Walking down the main street
Of the town where I was born
Looking at these things I've seen
So many times before
I take a deep breath, smile
And kick a stone along the ground
Been so long, since I've been around

There's comfort in the way
That everything still looks the same
People that I bump into
They call me by my name
It almost feels as though
I never even left this town
Been so long, since I've been around

My girlfriend lived on Hawdon Street
Man was she a sight
Sometimes I would sneak
Into her bedroom late at night
Now she's not there
I'm told her family
Long since left the town
Been so long, since I've been around

Yeah many of my friends found
Some other place they'd rather be
But I still know of one good mate,
She gonna keep me company
I think I'm gonna call her up,
We'll go and paint the town
Been so long, since I've been around

I stopped on by her place,
Years ago I knew her well
Let's go drink to old times
At the Adelaide Hotel
She said it's twenty years now
Since they shut that old pub down
Been so long, since I've been around

Yeah but the hospital's still standing,
Down over by the river shore
That's the place where I took my
First breath, so many years before
I take a deep breath now and feel
My chest begin to pound
Been so long, since I've been around

Now I'm lying by the river
Feeling lazy in the shade
Children shout and splash about
In water where I played
And I'm thinking I could stay a while,
Maybe settle down
Been so long, since I've been around
