Never thought that you would be standing here so close to me.  There's so much I feel that I should say,
But words can wait until some other day.
Just kiss me once, then kiss me twice, then kiss me once again,  Its Been a Long, Long Time.
Haven't felt like this my dear, since can't remember when,  Its Been a Long, Long Time.
You'll never know how many dreams I dreamed about you,  Or just how empty they all seemed without you.
So kiss me once, then kiss me twice, then kiss me once agin,  It's Been a Long, Long Time.
