From Wikipedia: "Long Distance Runaround" is a song by the progressive rock group Yes first recorded for their 1971 album, Fragile. Written by lead singer Jon Anderson, the song was released as a B-side to "Roundabout" but became a surprise hit in its own right as a staple of album-oriented rock radio. The song's 3:30 running time was uncharacteristically brief for a group known for expansive songs often longer than ten minutes; though, it and "The Fish (Schindleria Praematurus)", into which it segues, may be considered a single opus, of 6:09.
Yes co-founder Jon Anderson wrote the lyrics to this song while allegedly remembering his encounters with religious hypocrisy and competition he experienced in attending church regularly as a youth in northern England. "Long time / waiting to feel the sound" was a sentiment toward wanting to see a real, compassionate, non-threatening example of godliness.
Lyrics: Long distance runaround Long time waiting to feel the sound I still remember the dream there I still remember the time you said goodbye Did we really tell lies Letting in the sunshine Did we really count to one hundrer
Cold summer listening Hot colour melting the anger to stone I still remember the dream there I still remember the time you said goodbye Did we really tell lies Letting in the sunshine Did we really count to one hundred
