Long Time

written by Gene Clark

 

On the corner there are letters that illuminate the night to a glare
On the streets are many faces all just looking for a place called somewhere
From the signs brightly flashing so they're ultimately clashing the air
To a long time, love is such a long time

Grinnin' words linked with changes leading far beyond the last unaware
Attitudes to deal with strangers and the dangers in the longing to care
From the information vendor and rich educated splendor they stare
To a long time, love is such a long time

Such a long time
Such a long time
From the moment which is timeless and the fact there is so much we can share
To a long time, love is such a long time
Love is such a long time.
