It’s Been a Long Long Time

明日からバングラデシュだけど、先月も行ったばかりで「ひさしぶり」感はまったくなし。この曲は第二次世界大戦の終わりとも重なって、当時大ヒットしたという。歌詞は Doris Day の歌をもとにした。

(Verse)

Never thought that you would be standing here so close to me

There’s so much I feel that I should say

But words can wait until some other day

 (Chorus)
Kiss me once, kiss me twice
Then kiss me once again
It's been a long, long time

Haven't felt like this, my dear
Since can't remember when
It's been a long, long time

 

You'll never know how many dreams
I've dreamed about you
Or just how empty they all seemed without you

So kiss me once, kiss me twice
Then kiss me once again
It's been a long, long time


Kiss me once, kiss me twice

Kiss me once again

(It's been a long, long, long, long time)

 

Haven't felt like this, my dear
Since can't remember when

(It's been a long, long, long, long time)

 

You'll never know how many dreams
I've dreamed about you
Or just how empty they all seemed without you

So kiss me once, and kiss me twice
And kiss me once again
It's been a long, long, time
It's been a long, long, time
