Long Lost

Aren’t you the long lost love of my life
Come to take me all away from my pain and strife
I looked for you in the town and the country too
The world is such a big lonely place and I never ever thought
I’d ever see your face again, is it a dream or is it really you?

[Chorus]
Aren’t you the long lost, aren’t you the long lost
Excuse me but aren’t you the long lost love of my life?

Isn’t it you walked over the mountain
took off all your clothes and swam in the fountain
kissed all the boys and stole their hearts away?
I heard that you went all the way to Tibet
did a monk teach you something that you’ll never forget
did you find out what it was that you were looking for?

[Chorus]
Aren’t you the long lost, aren’t you the long lost
Excuse me but aren’t you the long lost love of my life?

Does the cold cold dread still eat you inside
do you still tell yourself that you got nothing to hide
every time I turn a corner think I see your face
Maybe Albertinia
How can you deny that we had a little fun
I read you poems when we lay down in the sun
but you didn’t send a card, you didn’t write
do you remember how I held you when you shivered in the night
You told me you adored me even more than my mom
you said you hoped I didn’t mind if you watch me when I come
and the drugs were nothing, stop it anytime
but I knew it even then that you were going out your mind
I knew that there was no-one in the whole wide world
would make you stick around whether they were boy or girl
fly away again but just before you go
tell me tell me darlin’ there’s one thing I wanna know

[Chorus]
Aren’t you the long lost, aren’t you the long lost
Excuse me but aren’t you the long lost love of my life?
