"Been Away So Long" as written by and Dan Brodie....
Been Away So Long- Dan and Leland

Red wine from a paper cup
In an empty house
With door that keeps on closing
My mind is an empty cup
Gonna fill it up
Gonna pour it out to you

And the rain that’s coming down
On the streets of this old town
Ain’t never gonna fall on me again

Well, I hope you don’t think I forgot about you
When I’ve been away so long
And every time I pick up my guitar
I can hear you singing along
I’ve felt half as much a man without you,
I’ve felt half as much alive
It’s taken my whole life to realize
How much I need you.

Pulling out on a dusty train
With the windowpane
Where I write my name
For you to see
Two o’clock on the telephone
And you’re still not home
I just let it ring

I can’t relate to the twists of fate
That changed my plans
I’ve been living someone else’s life
But I discovered who I am
