Lyrics
It’s been a long time
I don’t really know
who you are
no more
It’s been a long time
better just leave it like it is

Once upon a time
we had it all
The best of time
from spring to fall

No-one should tell us what to do
or what to be
or who to see

It’s been a long time

It’s been a long time
It’s been a long time

-------

Some late nights
I catch myself thinking
about you

It’s been a long time
Better just leave it like it is
Because it’s been a too,
a too long time

It’s been a too, a too long time
It’s been a - a long time
It’s been a long time
It’s been a long time

Lovely restrained opening, Thor. Cool song. The guitar work is so tasty and the brass and harp add wonderful texture. Reminded me of mellow Van Morrison (at his best). A very welcome return. Thanks, Peter.

Van the man
Thanks for your nice comment! Yeah, I felt the harp gave a bit of the Van Morrison touch. Nice to hear that you thought so too :-)

I'm with Peter hearing a very cool Van Morrison vibe. Soulful vocals and guitar work. Digging the warm guitar tones.

Guitar tones
I was pretty satisfied with how the guitar tone turned out in this one. Thanks for noticing :-)

I know the feeling Thor!
Lovely old-school (ie real) soul tune. Van the Man feel indeed, with your perfect guitar tones. The B3 sounds very cool also - what sample are you using on the horn part? It sounds very authentic.
Very warm regards from Oz,
Neil

It's good to see your familiar face commenting on my song:-) It's like the old days. Glad to hear you could like this one - and that you too hear an inspiration from Van the man leaking through the lines.

The trumpet is of course authentic, and as Jack points out... it's yours truly playing it :-)

a long time...
hey, friend... there we go... cool intro. Soulful as always. Thor, you got the goods and this tune is just one more testimony. And I am guessing that is you playing the trumpet, eh? Cool.., the blue-eyed soul brother of Norway...

Good to see you around again. I have your collab with Johannes on my list and will drop by your page soon. You share some very kind word my friend. Thanks a lot. PS! Your guess on the trumpet player is a correct one :-)

Hej Thor
Glad to see you! Thank you for the music! Listening to your moody guitar is such a pleasure!

I could not agree anymore when you talk about starting a more active MJ life. As a coincidence, just today it happened that Dadai posted something we made together eight years ago and that made me feel not so little nostalgic. The time at MJ was outstanding.

I hope you to hear more from you!

And if you pass by Göteborg, welcome for a JAM! Just send a note if and when :)

Hilsen
Johannes

Perfection.
You've nailed a simple yet complex emotion in the lyrics that speak volumes in their expression. I am sure there are many who can relate to these words... The musical presentation is so mellow and restrained and so perfectly rendered: the trumpet solo followed by that very tasty guitar bridge are just wonderful, Thor. And the bass is mixed so well into the whole that it's hardly there at all, except that IT IS — an intricate line that that is played with such certainty. Well, I could go on and on...This is such a beautiful song that is performed so well. Thank you for the care you put into writing and producing such a gem.

It's been too long!
We've got to hear more of this, Thor. Great music! Love that harp too.

Sweet
Great sound. You capture an authentic live sound with an classic groove and great vibe. The unexpected harmonic solo was a wonderful touch. But that rounded lead guitar sound could have gone on forever, it was so warm and welcomed. Thanks for sharing this. Looking forward to the more active Thoddi!

By Odin's beard...

..Thor's back! ;) Been too long.. a fine soulful blues number.. perfect tone and the guitar work is (as always) brilliantly done and under-stated. But for me the little touches of trumpet, harp and B4 made this real sweet.
