"Foreplay/Long Time" as written by and Donald T. Scholz....
It's been such a long time
I think I should be goin', yeah
And time doesn't wait for me, it keeps on rollin'
Sail on, on a distant highway
I've got to keep on chasin' a dream, yeah
I've gotta be on my way
Wish there was something I could say

Well, I'm takin' my time, I'm just movin' 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

Ah 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, yeah
I'm tryin' to forget your name and leave it all behind me
You're comin' back to find me

Well I'm takin' my time, I'm just movin' 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 why our front door, yeah, yeah, yeah

It's been such a long time. it's been such a long time

Yeah
It's been such a long time, I think I should be goin', yeah
And time dosnt wait for me, it keeps on rollin'
There's a long road, I've gotta stay in time with, yeah
I've got to keep on chasin' that dream, though I may never find it
I'm always just behind it

Well I'm takin' my time, I'm just movin' along
(Takin' my time) oh, just movin' along
(Takin' my time) ah, just takin' my time
(Takin' my time) oh, yeah
(Takin' my time) oh, oh
(Takin' my time)
(Takin' my time)
(Takin' my time)
(Takin' my time)
(Takin' my time)

    General CommentOh, and I'd say this song is about someone in the process of moving on from a relationship.

    General CommentIt's hard to believe these songs came out back in 1976. A true gem that will stand the test of time.

    General CommentI absolutely love the transition from Foreplay into Long Time where it's just the keyboard, then the drums start building up, then when it's at the climax, the lead comes in with that epic lick. Unbeatable.

    General CommentIt's interesting that for such a happy summer evening party band, how many of Boston's songs are about death and loss, but phrased in such a positive way.
