Long Long Time (Linda Ronstadt)


Love will abide
Take things in stride
Sounds like good advice
But there’s no one at my side
And time washes clean
Love’s wounds unseen
That’s what someone told me
But I don’t know what it means
Cause I’ve done everything I know
To try and make you mine
And I think I’m gonna love you
For a long, long time
Caught in my fears
Blinking back the tears
I can’t say you hurt me
When you’ve never let me near
And I never drew
One response from you
All the while you fell
Over the girls you never knew
And I’ve done everything I know
To try and make you mine
And I think it’s gonna hurt me
For a long, long time
Wait for the day, you go away
Knowing that you warned me
Of the price I’d have to pay
And life’s full of loss
Who knows the cost
Living in the memory
Of the love that never was
Cause I’ve done everything I know
To try and change your mind
And I think I’m gonna miss you
For a long, long time
Cause I’ve done everything I know
To try and make you mine
And I think I’m gonna love you
For a long, long time
