07. Longshot

In The Making...
by Nevertheless



 

What if the fire burns out?
What if we're left without
Anyone to call our own?
You've got it figured out
But if ever you're in doubt
You never have to be alone
People will come
And people will go
And I could be wrong
But there's one thing I know

It's a long shot, baby
But someday both of us will die
So, I was thinking maybe
I could be your semi-perfect guy
You don't know me, baby
But I was hoping we could try
For a long shot, you and I

What if we take a chance?
What if you break your plans
And let me sweep you off your feet?
You say you hate romance
But I'm a persistent man
And I want you here with me
People will come
And people will go
And I could be wrong
But there's one thing I know

I've been praying all my life for love that's true,
But I never thought I'd get a girl like you.
Oh, can't you see, Heaven sent you to me?

Behind the Song:
“This is a fun song about a guy trying to convince a certain girl to go out with him. He really believes that she is right, so he gives her all of this silly banter, such as “Someday both of us will die” and “Let me sweep you off your feet” to sway her. Really, it shows just how far a guy will go to get a girl, even if it is a long shot.” - Joshua Pearson (Nevertheless)
