The Long Run
Don Henley/Glenn Frey
I used to hurry a lot, I used to worry a lot,
I used to stay out till the break of the day.
Oh that didn't git it, it was high time, I quit it,
I just couldn't carry on that way.
Oh, I did some damage, I know it's true.
Didn't know I was so lonely till I found you.

You can go the distance.
We'll find out in the long run. IN THE LONG RUN
We can handle some resistance
if our love is a strong one. IS A STRONG ONE
People talkin' about us, they got nothin' else to do.
When it all comes down we will still come through
in the long run.
Ooh I want to tell you it's a long run.

You know I don't understand why you don't treat yourself better,
do the crazy things that you do.
'Cause all the debutantes in Houston, baby,
couldn't hold a candle to you.
Did you do it for love, did you do it for money?
Did you do it for spite, did you think you had to, honey?

Who is gonna make it?
We'll find out in the long run. IN THE LONG RUN
I know we can take it
if our love is a strong one. IS A STRONG ONE
Well we're scared but we ain't shakin',
kinda bent but we ain't breakin'
in the long run.
Ooh I want to tell you it's a long run.
