How Long Has It Been?

As I sit here thinking about the age
I’ve been thinking about your face
It’s impossible to resist
It’s impossible to refrain
I’ve been thinking about it as though nothing’s changed
How long has it been babe?

I’ve been thinking about why
You never come on by
I know I made you hurt
I know I was unkind
I know I said I’d never make you cry
Honey, I’m a liar
How long has it been babe?

Closeness made us feel contagiously alone
Routine made us miss the spacious comforts of being home
How long has it been since we spoke?
How long has it been babe?
