LONG TIME COMING

It’s been a long time coming
like asphalt on a concrete road
you’ve been asking, should we walk, or start running
just to carry, this load.

Is it hell, or highwater,
do we bend, or did we just break,
what is time, when you can’t even slow it,
is it truth, or love that we make

It’s been a long time coming
It’s been a long hard road
It’s been a long time coming
when it’s life, that we bought & sold.
It’s been a long time coming, been a long time,
long time coming

and I’ve been waiting on the high ground,
for these waters to recede,
damn the floodgates, damn the levies of these sages,
the warning voices, we did not heed,

So is this folly now, or wisdom hard earned,
and just who is it, makes the better sense,
when the enemy, turns out to be ourselves
and we are still, sitting on the fence

It’s been a long time coming
It’s been a long hard road
It’s been a long time coming
when it’s life, that we bought & sold.
It’s been a long time coming, been a long time,
long time coming

Is it hell, or highwater,
do we bend, or did we just break,
what is time, when you can’t even slow it,
is it truth, or love that we make

It’s been a long time coming
It’s been a long hard road
It’s been a long time coming
when it’s life, that we bought & sold.
It’s been a long time coming, been a long time,
long time coming

Lyrics & Music By Thom Sequoia

It’s been a long time coming
like asphalt on a concrete road
you’ve been asking, should we walk, or start running
just to carry, this load.

Is it hell, or highwater,
do we bend, or did we just break,
what is time, when you can’t even slow it,
is it truth, or love that we make

It’s been a long time coming
It’s been a long hard road
It’s been a long time coming
when it’s life, that we bought & sold.
It’s been a long time coming, been a long time,
long time coming

and I’ve been waiting on the high ground,
for these waters to recede,
damn the floodgates, damn the levies of these sages,
the warning voices, we did not heed,

So is this folly now, or wisdom hard earned,
and just who is it, makes the better sense,
when the enemy, turns out to be ourselves
and we are still, sitting on the fence

It’s been a long time coming
It’s been a long hard road
It’s been a long time coming
when it’s life, that we bought & sold.
It’s been a long time coming, been a long time,
long time coming

Is it hell, or highwater,
do we bend, or did we just break,
what is time, when you can’t even slow it,
is it truth, or love that we make

It’s been a long time coming
It’s been a long hard road
It’s been a long time coming
when it’s life, that we bought & sold.
It’s been a long time coming, been a long time,
long time coming
