"How Long" as written by Brian Howes, Michael Rodden, Austin Winkler, Lloyd Garvey, Ross Hanson, Mark King and Joey Moi....
Why'd you go and break what's already broken?
I try to take a breath, but I'm already choking
How long till this goes away?

I try to remember to forget you
But I break down every time I do
It's left me less than zero
Beat down and bruised
I can't see him with you

Why'd you go and break what's already broken?
I try to take a breath, but I'm already choking
'Cause everywhere I look, I can see how you hold him
How long till this goes away?

I can't seem to get my heart over you
'Cause you creep into everything I do
And now I'm dying to know
How he touches you
I can't see him with you

Why'd you go and break what's already broken?
I try to take a breath, but I'm already choking
'Cause everywhere I look, I can see how you hold him
How long till this goes away?
How long till this goes away?

She said she wants to be friends
I took a big step back
She said, she said she said she's sorry
With one finger, I said, "Fuck that"

I can tell you're lying when your lips move
'Cause of one lie: "It's not me, it's you."
It's left me less than zero
Beat down and bruised
I can't see him with you

Why'd you go and break what's already broken?
I try to take a breath, but I'm already choking
'Cause everywhere I look, I can see how you hold him
How long till this goes away?

Why'd you go and break what's already broken
I try to take a breath but I'm already choking
'Cause everywhere I look, I can see how you hold him
How long till this goes away?
How long till this goes away?

She said she wants to be friends
I took a big step back
She said, she said, she said she's sorry
With one finger...
With one finger, I said fuck that

    General Commentthis song hits home. My wife left my daughter and me for a cop after two years of marriage, so i can identify. especially with the whole "She said she wants to be friends." I told her where to go with her "friendship."

    General CommentHeh, this song reminds me of my last relationship, also. However, she didn't come out and SAY that she was with someone else, she lied about it so I said I would be her friend. When I heard that she did leave me for someone else, she stopped taking my calls, so, I left a voicemail that said exactly what this song said. This song makes me cheer. I love it.

    General CommentTo me this song is where he loved this girl but she left him and he couldn't get her off his mind and her with her new guy. She said she wanted to be friends and that she's sorry that she hurt him and he doesn't want her to be in his life as her friend because he knows it wouldn't work. I can relate to this song *all but one of my x's cheated or tried to cheat on me*
