Kingston Trio – When You've Been Away For A Long Time lyrics

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.
