lyrics

I’ve been long gone
From the stage to the highway to the night grille
and everywhere I went time just stood still
and in every town it all went down the same

I’ve been long gone
And in every dream was the dream that you’d still want me
In every motel room your brown eyes would just haunt me
And in every town I called out your name

I’ve been long gone
Set loose again to chase another payday
Knowing if I could just hold you I’d be okay
Tell me once again that you’re still mine

There was nothing on the highway
there was nothing but the wind
And I couldn’t look ahead
I could just see where I’ve been
From Hartford down to Tampa
Duluth to Malibu
I ran every trick, I told any lie
just to get on home to you

I’ve been long gone
Now I’m standing in the doorway of your front hall
Ain’t this better than a letter or a phone call
Tell me once again that you’re still mine

I’ve been long gone
Unpack my bags and throw away the suitcase
Let me know it’s true, let me just touch your face
Tell me you still love me one more time

I’ve been long gone
And true love always comes as a surprise
Can you see your reflection in my eyes
Tell me you still love me one more time

There was nothing on the highway
there was nothing but the wind
And I couldn’t look ahead
I could just see where I’ve been
From Hartford down to Tampa
Duluth to Malibu
I ran every trick, I told any lie
just to get on home to you

I’ve been long gone
And those nights alone were almost too much to bear
Throw your arms around me and just keep them there
Tell me you still love me one more time
