about

I wrote this track around the same time I was recording a version of Dylan's "Ballad of a Thin Man" (Mr. Jones) and really liked the rhyme scheme and flow, so I patterned this song after that. It's mostly just a "thought-flow" of lyrics, but there's some truth hiding in there too. However you interpret it is fine with me!

lyrics

So Long

Hey hey yeah yeah yeah

Well you stumble to the table, and you get yourself a drink
Then you shuffle across the floor, just trying to get back to the sink
So you can spit out all the turmoil that has filled up to the brink
And you wonder why it took so long...
You wonder why it took so long...

While you wander toward the backroom to find out the latest score
Put your glasses in your pocket cause you don't need to see no more
And you put on your best blinders as you make your way to the door
And you wonder why it took so long...

Well the maid she came home early, found you and your wife making love
She didn't say a word, she just put on her cleaning glove
And the dove of St. Michael hovered up above
And you wondered why it took so long...

Well the picture's in the doorway, and the window's on the wall
And the folded chairs all stacked up next to the broken parasol
And you think back to that time in the mall in Montreal
And you wonder why it took so long...
