I wrote “A Long Long Time” for my ex-partner, after we had decided together that we needed to move forward separately. It was a long time coming, our break up, during which we both grew and learned and struggled. But we loved each other, and we cared for each other. I wrote this song as an expression of my continued love and care, and my hopes that she would find in her future a life and partner that would cherish her the way she deserved. It’s no easy thing, recognizing the need to split with someone you do still have love for, but we do what we must, and if we can do it with compassion and love and well wishes, all the better. I recorded the track in one take, adding a drum and handclaps in studio, and then layering on piano, rhythm and lead acoustic, and harmonies at my home studio in my Berkshires cottage. – Billy Keane
