Long Time Lyrics

Long Time Lyrics

It's been a long time,
Since I've seen your smiling face.
It's been a long time,
Since I've seen a su-u-u-u-u-u-unny day.

It's been a long time,
Since you wore your pillbox hat.
It's been a long time,
Since we...

    When I first heard this my mind went to a younger man having a lovely affair with an older woman and it had been a long time since she ever drove her Pontiac or wore her pillbox hat which are 1960s items. And my mind never went any further with the song I know I've seen the video but probably too stoned to recollect LOL

    I'm wondering if it's a couple who have been together long enough that all joy and spontaneity has left their relationship, but he doesn't care as long as he is still with her.
    The "tomb" being their dead relationship, "arsenic", being their wedding.
    Alternatively, I'm feeling it could literally be a murder/suicide and he's still happy in death to be near her and happy with his choice, missing none of the things that they enjoyed while alive, as long as he rests beside her eternally.
    Thoughts?

    In the music video, the singer and his monkey friend pick the forbidden fruit and get sent to jail for a long time then get driven to the death sentence by a truck. the singer kicks out a patch in the door. his friend can fit and he gets out but the singer can't fit and and accepts his fate to save his friend. the monkey stumbles after the truck and get there just in time to see his friend (the singer) executed. This song is about how sometimes we have to make sacrifices to save others.
