Walking down the Main Street of the town where I was born
Looking at these things i've seen so many times before
Take a deep breath, smile, kick a stone along the ground
Been so long since i've been around

There's comfort in the way that everything still looks the same
People that I bump into, they call me by my name
It almost feels as though i never left this town
Been so long since i've been around

And my girlfriend she lived on Hawdon Street and man was she a sight
Sometimes I would sneak into her bedroom late at night
Now she's not there and i'm told her family long since left that town
Been so long since i've been around

Yeah many of my friends found some other place they'd rather be
But I still know one good mate, she gonna keep me company
I think i'm gonna call her up, go and paint the town
Been so long since i've been around

I stopped on by her place, years ago I knew her well
Said lets go drink to old times at the Adelaide Hotel
She said its 20 years now since they shut that old Pub down
Been so long since i've been around

They've got the hospital still standing down over by the river shore
That's the place where I took my first breath so many years before
I take a deep breath now and feel my chest begin to pound
Been so long since I've been around

And now i'm lying by the river feeling lazy in the shade
And children splash and shout about in water where I played
And i'm thinking I could stay a while or maybe settle down
Been so long since i've been around
