Peter Hammill – Been Alone So Long lyrics

Been alone so long
That I've forgotten what it's like
To feel somebody next to me
And hear her breathing peacefully
When I wake up at night.
Been alone so long
That I've forgotten what to say--
If I meet somebody who
Might easily resemble you
I smile, but look away...
I look away.
Been alone so long
That I've forgotten what to do:
How to make the whole thing right
And how to help if she's uptight
And when to run and when to fight...
How to make her stay the night--
That's if I ever knew.
Been alone so long
That I've forgotten what it's like
To feel somebody next to me
And hear her breathing peacefully
When I wake up at night
Wake up at night
