Long Time Running Submit Correct Lyrics

Does your mother tell you things, long, long when I'm gone?
Who you're talking to? Is she telling you I'm the one?
It's a great mistake and I'm wide awake

Drive-in's rained out, weatherman wet-fingers the sky
He pokes it out, he pulls it in, he don't know why
It's the same mistake

It's been a long time running
It's been a long time coming
It's well worth the wait

We don't go anywhere, just on trips
We haven't seen a thing, we still don't know where it is
It's the same mistake

It's been a long time running
It's been a long time coming
Well, well, it's all the same mistake

Dead to rights and wide awake
I'll drop a caribou
I'll tell on you, I'll tell on you, tell on you

You've got a boat-load o'nerve but I would say you've been told
You work me against my friends and you'll get
You'll get left out in the cold, it's the same mistake

It's been a long time running
It's been a long time coming
It's been a long, long, long time running
It's well worth the wait
It's well worth the wait
It's well worth the wait
It's well worth the wait
