"It's Been a Long Time" as written by and Steven Van Zandt....
We lived in a time and a world of our own
Makin' up the rules as we went along
Just one coat between us and we never felt cold
We were never gonna get old

Playing cards 'til the sun came up, rollin' dice
Down in the club and listen to the blues all night
Girls, out on the corner got lonely now and then
We'd never be that free again

It's been a long time since we've laughed together
It's been a long time since we've cried
Raise your glass for the comrades we've lost
My friend it's been a long, long time

Workin' just enough, girl, to pay the rent
Money got made, baby, money got spent
Sleepin' when we had nothin' left to do
Under the boardwalk and up on the roof

We never quite fit, baby, we never played the game
Came out explodin' like a runaway train
Up all night talkin' about dreams of better days
Ain't it funny how some things don't change?

It's been a long time since we've laughed together
It's been a long time since we've cried
Raise your glass for the comrades we've lost
My friend it's been a long, long time

We lived in a time and a world of our own
Makin' up the rules as we went along
Just one coat between us and we never felt cold
Oh, we were never gonna get old

It's been a long time since we've laughed together
It's been a long time since we've cried
Raise your glass for the comrades we've lost
My friend it's been a long, long time, long time

It's been a long time since we've laughed together
It's been a long time since we've cried, cried
Raise your glass for the comrades we've lost
My friend it's been a long, long time

It's been a long, long time, long time
Oh yesterday, raise your glass, baby
Ah, yeah, it's been a long, long, long time
Come on, come on, raise your glass, now

I'm in love since so long, since so long
Since so long, long time
Raise your glass now
Come on, baby
