Gin Blossoms

Gin Blossoms are an American pop rock band formed in 1987 in Tempe, Arizona. They broke out with the song "Hey Jealousy" from their successful major label debut, New Miserable Experience (1992), but this achievement was coupled with the firing and eventual suicide of the song's author and band co-founder Doug Hopkins, prompting the title of their followup album, Congratulations I'm Sorry (1996). After a series of charting singles, the band broke up in 1997. After they reunited in 2002 they released a fourth album, Major Lodge Victory, in 2006, and their fifth, No Chocolate Cake, in 2010. more »

I didn't ask for this, 
I couldn't ask for that, 
I wouldn't ask for any change in plans. 
Am I ever right? 
When you're such a brat, 
I feel much better in your hands. 

Try to take your word, 
I want to take you down, 
You never caught me lying. 
I'm trying not to shout, 
Wanna work it out, 
I've been so long denying. 

I'm a long time gone, 
Keeping your secrets for too long, 
Baby you ain't half of what you used to be.
In this dim October sky, 
I've got no more tears left to cry, 
And I'm finally learning, 
You can't be too strong. 

I'm a long time gone. 

When you understand, 
There's no one truth, 
And we're three-thousand miles apart. 
Try and act your age, 
And you're a flaming youth, 
You seek the end, 
But never start. 

If I'm a man, 
Do I have the strength, 
To change what I'm becoming? 
I've been such a fool, 
Didn't want to lose, 
It's been a long time coming. 


I'm a long time gone, 
I'm a long time gone. 


I'm a long time gone, 
I'm a long time gone, 
I'm a long time gone, 
I'm a long time gone.

I'm a long time gone, 
I'm a long time gone, 
I'm a long time gone, 
I'm a long time gone.
