Long Long Way Lyrics

by Alan Jackson

It happens every time I think about the reasons why
I'm sittin' here alone at night and not with you
Heartache takes control and lets me know just what a fool
I was and how you can't erase the things you do

And sorry just can't mend the broken heart I've handed you
Breaking hearts is what most broken hearts tell you to do

But I'm a long, long way from over you
Don't think I've ever seen so many shades of blue
They say that time will heal, don't know if I ever will
'Cause I'm a long, long way from over you

Now over you just sounds like some lost city
People tell me how to find but somehow I just never do
And maybe it's because I never wanted to at all
Of course now I see that I had the best in you

That clock just runs in circles, days just going by
Memories hold me closer, and no matter how l cry

I'm still a long, long way from over you
Don't think I've ever seen so many shades of blue
They say that time will heal, don't know if I ever will
'Cause I'm a long, long way from over you

That clock just runs in circles, days just going by
Memories hold me closer, and no matter how l cry

I'm still a long, long way from over you
Don't think I've ever seen so many shades of blue
They say that time will heal, don't know if I ever will
'Cause I'm a long, long way from over you

Aww, come on banjo
Aww, how about that mandolin there?
Alright, flat-top
How about a little of that pedal-steel guitar?
Yeah, I think we need a little bass and drums now
Aww, c'mon everybody

They say that time will heal, don't know if I ever will
'Cause I'm a long, long way from over you
