Been Away

By Jimmy Rankin & Steven MacDougall

Well I went to a fight and a dance broke out
Kissed your lips when the lights went down
People got crazy when the band played rock n roll

Our holy ground was a parking lot
When it got too loud
Somebody’d called the cops
When they pulled up they’d never find a single soul

Been away, been away, been away way too long
Been away, been away, been away way too long
Sure miss this place
Feels so good, feels so good, feels so good to be home

We’d all pile into Danny’s old car
Like a groove in a record we never got far
Just around and around and around across the river again
Leave a bon fire smouldering by the shore
Not a single lock on a single door
It wouldn’t be nothing to walk home in the pouring rain

Been away, been away, been away way too long
Been away, been away, been away way too long
Sure miss this place
Feels so good, feels so good, feels so good to be home

Everybody said you can’t stay here
Grass is always greener in the rearview mirror
But I’m coming home

Been away, been away, been away way too long
Been away, been away, been away way too long
Been away, been away, been away way too long
Been away, been away, been away way too long
Sure miss this place
Feels so good, feels so good, feels so good, feels so good, feels so good,
feels so good to be home
