This is pretty much the first song I wrote, back in 1978. This recording was done live in October 2009 using GarageBand software, in one take, with the Flip camcorder running (and with some imaginary musicians joining me for the final verse).
words and music by Jonathan Ochshorn (copyright 1978 J. Ochshorn)
1. you and him been together so long you're always walking hand in hand think it might last forever? well you're wrong even mountains turn to sand now you say he has to go away but even so you're gonna be a pair long distance love affair
2. first he'll write lonely letters and you'll smile thinking about him far away you'll write back and he'll feel better for a while still he has to face the day all alone he'll call you on the phone he wants to know if you'll still be there long distance love affair
[bridge] lying in bed he's all alone the touch of your skin is just a memory it goes to his head but it's no good to phone cause you're far away and there's nothing more to say
3. visiting on his vacation you explain you're going out with your new friend he won't ask for explanations he'll just feel the pain everything must have an end pretty soon he'll find someone new and you won't even care long distance love affair
