Long Time Comin’


Auteur/Compositeur : Bruce Springsteen

Texte chanson

Out where the creek turns shallow and sandy And the moon comes skimmin' away the stars The wind in the mesquite comes rushin' over the hilltops Straight into my arms Straight into my arms I'm riding hard carryin' a catch of roses And a fresh map that I made Tonight I'm gonna get birth naked and bury my old soul And dance on its grave And dance on its grave It's been a long time comin', my dear It's been a long time comin' but now it's here Well my daddy he was just a stranger Lived in a hotel downtown When I was a kid he was just somebody Somebody I'd see around Somebody I'd see around Now down below and pullin' on my shirt I got some kids of my own Well if I had one wish in this god forsaken world, kids It'd be that your mistakes would be your own Yea your sins would be your own It's been a long time comin', my dear It's been a long time comin' but now it's here Out 'neath the arms of Cassiopeia Where the sword of Orion sweeps It's me and you, Rosie, cracklin' like crossed wires And you breathin' in your sleep You breathin' in your sleep Well there's just a spark of campfire burning Two kids in a sleeping bag beside I Reach 'neath your shirt, lay my hands across your belly And feel another one kickin' inside I ain't gonna fuck it up this time It's been a long time comin', my dear It's been a long time comin' but now it's here It's been a long time comin', my dear It's been a long time comin' but now it's here
