Long Life (Where Did You Go?)

It's a long life,
This I do believe;
I never thought we'd see the end,
Maybe I was just naïve.

On a cold night,
You can see your breath so clear;
I always thought that we'd be friends,
But friends can disappear.

Time is moving slow,
Where'd you go?
Rain turns into snow,
Where'd you go?

In a dark house,
I tiptoe down the stairs;
Open the door and turn on the light,
Hope I'll see you there.

Been a long time,
Since I heard you call my name;
The sun comes up and I open my eyes,
And the snow turns back to rain.

Time is moving slow,
Where'd you go?
Rain turns into snow,
Where'd you go?

You were long gone,
So far away from here;
All I can say at the end of the day,
Is goodbye to another year.

Time is moving slow,
Where'd you go?
Rain turns into snow,
Where'd you go?

Time is moving slow,
Where'd you go?
Rain turns into snow...

It's a long life,
But I will not despair;
I open the door, turn on the light,
Hope I'll see you there.

The video above features copyrighted scenes from Band Of Brothers - a 2001 ten-part, 11-hour, World War II television miniseries based on the book of the same title written by historian and biographer Stephen E Ambrose. The executive producers were Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks, who had collaborated on the World War II film Saving Private Ryan (1998). The episodes first aired in 2001 on HBO and are still run frequently on various TV networks around the world. The narrative centers on the experiences of Easy Company, 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment assigned to the 101st Airborne Division of the United States Army. The series covers Easy's basic training at Camp Toccoa, Georgia, the American airborne landings in Normandy, Operation Market Garden, the Siege of Bastogne, and on to the end of the war, including the taking of Hitler's mountain retreat, Eagle's Nest. The events portrayed are based on Ambrose's research and recorded interviews with Easy Company veterans. A large amount of literary license was taken with the episodes, with several differences between recorded history and the film version. All of the characters portrayed are based on actual members of Easy Company; some of them can be seen in prerecorded interviews as a prelude to each episode (their identities, however, are not revealed until the close of the finale). The title for the book and the series comes from a famous St. Crispin's Day Speech delivered by the character of Henry V of England before the Battle of Agincourt in William Shakespeare's Henry V; Act IV, Scene 3. A passage from the speech is quoted on the first page of the book, and is also quoted by Carwood Lipton in the final episode.
