i waited for you winterlong
you seemed to be where i belong
it's all illusion anyway

if things should ever turn out wrong
and all the love we have is gone
it won't be easy
on that day

waiting to follow
through the dream light of your way
is not so easy for me now

after time has passed your way
things we thought of yesterday
come back now
comeback now
whoahohhh

waiting to follow
through the dream light of your way
is not so easy for me now

after time has passed your way
things we thought of yesterday
come back now
comeback now
whoahohhh

i waited for you winterlong
you seemed to be where i belong [repeat both lines 6x in sequence]

    General Commentthis song is bitchen. the neil diampond version was good too but i have to say i liked the pixies version better becasue of the way frank black and kim harmonized there voices while neil diamond sang it alone

    General CommentIt's cool how everyone is mean to one another on here and no one talks about what the song means. It pretty much renders the website useless. If you don't know what the song means, why are you writing anything? If anybody wants to know what it means I recommend checking out the Neil Young version.

    General CommentWhoa, this is a good song to listen to on a snowy day? Winterlong's Neil Young at his Neil Young-best, which is to say melancholy as hell. Great song though, and the Pixies did a good cover.

    General CommentThe pixies outdid Neil Young on this one. I'm sorry but when your as shit hot as the pixies are, you could outcover anybody in your sleep.

    General CommentNever heard the Neil Young version, but can't imagine it being better than Pixies'.

    General CommentMoron. How can you compare something to what you haven't experienced?
    How can someone take another's work and find a greater passion without the experience that brought that song into existence?
    You people are just as stupid as all those Norah Jones fans who like her covers better than the originals or the Mariah Carey fans who like her cover of Def Leppard's "Brining On The Heartbreak" better than the original.

    You ought to go listen to some American Idol!!!

    General CommentUmm, excuse me, but I don't think even Mariah Carey could screw up a song much worse than Def Leppard could, even if it weren't even her song.
