Story behind the song
The chord progression and melody for this was written in the late 70s and has taken 30 years for me to get the lyrics together. It's a song about one of those relationships where we had a lot of great things going but just weren't quite right for the long haul. As is the way of things, that meant that despite so much in common, we just went our separate ways. Still think about her sometimes and the good times.
Lyrics
Lonely nights, silent days There’s a glimpse of you now through the bruised black haze And there you are Skipping across the sand Sitting lonely, tired and drained Two steps forward, still nothing gained But there you are Beckoning for my hand I feel the warmth in your expression now And I cry out your name Fractured in the firelight Captive of your deep green eyes I feel a numbness ease the pain Grasping for the highlights Raking over fun filled nights Salvation Carnival Again Chequered memories, smiles and rage Ages passed since we agreed to burn that page But there you are Still etched upon my mind I feel the warmth in your expression now And I cry out your name Chorus Cause it’s been a long time Since I held you in my arms Yes it’s been a long time, I’ve fallen down, down, down Yes it’s been a long time Yes it’s been a long time I’m coming round, round, round, round Solo Chorus
