[A7]I think you [D]ought to [D7]know that
[G]I intend to [Em]hold you for the [A]longest [D]time



[D]Oh, [A]oh, [D]oh   [G]    
[A]For the longest time[D]    


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
Thats where you found me
When you put your arms around me
I havent been there for the longest time

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

Im that voice youre hearing in the hall
And the greatest miracle of all
Is how I need you
And how you needed me too
That hasnt happened for the longest time

Maybe this wont last very long
But you feel so right
And I could be wrong
Maybe Ive been hoping too hard
But Ive gone this far
And its more than I hoped for

Who knows how much further well go on
Maybe Ill be sorry when youre gone
Ill take my chances
I forgot how nice romance is
I havent 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
Youre wonderful so far
And its more than I hoped for

I dont 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

Oh, oh, oh
For the longest time
