It's been a long time a-comin' and I have to carry on
It's been a long time a-comin' but now you're gone

Oh, look at me sittin', starin' at the rain
Knowin' the days that we once knew won't ever come again
Well it seems to strange to really be
So I pinch myself and I find oh, yeah, it's me

It's been a long time a-comin' and I have to carry on
It's been a long time a-comin' but now you're gone

And it's too late to turn, back all the clocks in town
It's too late to take the X from yesterday
Now the die is cast, nothin' happens in the past
So I'll think I'll take a walk out in the rain

Oh, here I go, walkin' down the street in time
I'm never knowin' though I'm tryin' to keep myself in rhyme
Just a while has now become too long
Consequently to you I can say, goodbye, so long, yeah

It's been a long time a-comin' and I have to carry on
It's been a long time a-comin' but now you've gone, you were gone right

And it's too late to turn, back all the clocks in town
It's too late to take the X from yesterday
Now the die is cast, nothin' happens in the past
So I'll think I'll take a walk out in the rain

Oh, here I go, walkin' down the street in time
Never knowin' though I'm tryin' to keep myself in rhyme
Just a while has now become too long
Consequently to you I can say, goodbye, so long, yeah

It's been a long time a-comin' and I have to carry on
It's been a long time a-comin' but now you're gone
But now you're gone, but now you're gone

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
