Long Long Time Lyrics

Linda Ronstadt’s “Long Long Time” is a timeless country ballad delving into the enduring pain of unrequited love. This heartfelt song, penned by Gary White, graced Ronstadt’s 1970 album, “Silk Purse,” and swiftly rose to prominence, peaking at number 25 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Opening with a haunting, guitar-driven melody, Ronstadt’s vocals exude vulnerability as she narrates a tale of unreciprocated affection. She grapples with her unfulfilled love, acknowledging her struggle to move on while fervently clinging to hope for a change of heart.”

Long Long Time Lyrics

[Verse 1]

Love will abide
Take things in stride
Sounds like good advice
But there’s no one at my side

[Pre-Chorus]

And time washes clean
Love’s wounds unseen
That’s what someone told me
But I don’t know what it means

[Chorus]

‘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

[Verse 2]

Caught in my fears
Blinking back the tears
I can’t say you hurt me
When you never let me near

[Pre-Chorus]

And I never drew
One response from you
All the while you fell
All over girls you never knew

[Chorus]

‘Cause I’ve done everything I know
To try and make you mine
And I think it’s going to hurt me
For a long, long time

[Verse 3]

Wait for the day
You’ll go away
Knowing that you warned me
Of the price I’d have to pay

[Pre-Chorus]

And life’s full of flaws
Who knows the cause?
Living in the memory
Of a love that never was

[Chorus]

‘Cause I’ve done everything I know
To try and change your mind
And I think I’m going to 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
