Verse:
Nev - er thought that you would be stand - ing here so close to me.  There's so much I feel that I should say,
But words can wait un - til some oth - er day.
 
Chorus:
Just kiss me once, then kiss me twice, then kiss me once a - gain,  Its Been a Long, Long Time.
Have - n't felt like this my dear, since can't re - mem - ber when,  Its Been a Long, Long Time.
You'll nev - er know how man - y dreams I dreamed a - bout you,  Or just how emp - ty they all seemed with - out you.
So kiss me once, then kiss me twice, then kiss me once a - gin,  It's Been a Long, Long Time.
