Love Lasts Long
by Tom Chapin
2009 The Last Music Co. (ASCAP)

Sometimes I get it and sometimes I don't,
When I try to sort out what is true.
Who is it selling, who is it buying,
And who is it that's fooling who?
When things aren't the best the biggest test
Is keeping faith all the way through.
And I know the strongest,
What lasted the longest,
Is you, baby, it's you.

I was walking my own path,
You walking yours,
Somehow we met on the road.
And we stuck together
Through all kinds of weather,
Unlike most of the people we know.
You were the best
When things were most stressed,
And kept the faith all the way through.
To me the clearest and always the dearest
Is you, baby, it's you.
Love lasts long. Carries on.
One is fragile, two are strong
When love lasts long.

When the fickle wind blows out and blows in
People forget where they stand.
And hallowed ground is turned upside down
And fear flies loose on the land.
When the criers are cryin'
And the liars are lyin',
Amidst all the ballyhoo
I look to the strongest,
What's lasted the longest,
Is you, baby, it's you.
Love lasts long. Carries on.
One is fragile, two are strong
When love lasts long.

There was fog in the valley
On the road to the airport
But we took off right on time.
I sat by the window watching the gray world
Fall away as the little plane climbed.
The sun came breaking bright and gold
The sky turned a brilliant blue.
I was thinking of the one I love,
It's you, baby, it's you.
Love lasts long. Carries on.
One is fragile, two are strong
When love lasts long.


This song appears on Tom Chapin's Let The Bad Times Roll CD.
