​Wait So Long

This song is by The Tragically Hip.

I thought it was my duty as an honest man
Raving about my country doing what I can
Luxury I had inside I suppose it was just a stand
She walked me down to the end of the road
She laughed till she cried as she turned to go
She said I'll think of you and you're feeling every night

The vultures sing why'd you want to wait so long?
If you're gone this long well you've got to know he's long gone
You've been building up your fences and memorised dances
Just so you're still strong why'd you want to wait so long?

It seems I've been offered for a life or two
Two things now tell me what I got to do
I've got my old man's eyes and a dusty old picture of you
I don't know how long I've been shouldering my headstone
One more hill and I'll be coming on home
I can feel you down in the marrow of my bones

Well I've been jumping over fences
And running through fresh cut fields of lavender
One more hill and I'll be coming on home
One more hill and I'll be coming on home
Baby please hurry home

I hope I know why you want to wait so long
