It's been such a long, long time
Since we loved each other and our hearts were true
One time for one brief day, I was the man for you
Last night I heard you talkin' in your sleep
Saying things you shouldn't say, oh baby
You just might have to go to jail someday
Is there a place we can go?
Is there anybody we can see?
Maybe it's the same for you as it is for me
I ain't seen my family in twenty years
That ain't easy to understand, they may be dead by now
I lost track of 'em after they lost their land
Shake it up baby, twist and shout
You know what it's all about
What are you doing out there in the sun anyway?
Don't you know the sun can burn your brains right out
My enemy crashed into the dust
Stopped dead in his tracks and he lost his lust
He was run down hard and he broke apart
He died in shame, he had an iron heart
I wear dark glasses to cover my eyes
There are secrets in 'em that I can't disguise
Come back, baby, if I hurt your feelings, I apologize
Two trains running side by side
Forty miles wide, down the Eastern line
You don't have to go, I just came to you because you're a friend of mine
I think that when my back was turned
The whole world behind me burned
It's been a while since we walked down that long, long aisle
We cried on a cold and frosty morn
We cried because our souls were torn
So much for tears, so much for these long and wasted years
