"Long Way Down" as written by and John Rzeznik....
Oh here you are, there's nothing left to say.
You're not supposed to be that way
Did they push you out, did they throw you away?

Touch me now and I don't care. When you take me I'm not there.
Almost human, but I'll never be the same.

Long way down, I don't think I'll make it on my own.
Long way down, I don't want to live in here alone.
Long way down, I don't think I'll make it on my own.

I never put you down, I never pushed you away.
You're not supposed to be that way.
And anything you want, there's nothing I could say.

Is there anything to feel? Is it pain that makes you real?
Cut me off before it kills me.

Long way down, I don't think I'll make it on my own.
Long way down, I don't want to live in here alone.
Long way down, I don't think I'll make it on my own.

I never put you down, I never pushed you away.
Take another piece of me.
Give my mind a new disease.
And the black and white world never fades to gray.

Long way down, I don't think I'll make it on my own.
Long way down, I don't want to live in here alone.
Long way down, I don't think I'll make it on my own.

    General Commentoriginal version by goo goo dolls is nothing compaired to the up tempo version of haste the day's. i appreciate the goo goo dolls and their music but this song definately sounds better when it's played fast. maybe if i want to sleep i will listen to the original but for a song that is about like religion, the passion that haste the day's version has makes a lot more sense. although if you look at it like it is a prayer maybe the original fits better. it all depends on your mood and taste.

    General CommentI love Haste the Day, but I listened to the original version of this song. It sounds like the Goo Goo Dolls version has a lot more emotion put into it. This is a good cover, but the original's still better.

    General CommentThe chorus is pretty self explanatory. You won't make it in this life without God. You're in for a long fall if you try to make it on your own.
