It's Been Awhile by Staind
Album: Breaking the CycleReleased: 2001Charted:
In this song, Aaron Lewis sings about a girl who left a long time ago. He cant get over her and he feels ashamed of himself.
In the video, the woman being sung to by Staind lead singer Aaron Lewis is actually his wife, Vanessa. They have been married since 1998. Vanessa likes to use her digital camera to record portions of every Staind concert. She gets shots of both the band and the crowd. Then the band sometimes watches the footage after the show.
The video was directed by Staind mentor and lead singer of Limp Bizkit, Fred Durst.
In 2001, NBC used this in promos for its show UC: Undercover.
A live version of this song appears at the end of Break The Cycle
on some releases.
