So Long

How long should I hide?

How many tears have I cried?

How long 'til we die?

So long, I have tried.

I ask, oh God why?

Why did I lie?

Give up so much time?

Flush away my pride?

Give up on my mind?

Finally cross that line?

Embark on this ride?

I thought I'd arrived...


I've been hiding for so long.

I've been crying for so long.

I've been dying for so long.

I've been trying for so long!

I've been lying for so long.

Lost our time, so long!

Lost my pride, so long!

Lost my mind, so long!

Crossed that line, so long!

On a ride, so long!

I'll call you when I arrive...
