Thousand Days

Long Demo

Stevie: I know how I sound in the microphone…feminine. It’s hard to be a lady in rock and roll, you know that?
Male Voice: I’m pretty sure we just had this conversation.
Stevie: It is hard to pretend you are angry with us. No, I’m kidding. Or, Sharon and I could use a lot of breath? here and have a totally different song. Like going…

It seems like a thousand days
Since you’ve been gone

Stevie: I mean, from nothing, take it to a greater place.

Seems like a thousand days
Since you’ve been gone
And it seems like a thousand days
Since you’ve been gone
Still it seems like a thousand days
Since you’ve been gone

…came to me
Was to help me up the stairs
You stood at the top of the stairway
You nearly dragged me down the stairs
“You’ve been asleep”
Well…
“I’ve been asleep for how long”, she said
Whoa…
“Why do you question me”
She said
“You’ve never cared about time before, my friend”

You’re not my friend
You’re not my love
And this is something that you
Really can’t discuss

And as all archangels do
And as all archenemies will finally do to you too
Baby, I called
You called
Did I call you

Thousand days
Since you’ve been gone
Seems like a thousand days
Since you’ve been gone
Seems like a thousand days
Since you’ve been gone
Seems like a thousand days
Since you’ve been gone…

Quiet now, songbird
Oh…
Just for one night
Well, I know that you need to sing
And, oh baby
Well, I know that you need to write
You live by the light of the moon
And, I, by the light of desire
His first words
“How many people are there with you now”

Well, I can see the trouble
I expected a storm
Well, I can see the trouble
The sun is here today
And I requested a storm
But, I, like…some kind of
Time/Life edition, tradition, competition
Being the only thing
That I really have to remember
Well, the great singers
And the great players

And if the sun warms the rain
And the rain puts out the…sun

Well, he is on my mind
He’s everywhere
And if he followed me home
Would the sound of both of our voices simply disappear
Well, I miss you now

Seems like a thousand days
Since you’ve been gone
Seems like a thousand days
Since you’ve been gone
Seems like a thousand days
Since you’ve been gone…
Seems like a thousand days
Since you’ve been gone…

He laughs
He has an attitude
So I have an attitude too
He knocks on the door
Next to the courtyard
Well, he frightens me
So I let him in
But I’m already….
Well, I’m already….screaming….
How can the greatest love come from the greatest pain

And it seems like a thousand days
Since you’ve been gone
Whoa…
Seems like a thousand days
Since you’ve been gone
