Whitlams – Been Away Too Long lyrics

Everything looks strange to me like a recurring dream
I think I know what's coming, til it turns out wrong
I've been away, away too long
I can't change where I've been the bad I've done and seen
But my heart has a home and it got here on it's own
I've been away, away too long

Been away too long
Through a doorway in the night towards the sound of cheering
I'll be gone at a minute to 12
You don't want to have to see me turn into myself
I've been away too long
There's a warmth that I miss familiar like a kiss
But the girls had no name and the singer no song
I've been away, away too long

When we burn the cane the mice all run
When the cane is burnt the mice all run
When the fire burnt out I came back home
When the cane was burnt I came back home

There's no gate and no wall in my way at all
And if Janis died for my sins even I can start again
I've been away too long
