Haven't Seen You In A Long Time
(Great Big Sea)

I haven't seen you in a long time,
since I've been gone,
It always seemed to be the wrong time,
it's the same old song;
Looks like we'll never be together
our whole life through,
There might be changes in the weather
but not for me and you.

Can you hear me when I'm calling out to you?
Can you see me sometimes in the night
when you put out the light?
I haven't seen you in a long time,
since you put me away;
I only see you in my dreamtime
at the break of day.
I know I never ever listen,
my whole life through.
If I had heard your words of wisdom,
I could be with you.

Can you feel me when he's making love to you?
Can you hear me when you're alone,
When you hang up the phone,
When it's real late at night,
and you put out the light!

I still see you and I still feel you,
When I'm alone my mind starts to roam,
You come in the night when I turn out the light.

I haven't seen you in a long time,
since I've been gone,
It always seemed to be the wrong time,
it's the same old song;
Looks like we'll never be together
our whole life through,
There might be changes in the weather
but not for me and you.
