Lyrics: You've been gone so long
When you smiled at me
It was love at first sight
Our skin was smooth
And our burdens were light
One summer night

We kept our voices low
To hide from the nosey neighbors
At the end of our street
We tested our love
And it tasted sweet

I brought a rose like lovers do
Survived an awkward moment or two
Tripping over young lust for you
And you picked me up with a kiss

You've been gone so long
Like the last note
Of an old sad song
It don't sound right
If you hold it too long
I think I held on too long
I think I held on too long

I brought flower like lovers do
Red, green
Purple, yellow, and blue
Tripping over my love for you
And you picked me up with a kiss

You've been gone so long
Like the last note
Of an old sad song
It don't sound right
If you hold it too long
I think I held on too long
I think I held on too long
About the Artist
Buddy Moncrief Buddy Moncrief

Somewhere out on New Route 66, about 50 miles west of Sinatra and 75 miles east of Tom Waits, Swanson struts his swingin' and singin'. He loves Dave Frishberg songs and Johnny Walker in a tumbler. He'd like to hear Kurt Elling cover Stone Temple Pilots. Lonnie Johnson is God.

On his latest full-length release "We Can't Party Like We Used To" (2009 Acoustic SwaneeLand), Swanson pounds out 12 original vocal jazz cuts with a cool retro vibe. His bluesy vocals and tasty guitar licks remind of crooners past and present - Sinatra, Cole, John Pizzarelli come to mind - but his clever songwriting has a leaner, edgier feel to it that puts him squarely in the current century.
