A Long Time Ago (Golden Smog)

I remember when mom and dad named you Claire
Before you were born, before you had hair
You don't remember but I was there

I remember when you broke your arm
Now how you tell it, you get it all wrong
I loved you then and from now on
It was a long time ago
That was a long time ago

I remember when mom and dad brought you home
I was so used to being alone
And then I wasn't alone

There must be some reason for flesh and blood
Some other purpose for staying in touch
Always share so much

I remember when mom and dad named you Claire
Before you were born, before you had hair
You don't remember but I was there
It was a long time ago
That was a long time ago
That was a long time ago

written by Jeff Tweedy and Gary Louris (appears on Golden Smog album Another Fine Day)
