Richie, Lionel - Long Long Way To Go Lyrics




You held my hand and then you slipped away
And I may never see your face again
So tell me how to fill the emptiness inside
Without love, what is life? And anyone who knew us
both can see We always were the better part of me
I never wanted to be this free And all this pain, when does it go away?

Then everytime I turn around And you're nowhere to be found I know

I gotta long long way to go Before I can say
goodbye to you Oh, I gotta long long way I know
Before I can say goodbye To all I ever knew, to you To you

From memory there is no hiding place Turn on the TV and I see you there
In every crowd there's always someone with your face
Everywhere, trying not to care

Then everytime I turn around And you're nowhere to be found I know

I gotta long long way to go Before I can say
goodbye to you Oh, I gotta long long way I know
Before I can say goodbye To all I ever knew

To you I wish you everything And all the best that life can bring
I only hope you think of me sometimes Oh, and even though I fell the pain
I know that you will love again The time will come and you'll move on

I gotta long long way to go Before I can say
goodbye to you Oh, I gotta long long way I know
Gotta long way to go Before I can say goodbye
Before I can say goodbye To all I ever knew
To all I ever knew I gotta long way to go
Before I say Say goodbye, say goodbye
But I wish you the best girl Oh and all of the rest to you

    Wow this man

  6. Margarita l Narvaez

  10. Jaks Shit

    great version. Def Leppards is great too

  11. Texman4268

    This is just a brilliant song. Lionel Richie has always been one of my favorite singers. He makes the song his own and as a huge Def Leppard fan, their version is so great. This song should have been a huge hit for them, but never got the recognition it deserved.

  12. rae sunshine

    this is always my current situation. I have cerebral palsy &-relationships with men who think it's ok to use me is a reoccurring thing, there for I'm always starting over. What is with men who think it's ok to claim to love you, then ignore you?

    tay kaplan

    People are gross

  13. Musa Rahama

    wow we love you sweet love songs singer god bles you

    larry wright

    Hang in there.

  19. VigorousVicious

    Just heard this on the radio maybe for the first time.
    Nice song.

  20. Amanda Rowe

    beautiful song lionel at his best

  21. Brandon Signorino

    It's pretty faithful to the original, but he does put his own spin on it.  Pretty good, but yes, I prefer the original.

  22. jjlicon

    Like the Def Leppard version better, but this is good too

  23. muzi6169

    yah neh its a long road we traveld

  24. Paula Benencio

    BELLISIMO...

  25. Sherna Salmon

    i love you Lionel

  26. brian azel

    You make my Day !

  27. Edilene goncalves

    LIONEL REALLY DEMOLISHES  IN HIS SONGS.

  28. Jarosława Maria Jarmila

    Lionel are my love of very many years! And that's become! wants to listen to your music laugh, cry to love

  29. san juanita gonzalez

  30. irene paquette

    just feel like in the mood  loving and missing  

    Adrian Parsons

    Well executed lionel just love this song.

  31. Mninimandla Ntombela

    Lionel Touches the heart no matter what.

  32. Mikesdailyjukebox

    How do you think Lionel's version compares to Def Leppards?

    Iyke H Ifedilo

    Both versions are lovely but I kinda lean slightly towards the Lionel Richie version probably because I heard it first.

  33. darlaandme47

    It really sucks to have a long way to go. When does the pain go away? It's already been almost 2 years & I don't even feel the slightest bit better. Of course our 20 yr anniversary is coming July 15th. Guess that doesn't help, but I just have to figure out how to move on. Not working, being a housewife for so many years, how do I even start?

  34. Marie M,D

    Def Leppard aussi y l'on faite :P

  35. JabJab

    Thumbz up if you are watching dis vedio in 2012

  36. TheScorps3

    def leppard,s version is soooooo much better its the bomb !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  37. Marie M,D

    qui est le premier a avoir composer cette chanson parce que lionel n'est pas le seul a jouer cette chanson ...

    qui est le créateur de cette chanson?? parce que lionel n'est pas le seul à la jouer

  38. Conceicao Rodrigues

    linda musica esta musica me fais chorar sinto saudades ñ sei de que
    só sei que amo ouvir ela repito varias vezese sempre quero mais

  39. Conceicao Rodrigues

    esta musica me fais chorar me fais lembra momento
    que jamais voltara só o lionel mesmo

  40. Ketchup

    @breannaelliott1 No Michael Jackson was involved with kids! and as he had a ego he thought he could get away with it and he did! Sick eh!

  41. Daniel Gartner

    Lionel is a true visonary. He truly believed in the cause of We are The World when he co-wrote it. And this song just rips you down to your raw emotions if truly listend to. a tear rolled down my face.

  42. golfsmoore

    yes, but German damen are known for their good taste !

  43. peewee3030

    this is nice. go lionel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  44. Woodrow Wingo

    I am a huge Def Lepp fan - Def Lepp unfortantely didnt write this ( Songwriters: Robson, S; Hector, W)

    - It has been the only song that they have done as the original recording release of this song -I do like Lionel's version also.

  45. Woodrow Wingo

    I am a huge Def Lepp fan - Def Lepp unfortantely didnt write this ( Songwriters: Robson, S; Hector, W)

    - It has been the only song that they have done as the original recording release of this song -I do like Lionel's version also.

  46. Melanie Wynn

    I've heard Long Long way to go by Def Leppard which is awesome and I do like Lionel Richie's version of it as well.

  47. Leanne Ball

    never heard def leppard's version n dnt think i need 2 lionel richie is enough 4 me.... a truly beautiful song, anything sung by Lionel richie is always beautiful

  48. Daniel Gartner

    good quality

  49. MRMIdAS2k

    def leppard actually made this in 2002 for the album X

  50. Stefi N

    super, ramane unul din cei mai tari

  51. psuxhgr

    Einfach super! Unfortunately noone seems to remember the lyrics of the songs he hears!!! That's life!

  52. Blaubeerwald1

    Unfortunately, neither Def Leppard nor Lionel Richie made this beautiful song a big hit....

  53. Adrian Stone

    @jinkazamamonkey Def didn't write this at all, it was written by Wayne Hector& Steve Robson. It's the only song on 'X' that isn't credited to the band (but you could argue X was a pop-produced detour anyway). Don't get me wrong I love me some Lepp tho!

  54. Gage

    Nice try but rarely is a cover as good or better than the original....this is just another failed cover in my opinion. You can't take out the guitar in this song! That is what made the song!

  55. Samirah Nabbie

    Me too Nabz..

  56. Naomi San

    i totally agree with acanafrog

  57. Ryan Hudson

    personally. i absolutly love both versions. but lionels has such emotion and power when it comes into the last chors.. and i think that does it for me.

  58. EZmoney3000

    omfg take a grammar class.

  59. Marina Jimenez

    I love him! I 've always have since i was 16. He's the best ever.

  60. ΛΞЯ-

    radio-crap

  61. CMDRFandragon

    Ive only heard the one CD this song is on of him but this and 'just for you' are my fav songs on this CD

  62. Kleintobi13

    jeah I did it, but I think this version is better than the original. But I will write it to the informations... thank you

  63. jinkazama monkey

    Not sure if you know this but Def Lepard wrote this song in 2003, their version is like most originals better, check it out :o) Joe Elliots voice is well suited to it.

  64. Kleintobi13

    jeah, this song is in my favourites :) It's great!

    Sorry for my english, but I'm german^^
