The Long Run Lyrics

I used to hurry a lot, I used to worry a lot
I used to stay out till the break of day
Oh, that didn't get it, it was high time I quit it
I just couldn't carry on that way

Oh, I did some damage
I know it's true
Didn't know I was so...

    Stairway to Heaven -Led Zeppelin (Yes there are two roads you can go by but in "The Long Run" there's still time to change the road you're on). The songs only make sense if you figure out how they are connected. But you have to do more than just word matching and I still don't get it.

    Quite simply, how one of a couple expects to persevere in love. In the long run.
