Wait So Long (Trampled by Turtles)

I could never pretend that I don't love you. You could never pretend that I'm your man. That's exactly the way that I want it. That's exactly the way that I am. And you call me in the morning with your troubles Takin' it downtown every night I could never place the stars at night above ya. I got my hands on the ground, and you know I'm right. You wait so long, You wait so long, You wait so long, You wait so long. It's a coffee stained earth ever time it happens. Liven up honey it ain't that bad. Any afterthought rose to recognition Like every other coffin that I had And your buick broke down in Winnemucca, Fall to your knees and you pray to the lord Then you take up hope at the politicians: Nothing happens in this burnt out town anymore. You wait so long, You wait so long, You wait so long, You wait so long. And your heart rolls on like a frozen freight train You know that I help you if I can But I'm just a raindrop in a river Just a little itty-bitty grain of sand And you know that I'm doomed to repeat this With all the bad habits that I've learned But it's better than your fire-borne fornication And all the dirty money that you earn. You wait so long, You wait so long, You wait so long, You wait so long.
