Tragically Hip - Long Time Running lyrics

Does your mother tell you things
Long, long when I'm gone?
Who you talking to?
Is she telling you I'm the one?

It's a grave mistake
And I'm wide awake

Drive in's rained out
Weatherman wet fingers the sky
He pokes it out, he pulls it in
He don't know why

It's the same mistake
It's been a long time running
It's been a long time coming
It's well worth the wait

We don't go anywhere
Just on trips
We haven't seen a thing
We still don't know where it is

It's a safe mistake
It's been a long time running
It's been a long time coming
Well, well, it's all the same mistake
Dead to rights and wide awake
I'll drop a caribou
I'll tell on you
I'll tell on you
I'll tell on you

You've got a boatload of nerve
But I would say you've been told
You work me against my friends and you'll get
You'll get left out in the cold

It's the same mistake
It's been a long time running
It's been a long time coming
It's been a long, long, long time running
It's well worth the wait
It's well worth the wait
It's well worth the wait
It's well worth the wait
