Lyrics to song: “Long Time Coming” by Thom Sequoia

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

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

Time Out Of Mind

The last 2 weeks I have written or started 5 new songs. Didn’t do it on purpose – just doing the sit down, play around with alternate tunings, and flow of creativity kind of thing.

Here’s the lyrics to a new song I wrote in the last few days. It’s kind of a Pop Rockish power ballad. This is after the first edit. Will probably do a 2nd edit to tighten up the assonance and lyrical meter – as some consonants and vowels seem in sync, but when sung don’t always flow as good as they might, etc.

Time Out Of Mind

Like a secret Joan of Arc
pulling daggers from the start
skipped the head went to the heart
catching souls on fire

If I was Michael Angelo
painting Sistines in my show
the anatomy of how this goes
would leave the crowd awe …

inspired , desired, tired
of taking no for
an answer, romancer, chancer,
the muse is here
upon you
don’t let it pawn you

When the world is running out of time
and everyone is stumbling half blind
someday you’ll wake up and you’ll find
this love was, time out of mind

If you’re still seeking for a sign
the answer to the grand design,
someday you’ll wake up and you’ll find
this love was, time out of mind

time out of mind

Cosmic light across the room,
a billion years that came too soon,
and like them I would crash into,
you to find my future

But now the futures looking bright
Because I am here with you tonight
And I’ll put up a good fight,
just to tell you that I feel…

inspired , desired, tired
of taking no for
an answer, romancer, chancer,
the muse is here
upon you
don’t let it pawn you

When the world is running out of time
and everyone is stumbling half blind
someday you’ll wake up and you’ll find
this love was, time out of mind

If you’re still seeking for a sign
the answer to the grand design,
someday you’ll wake up and you’ll find
this love was, time out of mind
time out of mind
