John Foxx lyrics

A Long Time

Original and similar lyrics
Lost again in shades of green Seasons changing under me Seems like I forgot to steer Close my eyes, I know it's been a long time Such a long time Silence in your silver passing Glinting in the bliss of laughing Shafts of someone slowly glancing Down on me, I know it's been a long time Look in the mirror Well I know it's clear To get me to the hollow Well I haven't been here for such a long time For such a long time Such a long time How's she been? The place is just the same ??? but to me it all seems like a life time Such a long time Passing in your quiet way Silent in the silent day Moving as you move away Wherever you go I wish you fell It's been a long time Smiling in the hazy blaze As the focus starts to change Watch the room begin to sway Just beside me someone's says It's a long time Such a long time

When You've Been Away For A Long Time

Kingston Trio "Children in the Morning"
John Stewart When you've been away from the color of the sky, when you've been away for a long time You will see it true. It's a different shade of blue when you've been away for a long time. When you've been away from the music in your heart, when you've been away for a long time. The songs come back again like an old familiar friend when you've been away for a long time. I can hear. I can see. I can feel. I am free and I've been away for a long time. When you've been away from the loving in your soul, when you've been away for a long time. I hear it's like a rain that washes all your pain when you've been away for a long time. When you've been away from someone you once knew, when you've been away for a long time. If you find it true that someone was just you, then you've been away for a long time. I can hear. I can see. I can feel. I am free And I've been away, I've been away, I've been away for a long time.

Something In The Way She Moves

AMERICA "Back Pages"
Something in the way she moves, or looks my way, or calls my name that seems to leave this troubled world behind. And if I'm feeling down and blue or troubled by some foolish game, she always seems to make me change my mind.. And I feel fine anytime she's around me now, she's around me now almost about all the time. And if I'm well you can tell she's been with me now. She's been with me now quite a long, long time and I feel fine. Every now and then the things I lean on lose their meaning and I find myself careening in places where I should not let me go. She has the power to go where no one else can find me and to silently remind me of the happiness and the good times that I know, and then I just got to go then. It isn't what she's got to say but how she thinks and where she's been. To me, the words are nice, the way they sound. I like to hear them best that way, it doesn't much matter what they mean. she says them mostly just to calm me down And I feel fine anytime she's around me now, she's around me now almost about all the time. And if I'm well you can tell she's been with me now. She's been with me now quite a long, long time and I feel fine.

1000 Yard Stare

Double Drive
The hidden - undiscovered, It was the last stone to be turned, A needle scratched the surface, I don't know where it's gonna go. I don't care, Gotta lose myself to get somewhere, But if i'm gone too long then I might be a victim of that superstar 1000 yard stare. (Cover my eyes and move, and we're still coming clear) Well I have no direction, No talking it out, So what if I'm dead and shooting when I hear the sound? Looming far from home... light years... I'm deep in the stare and it comes back, I never had the strength to let it go... And it's taken some time... taken some time. I figure I may never come back, until I have a faith so long and sure... And's it's taking some time.... taking some time. There ain't nobody gonna wait too long, There ain't nobody gonna wait .... So long, so long, so long. I don't care, Gotta loose myself to get somewhere, But if I'm gone too long then I might be a victim of that superstar 1000 yard stare... (Cover my eyes) I wish they'd know... (I don't care what's going on...) I wish they'd know... (Yeah the same thing's going on...)

I Thought You'd Never Ask

JOHN RICH "Son Of A Preacher Man"
Well she's been ther right beside me Through the ups and downs and all the in-betweens No I couldn't live without her But I've never let her see that side of me Well I finally bought that diamond I found the right timin' with a breakin' voice I fell down on my knees And she said, "Hey boy I thought you'd never ask I've been lovin' on you since a long, long time ago And I can't believe you held out on my, letting all this time slip past" And she said, "yes and I thought you'd never ask." Well we both started crying as we saw our future coming into view We saw a home and a family and all the things that come with love that's true And as we stood there shaking talking about the life we'd be making She took my hand and looking in the eyes And she said, "Hey boy I thought you'd never ask I've been lovin' on you since a long, long time ago And I can't believe you held out on my, letting all this time slip past" And she said, "yes and I thought you'd never ask." She said, "I wondered if I'd see the day When you'd finally give your heart away And we wind up in this perfect place" And she said, "Hey boy I thought you'd never ask I've been lovin' on you since a long, long time ago And I can't believe you held out on my, letting all this time slip past" And she said, "yes and I thought you'd never ask." And she said, "yes, and I thought you'd never Boy I thought you'd never ask."

Become You

INDIGO GIRLS "Become You"
I heard you sing a rebel song Sung it loud and all alone We can't afford the things you say We can't afford the warranty Well I see you walking in the glare Down the county road we share Our southern blood my heresy Damn that old confederacy It took a long time to become the thing I am to you And you won't tear it apart Without a fight Without a heart I'm sorry for what you've learned (learned) When you feel the tables turned To run so hard in your race (race) Now you found who set the pace The landed aristocracy Exploiting all your enmity All your daddy's fought in vain Leave you with the mark of cain It took a long time to become the thing I am to you and you won't tear it apart Without a fight Without a heart It took a long time to become you Become you The center holds so they say (It never held too well for me) It never held too well for me (The center holds so they say) I won't stop short of common ground (That vilifies the trodden down) That vilifies the trodden down (I won't stop) The center held the bonded slave For the sake of industry (ah) The center held the bloody hand of the execution man (ah) It took a long time to become the thing I am to you and you won't tear it apart Without a fight Without a heart It took a long time to become you Become you It took a long time to become you Become you
