Intro: E, G, Fmaj7 E, G, Fmaj7 E, G, Fmaj7

Verse A

A Em
You set off to follow your dream.
A Em
I didn't think that you'd really go.
A Em
Young, restless, and full of steam.
A Em
You just showed how little I know.

Chorus

E G Fmaj7
It's been a long, long, time.
E G Fmaj7
It's been a long, long, time.
E G Fmaj7
Since I last saw you, why?
E G Fmaj7
Since I last saw you, why?
G6 Fmaj7
Why, oh why?

Verse B

A Em
Dreams often die a slow death.
A Em
Life doles pain to even the best.
A Em
But you know I'm not like the rest.
A Em
No judgment, just come back to the nest.
A Em
No judgment, just come back to the nest.





Chorus

E G Fmaj7
It's been a long, long, time.
E G Fmaj7
It's been a long, long, time.
E G Fmaj7
Since I last saw you, why?
E G Fmaj7
Since I last saw you, why?
G6 Fmaj7
Why, oh why?

Verse C

A Em
The years pass slowly at best.
A Em
Your L.A. life suits you just fine.
A Em
I've moved on, become one of the rest.
A Em
Dreams die hard, just like mine.

Chorus

E G Fmaj7
It's been a long, long, time.

It's been a long, long, time.

Since I last saw you, why?

Since I last saw you, why?
G6 Fmaj7
Why, oh why?
G6 Fmaj7
Why, oh why?

Why, oh why?
