Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
If you said goodbye to me tonight
What else could I do
That hasn't happened for the longest time
Once I thought my innocence was gone
That's where you found me
I haven't been there for the longest time
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
I'm that voice you're hearing in the hall
Is how I need you
That hasn't happened for the longest time
Maybe this won't last very long
And I could be wrong
But I've gone this far

Maybe I'll be sorry when you're gone
I forgot how nice romance is

I said to myself
Now I know the woman that you are
And it's more than I hoped for
I don't care what consequence it brings
I want you so bad
I intend to hold you for the longest time
