Dr. Dog – A Long Time Ago Lyrics

Well, I set fire to an apple tree
And I put it back out like a bad memory.
Yeah, I washed my hands in the flood.

Well, I took a sip of the trouble I’ve stirred
And I spit it back out like a four letter word.
Yeah I lost my head in the fight.

Well, I sat up high on the walls we built
And I felt just like a fool on stilts.
But I just can’t get down.

Olives and a pair of eyes
Are floating in my glass.
And nothing ever seemed so strange,
But this I know will pass.

I’ve seen as far as the eye can see.
And I blew my mind in the lottery.
Yeah, I lost my chance.

Well, I’ve been told about the fiery skies.
And I’ve told my fair share of lies,
But I believe in mine.

Well, I’ve known folks as smart as dogs
And I’ve known folks like bumps on logs
And they’re all fine by me.

Blue skies and my share of love
Are somewhere in the past.
And nothing worth anything
Is strong enough to last.

Well, I’ve done my time for the ills I’ve caused
And I’ve paid my dues in the bets I’ve lost
And I’ve got room enough to cry.

Well, I’ve seen out as far as my eyes can see
And I’ve tried my hand at the mystery.
Yeah, I walked in the land of the blind.

Yeah I made my bed in which I lie
And I burned the bridge to the other side.
And I’m standing in the light.
Yeah I’m standing in the light.

[Dr. Dog – A Long Time Ago Lyrics]
