"Long Time" as written by and Tom Scholz....
It's been such a long time,
I think I should be going, yeah
And time doesn't wait for me,
It keeps on rolling.
Sail on,
On a distant highway.
I've got to keep on chasing a dream.
I've gotta be on my way;
Wish there was something I could say.

[Chorus]
Well, I'm taking my time,
I'm just moving on.
You'll forget about me after I've been gone,
And I take what I find,
I don't want no more,
It's just outside of your front door.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
It's been such a long time.
It's been such a long time.

Well, I get so lonely
When I am without you,
But in my mind, deep in my mind,
I can't forget about you.
Good times
And faces that remind me,
I'm trying to forget your name
And leave it all behind me.
You're coming back to find me.

[Chorus]

It's been such a long time,
I think I should be going,
And time doesn't wait for me,
It keeps on rolling.
There's a long road
I've gotta stay in time with.
I've got to keep on chasing that dream,
Though I may never find it,
I'm always just behind it.

[Chorus]

Well, I'm taking my time,
I'm just moving on.
[Repeat]

    General CommentThis is my favorite song by boston. Such great guitar work and singing. It's right up there with Pink Floyd's comfortably numb.

    I'm 18 by the way, lol. Not that it matters, but I only listen to 60's -80's classic rock, and just a little 90's and etc. Classic rock is the best!!

    General CommentThis song is boring from the beginning and every time I hear it I want to turn it off. But after that long break when you hear that beautiful voice saying "Its been such a long time". the song really turns around. Really fun to play on expert on Rockband too! Expert til death baby!
