"A Long Time Ago" as written by and David Ford....
Clouds on the moon,
It was a Hollywood sky,
I sat on the wall, 'til your parents drove by,
And I walked to you door,
And remember how you smiled,
Well that was a long time ago.

Your fault or mine,
It's such a tough one to call,
Do you one day look up to see your innocence fall,
From a twelve story window, to the concrete below,
It was all such a long time ago.

Now your path and mine,
They never seem to converge,
And now sat here in god-knows-where with a mouthful of words,
Well they just sound like noises,
If you say them enough,
It was all such a long time ago.

Now was it though?

In some underground saloon,
Where you can always get a drink,
There's a girl by the cigarette machine,
And I think I'll strike up a conversation,
But I wouldn't know how,
Doesn't seem such a good idea now

With the clouds on the moon,
Another Hollywood sky,
It's time I dragged myself home and to wonder just why,
I still think of you know,
Only as you were then,

It was all such a long time ago.

Now was it though?

    General CommentSome dude loves a girl, things have changed. He's living life, he's alright. He sees another girl, he likes her, but it's not quite right.
    It's basically just a really cool whiny Oh-I'm-reminiscing-again-why-can't-things-be-the-way-they-used-to? kinda song. Yup. David Ford is awesome.

    General CommentI agree, voldy...

    This my input though (because it's from a personal experience...)

    Guy meets a girl from another country in another country...
    They hang out. Become real good buds.
    Guy misses girl.
    Guy has to move on.
    Guy tries to move on... and it feels weird.

    Fuck.
