Down So Long


Lyrics & Info

Performances (282)

The sun sets across the ocean 
I'm a thousand miles from anywhere 
And my pocketbook and my heart 
Both just got stolen 
And the sun acts like 
She don't even care 
The wind blows cold 
When you reach the top 
Feels like someone's face 
Is stuck to the bottom of my shoe 
I got a plastic Jesus 
And a cordless telephone 
For every corner of my room 
Got everybody but you 
Telling me what to do

But I've been down so long 
Ooh, it can't be longer still 
I've been down so long 
That the end must be drawing near

I look to everybody but me 
To answer my prayers 
Until I saw an angel 
In a bathroom 
Who said she saw no one 
Worth saving anywhere 
And a blind man on the corner 
Said, "It's simple, 
Like flipping a coin 
Don't matter what side it lands on 
If it's someone else's dime"

But I've been down so long 
Ooh, it can't be longer still 
We've been down for so long 
That the end must be drawing near

I take a trip 
I catch a train 
I catch a plane 
I got a ticket in my hand 
And then a fat man takes my money 
And like cattle we all stand

But we've been down so long 
Ooh, it can't be longer still 
We've been down so long 
The end must be... 
I know the end must be... 
Oh, I know the end must be 
Drawing near
