Songtekst

I left my home in the wide north country,
turned my back on the nine to five.
I said goodbye to child horizons,
I must have made enough to stay alive.
You and I were friends from way back,
just drinking cognac through the dawn.
Putting right the wrongs in the laughter and the songs
that said all we knew, all we believed in

and you know
it took a long time, took a long time, just to know ya
took a long time, took a long time in the end
took a long time, took a long time just to know ya
to know my friend

Now broken rocks don't make no highway
and fallen stars don't mend no sky.
She is lying here beside me,
don't ever really have to ask a reason why.
And you and I we should not worry,
for all things they say will find a way.
Who knows where it ends where the road winds where it bends
God knows, it might just roll on forever.

And you know,it took a long time, took a long time, just to know ya
took a long time, took a long time in the end
Took a long time, took a long time just to know ya,
to know my friend

And you know,it took a long time, took a long time, just to know ya
took a long time, took a long time in the end
Took a long time, took a long time just to know ya,
to know my friend

I feel the wind that shakes the barley
I've seen the writing on the wall
Just when it seemed I got to know yaI never knew you at all
