Lyrics

Took a long time to feel it
Even longer to let it go
Took a long time to feel it
Even longer to let it show
When what you want
And what you need
Fight tooth and nail
Blood on the street
The only winner here
To rise above
Comes in a glass
Comes with a buzz.
Took a long time to feel it
Even longer to let it go
Such a long road to heal it
And where it leads you can never know
When what you have
And what you need
Are miles apart
And never meet
The time moves slowly now
With the marriage gone
Just the shame in tow
And the false alarms
Took a long time to feel it
Even longer to let it go
Took a long time to see it
Through the haze of the afterglow
For a moment there
This magic carpet ride
Was floating through the air, yes
We were flying high
But when a dream comes true
You know in time you just can’t rely, cuz
Live long enough, child, and chances are
You’re gonna watch it die
Took a long time to feel it
Even longer to let it go
Took a long time to feel it
Even longer to let it show
Well now you know…
