Daniel Lavoie

So long

With a mighty roar it lifts off the tarmac and leaves a world behind
She never thought he'd go, but now he's gone
And she tries to remember his face his hands, kisses in the rain
But the pictures fading fast and whoops it's gone
So long so long so long

Well they cleaned their guns and they went off to fight
And that's how the West was won
Setting fire to tepees in the sun
If you're ready to die for what you believe you can believe most anything
But I'd rather face the future than a gun
So long so long

Well he's lying in a foxhole with her picture on his heart
Dreaming of making love in the morning sun
A house on a hill, two lovely kids, he didn't hear the bullet come
It clipped him from world and now he's gone
