Long Time Running Lyrics
Long, long when I'm gone?
Who you talking to?
Is she telling you I'm the one?
It's a grave mistake
And I'm wide awake
Drive in's rained out
Weatherman wet fingers the sky
He pokes it out, he pulls it...

I believe this song is about someone young having a child in secret and not telling the father. a friend of both of them knows and is torn between telling the father and waiting for the eventual meeting between father and child....this is the friends song to both the parents.

I believe this speaks on history. Likely as with everyone there were dark times endured with
having to live through a break in relationships in some points in his life. I feel like he had a core feeling long ago he had a path he was meant to follow. Part of path with his huge heart we could see was to help bring ppl together( through music ). In all respects the song is looking so strong to become one of Canada’s treasured love songs about perseverance of various aspects of life in sickness as well as love and or success. And a heartfelt turned gently into a eulogy as well that’s sang with such perfect emotion you can feel the pain exhaustion as well accomplished goal - happy with how you lived out your life.
