long dark road lyrics – hollies

the hollies
long dark road
(tony hicks/kenny lynch)
track 11 (final) on alb*m ‘distant light’ june 1971
and single release in usa 1972

{acoustic guitar intro}

it’s over, well over
in my mind and in my heart.
it’s over, well over,
but then again it didn’t have a good start.

you tell me, try to sell me
it could have been all i asked.
it’s over, well over
it’s there and flows away
a distant past

now it’s a long dark road.
it’s a long dark road.
and you know i loved you.
yes you know i loved you.

{harmonica interlude}

now it’s a long (it’s a long)
dark (very long) road (road, road)
now it’s a long (it’s a long)
dark (very long) road (road, road)
and you know i loved you
yes you know i loved you

it’s over, well over,
and we can’t revive what’s past.
it’s gone now, moved on now,
but then again it didn’t have a chance to last.
no, no, no, a chance to last.

now it’s a long (it’s a long)
dark (very long) road (road, road)
it’s a long (it’s a long)
dark (very long) road (road, road)
and you know i loved you.
yes you know i loved you.
now it’s a long (it’s a long)
dark (very long) road (road, road)
{fade out}
it’s a long (it’s a long)
dark (very long) road (road, road)
now it’s a long…
