Sittin' gettin' higher in the back of a limousine
While people all around me
They are finding it harder to dream
Impossible people seen only in nightmares
Are beginning to make it real
And disorder keeps fadin'
The times they are changin'
Well, I wish I was behind the wheel

So I could live it just a little bit longer
Do my best to make our love stronger
In a while I know it's gonna change
We've got to live it just a little bit longer
Do our best to make our love stronger
In a while I know it's gonna change

Well, time and time and time again
I've been stuck out in the rain
But life has been so doggone sweet
There's no reason to complain
But the time has come for all to be one
Yes, we can talk about it now
And from the middle of the mess
Here comes one more guess
And I know it's gonna work somehow

If we can live it just a little bit longer
Do our best to make our love stronger
In a while I know it's gonna change
We've got to live it just a little bit longer
Do our best to make our love stronger
In a while I know it's gonna change

Cause we've gotta live it just a little bit longer
Do our best to make our love stronger
In a while I know it's gonna change
We've got to live it just a little bit longer
Do our best to make our love stronger
In a while I know it's gonna change

Now who would ever believe it could happen
Right here in my hometown
Especially when it's so far north
Of the Mason-Dixon line
But some of the people they just won't forget
While others slip into regret
And if things keep goin' the way they're goin'
I just might get killed yet

But I wanna live it just a little bit longer
Do my best to make our love stronger
In a while I know it's gonna change
We've got to live it just a little bit longer
Do our best to make our love stronger
In a while I know it's gonna change
And in a while I know it's gonna change
And in a while I know it's gonna change
