a long long long time ago lyrics – proclaimers

Loading...

yesterday arrived too quickly
caught me right off guard
my defence moved in too slowly
missed it by a yard
i’d just settled down
with a bottle of gin
so i moved on to whiskey
and it hit me again
memories were raining punches
down on my head
knocked me into the past so quickly
they almost raised the dead
so i drank some more booze
and it helped me to sleep
where i dreamed of my youth
and the secrets i keep

oh history is a friend of mine
she comes over to my place
and we have a good time
but the memories
she sometimes brings with her
get out of line
they’re out of line

show me things i don’t want to see
(wanna see, wanna see, wanne see)
remind me of who i thought i was gonna be
(ganna be, gonna be, gonna be)
take me places i used to go
(used to go, used to go)
a long long time ago

when i woke i remembered nothing
suppose that’s just as well
and although my head was aching
i could hear a bell
so i put on some clothes
and i reached my front door
when i pulled it wide open
she joined me once more

oh history is a friend of mine
she comes over to my place
and we have a good time
but the memories
she sometimes brings with her
get out of line
they’re out of line

show me things i don’t want to see
(wanna see, wanna see, wanna see)
remind me of who i thought i was gonna be
(ganna be, gonna be, gonna be)
take me places i used to go
(used to go, used to go)
a long long time ago
a long long time ago
