Lyrics

Hey, lady, where did we go wrong
And maybe, that we could get along
This crazy feelin' burnin' inside
I'm askin' how long, how long
Well my heart's been up and turnin'
Whippin' and a stirrin'
How long, how long

You have to make a choice
Who you really love
Just let me know how you feel
Take your time now, baby
Don't lie to me, lady
Don't need no one else in my life

How long is this heartache
How long does it take, yeah
How long is this heartache
And I know it's gonna hurt you
Yeah, how long, yeah

Said the good times, we said a so long
And the bad times, it's just the same old song
My heart's been torn and thrown aside
I'm askin' how long, how long
Yeah, since you took me higher
My soul's been set on fire
How long, how long

You have to make a choice
Who you really love
Just let me know how you feel
Take your time now, baby
Don't lie to me, lady
Don't need no one else in my life

How long is this heartache
How long does it take, yeah
How long is this heartache
And I know it's gonna hurt you
Yeah, how long, yeah
How long, baby!

Take your time now, baby
Don't lie to me, lady
Don't need no one else in my life

How long is this heartache
How long does it take, yeah, yeah
How long is this heartache
And I know it's gonna hurt you

How long is this heartache
(Oh, how long)
How long does it take, yeah
(Oh, how long)
How long is this heartache
And I know it's gonna hurt you

How long is this heartache
(Oh, how long)
How long does it take, yeah, yeah
(Oh, how long)
How long is this heartache
And I know it's gonna hurt you
Yeah, how long, yeah
