Lyrics for Longest Time by Billy Joel :
Artie with New Directions:
Woah-ooh-oh-oh (Jake: The longest)
For the longest time (Marley: Time)
Woah-ooh-oh (Jake: The longest)
For the longest

Artie:
If you said goodbye to me tonight (Ryder: Oh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
There would still be music left to write

Kitty (with New Directions):
What else could I do
I’m so inspired by you
That hasn’t happened
(For the longest time)

Artie:
Once I thought my innocence was gone (Ryder: Oh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Now I know that happiness goes on

Kitty:
I’ll take my chances
I forgot how nice romance is

Artie and Kitty (with New Directions):
I haven’t been there (for the longest time)

Artie with New Directions:
Woah-ooh-oh-oh (Jake: The longest)
For the longest time (Marley: Time)
Woah-ooh-oh (Jake: The longest)
For the longest

Sam:
I’m that voice you’re hearing in the hall (Ryder: Oh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
And the greatest miracle of all

Marley:
Is how I need you
And how you needed me too

Marley and Sam (with New Directions):
That hasn’t happened (for the longest time)

Ryder (with New Directions):
Maybe this won’t last very long
But you feel so right
And I could be wrong
Maybe I’ve been hoping too hard
But I’ve gone this far
And it’s (more than I’d hoped for)

Jake:
Who knows how much further we’ll go on (Ryder: Oh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Maybe I’ll be sorry when you’re gone

Marley (with New Directions):
I’ll take my chances
I forgot how nice romance is
I haven’t been there
(For the longest time)

Ryder (with New Directions):
I had second thoughts at the start
I said to myself
Hold on to your heart
Now I know the woman that you are
You’re wonderful so far
And it’s (more than I’d hoped for)

Artie:
I don’t care what consequence it brings (Ryder: Oh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
I have been a fool for lesser things

Artie and Kitty (with New Directions):
I want you so bad
I think you ought to know that
I intend to hold you
(For the longest time)

Artie (and Marley) with New Directions:
Woah-ooh-oh-oh (Jake: The longest)
(For the longest time)
Woah-ooh-oh (Marley: Woah-oh-oh-oh-oh) (Jake: The longest)
For the longest (time)

Woah-ooh-oh (Marley: The longest time) (Jake: The longest)
For the longest (time)
Woah-ooh-oh (Jake: The longest)

Artie with Marley and New Directions:
For the longest time
