Long Time Gone

This song is by 7 Worlds Collide and appears on the album The Sun Came Out (2009).

It was morning in Brighton
But the fire in the bar didn't give off any heat
The sun crept in unnoticed
Tryin' to find itself a seat

I was explaining and complaining
I had lined up all the facts
You could see where this was heading
You stopped me in my tracks

And you said, you said

We're a long time gone
We're a long time gone
We're a long time gone
And there's work to be done

You said, when you're coming into your town
Flying in over the Pacific
You watch the shadow of the plane
As it glides along the traffic

One day the plane will make
Its shadow on the city's face
But you won't be there to notice
There will be no one sitting in your place

That's what you said
That's what you said

We're a long time gone
We're a long time gone
We're a long time gone
And there's work to be done

In the country of the blind
A one-eyed man is king
You better keep that one-eye peeled
Or you're gonna miss something

You made a point of noticing everything
Every second, every minute
And now it seems insane that the world still spins along
Now you're no longer in it

Whenever I wana to lay down my tools
I hear your voice and I pick them up again
And I will never give in, I will never give in
I will never give in, my friend

'Cause you said, 'cause you said

We're a long time gone
We're a long time gone
We're a long time gone
And there's work to be done
And there's work to be done
