‘Long Time Gone’.
Words and Music by Thom Carter. Copyright Verlaine Records 2010. All Rights Reserved.

It’s been a long time to be leaving,
It’s been a long time to be gone,
It’s been a long time to be leaving,
But you gotta go, sometimes,
You gotta go,

Yeah, you gotta go, sometimes,
You gotta go,

I got my truth, I ain’t got no money,
Could walk a long, long way to you,
And I seen so many faces,
But I can’t see another like you,
No I can’t see another like you.

Time will only make you lonely,
Lonely as the wind that blows,
Lonely as the sight of roses,
Laid out on top of graves,
Of people that I’ve known,

So if you’re travelling back through Hastings,
If you’re driving down the London Road,
Then be sure to look me up,
If I’m still living here,
It would be good, now,
To hear from you,

It would be good, now
To hear from you.


To hear from you,
To hear from you,
To hear from you,
To hear from you.


Well she came in from the city street,
With the city wind in her hair,
And she knocked for him at the wrong door,
But he knew she was there,

And he heard her laughing,
Like she’d placed a bet,
She put her hand in her short blonde hair,
And she rolled a cigarette,

And I said hey, what’s going on?
Hey where you been so long?

So she poured herself a coffee and she pulled up a chair,
And told me she’d been moving around,
From the tip of Lake Ullswater to the bright Norfolk air,
And then back to dirty St Leonard’s town,

I couldn’t believe she was sitting right there,
Her hands all telling stories to me,
And every mark and every line upon her skin and her face,
Was looking just how I remember it being,

And I said hey, what’s going on?
Hey, where you been so long?
Hey, what’s going on?
Hey, you’ve been a long time gone.

Hey, you’ve been a long time gone.
