​Long Time Gone

This song is by Last Train Home and appears on the album Last Train Home (1998).

I knew what everyone said
We married too young
But what did they know, and what did we care
The light in your eyes was my lucky star
But that light doesn't shine on me anymore

When I leave I'll be a long time gone
We won't have the time to talk about it later on
When I leave I'll be a long time gone

Little lies accumulate, they fill up space
Where my heart used to be
I remember promises of days to come
Now they're a fading memory
Not so long ago I believed in you

When I leave I'll be a long time gone
Funny how I used to think we'd always get along
When I leave I'll be a long time gone

There's a train every other hour
And buses all the time
By morning I could be 500 miles away
But that's just a distance of a different kind
So if something's on your mind, you'd better say it this time

When I leave I'll be a long time gone
We won't have the time to talk about it later on
When I leave I'll be a long time gone
