I guess you think you broke my heart,
But I don't mind that we're apart;
As sure as there's another dawn,
You can bet that I will be a long time gone.

For every time you lied to me,
I told myself that this can't be;
I know I was completely wrong,
You can bet that I will be a long time gone.

My mind's been on you day and night,
But now I finally saw the light;
I'm gonna tell you now so long,
You can bet that I will be a long time gone.

Today I saw a mourning dove,
And he was searching for his love;
I'm sorry that he's all alone,
But for me I'm glad I'll be a long time gone.
But for me I'm glad I'll be a long time gone.
