Long Time Running

Does your mother tell you things?
Long, long when I’m gone?
Who you talking to?
Is she telling you I’m the one?
It’s a grave mistake and I’m wide awake.

 

Drive-In’s rained out
Weatherman wet-fingers the sky
He pokes it out, he pulls it in
He don’t know why
It’s the same mistake

It’s been a long time running
It’s been a long time running
It’s well worth the wait

We don’t go anywhere,
Just on trips
We haven’t seen a thing
We still don’t know where it is
It’s a safe mistake

It’s been a long time running
It’s been a long time running

Well, well it’s all the same mistake
Dead to rights and wide awake
I’ll drop a caribou, I’ll tell on you
I’ll tell on you, I’ll tell on you.

You’ve got a boat-load of nerve
But I would say you’ve been told
You work me against my friends
And you’ll get left out in the cold
It’s the same mistake

It’s been a long time running
It’s been a long time coming
It’s been a long, long, long time running
It’s well worth the wait

Thanks to The Tragically Hip for this beautiful song.
Go In Peace, Gord Downie
