It's Been A Long Time

This song is by Melissa Ferrick and appears on the album In The Eyes Of Strangers (2006).

It's been a long time
Since I opened the 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
And it's where I wanna be
It's where the river kisses the ocean
Where I feel small
I feel blessed
And I feel like me

It's been a long, long time
And I can't remember
When all this runnin' started
But it took about eight years
For something in me to slip
I gave all I could give
But then I just kept givin'
'Til I woke up one day to find
My body had up and left
My body, well 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
Where the river kisses the ocean
Where I feel small
I feel blessed
And I feel like me

Been a long, long time
Yeah, it's been a long time
A long, 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
Help me to get level
Would you help me to get right?
Been a long time
It's been a long, long time
It's been a long time
