Willie Nelson

"How Long Have You Been There"

[Verse 1]
I've been walking in the shadows for so long that I forgot the sun can shine
I've turned away from everyone and everything that wanted to be mine
Somehow I always shot my eyes and heart to everything that I could share
Now I'm standing still and I'm wondering just how long have you been there

[Verse 2]
And every path I've taken I have turned around and quickly closed the door
It seems as though I knew if I ever stop to feel I want more
I kept a steady run so my eyes could never focus anywhere
Now I'm standing still and I'm wondering just how long have you been there

[Bridge]
How long have you been standing there protecting me from love that shouldn't be
Knowing all alone that I could realize that you were meant for me

[Verse 3]
Now I've got to mend every broken fence and bridge that I have burned
I've got to clear away the cobwebs in my heart so I can start to learn
For I realize that you've been waiting just to teach me how to care
Now I'm standing still and I'm wondering just how long have you been there

[Outro]
And now I'm standing still and I'm wondering just how long have you been there
