Most love songs celebrate new love. This is a love song with a bit of a difference...it celebrates the longstanding love of two people who have "gone the distance". A celebration and recognition of the work and effort it takes for a couple to keep their love alive for a lifetime. Driven by an orchestra.

Lyrics

Vintage Linkage (Going The Distance)

Middle aged and grey
On our faces you see life etched in wrinkles
Crow’s feet round the eyes
Not a waft of hair left on my temples

All the kids are now grown
All the fledglings have flown the nest and gone
Now it’s just you and me, we
We can do as we please
The world is at our feet

Oh-ho, Hallelujah!
I’m in love!
All these years with you and still
I’m in love
Oh-ho, Hallelujah!
I’m in love!
I thank God above for you and all we’ve got

Older, for sure
And hopefully, a little bit wiser
The things you learn
From all those years of teaming together

A little compromise
Why?
You learn to see things anew through each other’s eyes
It may take a while, but
In time you become the
Staunchest allies

Oh-ho, Hallelujah!
I’m in love!
All these years with you and still
I’m in love
Oh-ho, Hallelujah!
I’m in love!
I thank God above for you and your love

The thing about getting older is that
You’re calmer and wiser
And better for it
You make peace with who you are
And are grateful that you have made it this far

Oh-ho, Hallelujah!
I’m in love!
All these years with you and still
I’m in love
Oh-ho, Hallelujah!
I’m in love!
I thank God above for you and all we’ve got

I’m in love, love, love
I’m in love, in love
In love, love, love
I’m in love, in love
In love, love, love
I’m in love, in love
In love, love, love
With you
