​Long Ago With Miles Between

This song is by Jimmy LaFave and appears on the album Road Novel (1997).

Baby, sweet baby
Clouds drift 'cross this endless sky
I'm totally alone and I begin to wonder why
Do you remember
When you were only twenty-one
And my heart revolved around you like the earth around the sun

Long ago with miles between
The way things are and the way they seemed
It's easy to look back on my life
The hard part is making the reality feel right

And baby, do you ever wonder
Where did all the love and laughter go?
Could we find it once again?
I don't think we'll ever know

Maybe I'll give you a call sometime
To see how you've been
And you might say "let's get together
Because I could always use a friend"

And do you ever think about
All those times we used to spend
Driving down the highway
Throwing caution to the wind

That was long ago with many miles between
The way things are now and the way they seemed
You know it's easy to look back on your life
The hard part's making the reality feel right

But do you ever think about
All those nights we used to spend
Lost on some dark highway throwing caution to the wind
We were rolling down the road, yeah yeah
With all caution to the wind

Lost on some sad highway
With our caution to the wind
