Norah Jones - Long Time Gone Lyrics




You cheated me and made me lonely
I tried to be your very own
There'll be a day you'll want me only
But when I leave, I'll be a long time gone
Be a long time gone, be a long time gone
Yes, when I leave, I'll be a long time gone

You're gonna be sad, you're gonna be weepin'
You're gonna be blue and all alone
You'll regret the day you seen me leavin'
Cause when I leave, I'll be a long time gone
Be a long time gone, be a long time gone
Yes, when I leave, I'll be a long time gone

You'll see my face through tears and sorrow
You'll miss the love you called your own
Baby, there'll be no tomorrow
Cause when I leave, I'll be a long time gone
Be a long time gone, be a long time gone
Yes, when I leave, I'll be a long time gone

Be a long time gone, be a long time gone
Yes, when I leave, I'll be a long time gone
Yes, when I leave, I'll be a long time gone

    You cheated me and made me lonely

  9. Bruce Farris

    Thought the Everley Bros. did a good job on this--but this is super--no disrespect to the Everley bros.!!

  10. Von Clohk

    Overall I think Billie Joe has done it all 100% right. I met him in 1993 (right before they took off) and he seemed very precarious and worried about the whole "selling out" thing but he still managed to be nice to a total stranger which was myself. He had really cool dreads that he cut for whatever reason before the "Longview" video. They weren't on Reprise Records yet but they had a 4 song demo they were giving to people. He seemed to lighten up after the show and after he ate his Mac and Cheese. Not to mention they were all getting over being sick. I'll never forget Mike informing us that they could not drink alcohol because they were all on antibiotics...... but Pot was okay. In fact I remember them smoking a lot of pot.

  11. For the Doggies Guitars

    This always brings you back to the one that got away.

  12. Princess Jozzy06

    “When I leave I leave I’ll be long time gone” why does this sound so familiar *Says sarcastically and giggles*

  13. For the Doggies Guitars

    That about does it. So fun!

  14. Iodine Cerium

    Billie Joe at an interview in 1994: I hate country music

    Billie Joe 20 years later: **sings a country music**

    That proves that he is a walking contradiction. He's still great tho

  15. ArkansasBadBoy

    By far my favorite song that these 2 did together, absolutely delightful :)

  16. Travis White

    Through headphones, those keys tickle me brain 😅

  17. Cheyenne Autumn

    I love billie joe Armstrong

  18. Lee Hayden

    What I noticed about your voice Norah, is that , it is so badass, a duet does it shame.

  19. Emmanuel Xtreme

    Im gonna cry

  26. Hunkasaurus Panta

  27. •Sally•

    Bellissima canzone,adoro Norah Jones e Billie joe

  28. Marlefant

    I´m not sure if i like this type of music.....but i definitely love their voices;)

  29. Kat TheFanEnthusiast

    What would be really cool is if Green Day did a collaboration with someone like, maybe, Carrie Underwood or Danielle Bradbery, and merged their punk rock style with country-pop, resulting in some awesome country rock song. It would sound like, maybe Brantley Gilbert, or Avenged Sevenfold's country song, "Dear God", with more of a Green Day sound.

  30. Crazy gamer

    country songs are so boring

  31. Old Cheetohs

    More. please. I could care less what others think. This sounds really good and I'm glad he tried new genres of music.

  32. Teejay Pavitt

    The most unlikely, but the most perfect collaboration. Love this so much

  33. Émilie Poulin

    everly brotherssssssss

  34. Jason Boucher

    The most unlikely duet will always cut down the rest!! Best duet ever.

  35. MegaVstromer

    Nora, to damn hOt for this.....

  36. Fisqal Lubis

    oh my.......................

  37. Dudin Sali

    ,,,how, i mean,, howw the fuck,,,am i hearing this now,,,, where have i been this duo is amazing //: ...am an old green day fan, lost track of them with years, and now this shows, :

  38. Senjiu Kanuba

    It would be interesting to see if the link in fefe's blog changed viewers/day in a significant way or if people stopped clicking his links to music videos. :-)

    pindakaas42

    auf Mehr , dann Statistik dann täglich klicken. ist aber nichts zu sehen bis jetzt ^^

  39. Jane Wang

    You're gonna be blue and all alone ;)

  40. Jorge Medioken

    long time gone friends

  41. Ray Sills

    This album certainly "captures" the Everly sound. Phil and Don would be proud of this cover. It's nice to hear the songs performed with the benefit of today's technology. Great sound.

  42. Warachara Upapong

    Wow this is so beautiful im gonna die

    Rick Laird

    Don't die :)

    oldmusiclover68

    Revel in the beauty of the Everly Brothers harmonies accurately rendered by Billie and Nora!

  43. Paulo Bruno Exequiel Dybala

    green day

  44. eilis evans

    I love this.

  45. Karen Riches

    I LOVE this song

  46. Mike Fraser

    Just an amazing cover, so similar to the brilliant Everlys

  47. Ken Coleman

    Though I love Jones's work regardless, I really enjoy her duets. Wither it be with Bonnie Raitt and Willie Nelson, or with Cyndi Lauper and Billie Joe Armstrong.

  48. Tara Liz Driscoll

    nice to hear Norah's voice doing country

  49. Jello teaa

    Billie should do a cover of earth Angel

  50. Marija Nuzdic

    holy shit i really dislike folk but fuck it Billie Joe i love this

    RastaSaiyaman

    +Mary Clifford This isn't folk music, it's country and the song is a cover of the Everly brothers.

    Marija Nuzdic

    @RastaSaiyaman right,thanks I didn't know this is cover.

  51. James Imthurn

    this sounds great like the 50s and billie joe is trying to bring the 1950s back to this future in time yes indeed

  52. Melissa0774

    I always wanted to hear Billie Joe Armstrong cover an Everly brothers song. I always thought he sounded like them.

  53. Scott Shea

    Love it!

  54. Kora Riegelhuth

    For a second I thought that Billie had a sandwich in his hair 😂😂

    Crystal allen

    hahahah I saw this comment and had to look at the pic like five times hahah true

    h m

  62. Kenneth Boone

    I dedicate this song to all the great people I lost in my life.

  63. blisterpacman

    lol this is terrible

    Nader Rahy

    +blisterpacman its simple. you're a fkn idiot. :D

  64. Floyd Burrell

    I grew up listening to the Everly Brothers. Norah & Billie brought back memories of them. Love their music.

  65. Edgar Pauli

    No one can singing like Don and Phil!
    But Norah and Billie Joe came nearly.
    Fantastic.I´m a Everly Fan, but that´s the finest tribute to theEB

  66. Lucas Tilford

    khalil nidbelkacem

    هههههههههه يلاه العام لي فات شتيهم 

  72. John LaStrada

    Right up there with a respectful Everly Brothers sound. Both artists are incredible on tunes like this. Billie Joe is following in the footsteps of some great artists such as Kid Rock, Darius Rucker and Eddie Vedder who have found great success with other music genres. This is a good career move too -- it proves how good he is with the likes of Norah Jones and his diversity is on target. Maybe this is all sparked by what Robert Plant did with Alison Krauss -- if so, bring it on. This is so good.

    JaneJeffer

    @John LaStrada I totally agree!

  73. Sony Garage

    Good job! I like this a lot.

  74. 7101998GreenDay

    I remember how all GD fans freaked out when this came out. We all thought GD was over, and Billie would begin a solo career. Thank God that didn't turn out to be true and GD is coming back! Anyways, I find this album surprisingly relaxing.

    Valentina C

    THEY ARE BACK IN 2 DAYS😍❤
    THE FEELS

    7101998GreenDay

    @Valentina C THEY ARE BACK! THE FEELS!

    Roxy Cauldwell

    7101998GreenDay lol they all made a vow they would never break up, the fans know that

  75. Colin Crawley

    I love This, And I'm A Everly Bro fan,Never thought i'd say this But its just as good.

  76. shrubhater

    true beauty :-)

  77. 7101998GreenDay

    This is an answer to all those who say Billie's voice isn't good.

    Julio Refly

    He has a good voice, great singer, my inspiration.

    Ayush

    Who said Billie doesn't sound good 😂

    Ayush

    @DamThatRiver85 you have got to be kidding me

    Ayush

    @DamThatRiver85 suck your mom

    Iodine Cerium

    He may not the greatest singer but his voice has a distinct x factor. I remember one time when I first heard 21 Guns on our local radio, I just heard the first words I already knew it was Green Day because of his voice, and I think that makes him stand out

  78. Krzysztof Szajter

    Prawie jak Everly Brothers :D

  79. DylanDaDominator

    the song is great n all but please billie uno dos and tre are getting old come back to green day and hammer out some more songs please!

  80. Mattie Kingori

    Billy can be singing shit on q shingle and I would love it... Because I love him.

  81. NAin AAIsmail

    I wanna hear norah' voice

  82. arnold herwig

    zwei geniale Stimmen....wow

  83. prokristinating

    this is awesome ! these two work great together, kudos to whoever got the idea to ask Nora and BJA to work together, wouldn't think of it in a million years 

  84. David P

    I love Green Day, but I love this as well. I say good for Billie Joe, his voice goes really well with Norah Jones.

  85. Barry Oneal

       This is great!!!

  86. Yellowkid FortyNine

    Never heard of these folks, I just found this looking for the Everly's version, nice job!

  87. Sheena Hill

    Billy Joe came across the Everly Brother's Album, "Songs Our Father Sang", and liked it. He envisioned he and Norah Jones doing this, and here it is! I'm shocked at the number of people who say Green Day was never punk. They were very punk, and have gone on to be a great rock band. Billy Joe's voice is amazing. It shows real cajones to step so far out of his comfort zone. Amazing CD!

    Ballistic Fingerprints

    The album was actually called, "Songs Our Daddy Taught Us" lol.

    Sheena Hill

    Lol, Mea culpa

  88. DerBochumer76

    sounds like the Everly Brothers or Simon&Garfunkel.
    I would not suppose that it is a man & woman singing...

  89. Edward Kenway

    I fail to understand why people are complaining about BJA doing this. If anything you should be happy that he's flaunting his vocal flexibility which has turned out to be gorgeous. If you don't like it, go back to listening to Green Day's stuff and stitch your minds a little tighter.

    Side note: I'm a die hard fan of both Green Day and Norah Jones. :)

  90. Yaoming 237

    Its Good

  91. Craig Hall

    so wait, everyone is pissed mr. greenday would do this...this is probably the best thing he has ever done.

  92. Keir Campbell

    wow billie joe made actual good music for the first time in like fifteen years

  93. Sofis s

    like like like likee!! <3

  94. Robert C Wilson

    Well look who the Civil Wars inspired!

    Sugan Mariya

    @Roy Batty What makes you say they got inspired by the Civil Wars? This is a completely different genre and sound. If its the fact that they formed a girl and guy duet for this album then there have been so many other groups like Fleetwod Mac or She and Him. You should have said, "Look who the Everly Brothers inspired!"

    Robert C Wilson

    I was speaking more to the visual aspect of their pairing. It was a compliment to both teams of artists. Their music also has a quasi-rootsy/country feel mixed with soul. 

  95. MrRDiggity

    surprisingly good! I had no Idea it was BJ singing on this

    MrRDiggity

    and besides he never sang in an actual "punk band"..he sang in Green day hahaha
