and be about this business

of trying to find me

 

I didn't know when I met you

that your freedom was still new

I didn't know there were many things

that you still had to work through

I was looking for a lover

and you weren't over your last one

and it took a little to discover

that perhaps we had never really begun

 

It's gonna take a little longer than I expected

for me to take another chance

it's gonna take a little longer than I expected

to look for more than just romance

but I'm not afraid to wait

and I'm not unhappy now

it just took a little longer than I expected

before what I thought was love

fell down

 

It took a little longer than I expected

it took a little longer than I expected

it took a little longer

than I expected

yes, it did

 

 

A Little Longer Than I Expected

 

It took a little longer than I expected

to finish up with you

it took a little longer than I expected

to get over my angry views

and now that they're all over

I can let you go in peace
