Melissa Ferrick – It's Been A Long Time lyrics

Long, Long Time

It's been a long, long time
Since I opened a window
Next to my bed
Since I spent the whole day
Just feelin' the sun shift on my head
Since I've dug my feet in
Into the edge of this continent
It's been a long, long time
It's been a long time
Home is not just where I am anymore
I know how to get there
It's where I wanna be
It's where the river (just) kisses the ocean
Where I feel small
I feel blessed
And I feel like me
It's been a long, long time
Cause I can't remember
When all this runnin' started
But it took about 8 years
For something in me to slip
See I gave all I could give
But then I just kept givin'
So I woke up one day to find
My body had up and left
My body, she up and left
Been a long, long time
It's been a long time
Home is not just where I am anymore
I know how to get there
It's where I wanna be
It's where the river (just) kisses the ocean
Where I feel small
I feel blessed
And I feel like me
Been a long, long time
It's been a long time
Cause I ain't no good to you sober
If I just medicate my life
So I'm askin' for some help here
Would you help me get level
Help me to get right
Help me to get right
Long, long, long time
Been a long, long time
It's been a long time
