In it for the long haul

Funny how life happens
No rules, no plans at all
just endless days of chaos
sitting staring at the wall

and then right out of nowhere
a spark begins to flame
a meeting, small distraction
but, i won’t forget your name

I’m in this for the long haul
I’m in this till the end
I’m in this for the long haul
Now that you’re my friend
I’m in this for the long haul
You drive me round the bend
I’m in this for the long haul
I’m in this till the end

Time goes by as always
Lives go on, in different ways
We’re still actors going nowhere
on different stages, different plays

One night stands behind us
Wondering just who they were
With no hope for a future
Leaving early, less they stir

I’m in this for the long haul
I’m in this till the end
I’m in this for the long haul
Now that you’re my friend
I’m in this for the long haul
You drive me round the bend
I’m in this for the long haul
I’m in this till the end

a lightning bolt from nowhere
like quicksilver on sheet steel
we connected from a distance
And this I know is real

Plans, and yes, a future
Silent thought in both our minds
Not the same yet, but converging
We both have to read the signs

I’m in this for the long haul
I’m in this till the end
I’m in this for the long haul
Now that you’re my friend
I’m in this for the long haul
You drive me round the bend
I’m in this for the long haul
I’m in this till the end

We get close, and that is scary
We try to push the other back
We don’t know how to show affection
It’s a skill we both must lack

But, I swear I’m going nowhere
and nowhere’s somewhere new
But, I swear to god that somewhere
Is just nowhere without you

I’m in this for the long haul
I’m in this till the end
I’m in this for the long haul
Now that you’re my friend
I’m in this for the long haul
You drive me round the bend
I’m in this for the long haul
I’m in this till the end
