lyrics

he says
come back to bed, my darling
why you been gone so long?
it’s lonely without you there next to me
you know i don’t like sleeping alone
alone

and when i close my eyes i still dream of you
falling to your knees
but you know i don’t look forward to seeing you
now
you’ll look different
than you did to me

and we’re so long done
now nobody grieves
when you’re lost and gone
you should belong to someone else
so go on
and so long

do you doubt in the girl lying close to you?
the key to the cure on her hips
all the gold in her wings couldn’t keep you still,
no
you’ve left better girls than this

and we’re so long done
now nobody grieves
when you’re lost and gone
you should belong to someone else
so go on,
go on, go on
and so long
so long

and for all you deny
the look in their eyes
the loneliness comes
and it comes out at night
and the crimes you commit
they go to your head
‘til the last thing you heard
was the last thing you said
in so long
in so long

and there’s another goodbye in your rearview
so you might as well keep it in drive
and if your moon don’t hang as
high as it should
well, you’ve been running all your life

and we’re so long done
now nobody grieves
when you’re lost and gone
you should belong to someone else
and we’re so long done
now nobody grieves
when you’re lost and gone
you should belong to someone else
but you don’t belong to no one else
so go on
and so long

he says
come back to bed, my darling
why you been gone so long?
