about

This month's song is dedicated to all you music warriors. You know who you are.

lyrics

High schools and bars
Late nights and sunrises fade
Forgot all the words
Remember the feelings they made

My how a life makes a noise
Suddenly men are relieving the boys

It’s been a long, long time
Since we did that show
A long, long time ago
We played all the songs that everyone knows
A long, long time ago
A long, long time ago
Yeah

Miles become years
Friends become lovers again
Leaders recede until
Losers are starting to win

Lines dig in, faces transform
My raincoat falls down as we welcome the storm

It’s been a long, long time
Since we did that show
A long, long time ago
We played all the songs that everyone knows
A long, long time ago
A long, long time ago
Yeah

My how a life makes a noise
Suddenly men are relieving the boys

It’s been a long, long time
Since we did that show
A long, long time ago
We played all the songs that everyone knows
A long, long time ago
A long, long time ago
It’s been a long, long time ago
