Rocket Summer – Gone Too Long lyrics

Deja vu tripped you in your strut
Nostalgic dreams can mess you up
A bitter cold sense of warmth
Vague familiar ghost
Fly in circles 'round your head
Bringing back your heart up from the dead
I tend to forget, I tend to forget yeah, yeah, yeah

Wish I could say knew I was wrong
I've been gone for way too long
(I've been gone for way too long)
I've been gone for way too long
Write to myself a prodigal song
I've been gone for way too long
(I've been gone for way too long)
I've been gone for way too long

Away from yourself, you strayed too far
Memories trapped in VCRs
The taste of light in words you write are brief escapes
Somehow got lost somewhere I did
Such innocence when we were kids
I tend to forget, I tend to forget yeah, yeah, yeah

Wish I could say knew I was wrong
I've been gone for way too long
(I've been gone for way too long)
I've been gone for way too long
Write to myself a prodigal song
I've been gone for way too long
(I've been gone for way too long)
I've been gone for way too long

High and low
I imagine inside of my soul
Hidden in a basement hangs a rose
Pastel painted picture

Wish I could say knew I was wrong
I've been gone for way too long
(I've been gone for way too long)
I've been gone for way too long
Write to myself a prodigal song
I've been gone for way too long
(I've been gone for way too long)
I've been gone for way too long, yeah!
