Trooper – (It's Been A) Long Time lyrics

Don't seem like so long ago
It's a night dream
I said the feeling would grow
For a lifetime
There were blue skies
'Til it started to rain
We were on the right track
But we got hit by the train
Musta been the wrong time
It's been a long time, a long time, a long time
It's been a long time
Why did ya leave
I said it's got to be mine
You didn't believe me
So we cut the line
Let the feeling drift away
It's been a long time
Since you came on to me
I haven't got the time
Why don't you let it be
Cut the lines
Let the feeling drift away
Drift away now darlin'
Still seems like the other day
When you told me
You were going away
There was somethin' wrong
I'm growin' tired of this
New game, baby
Please don't put me through it again
It's been too long
It's been a long time, a long time, a long time
It's been a long time
Why did you leave
I said it's going to be fine
Didn't believe you so we cut the lines
And let the feeling slip away
