Long time you’ve been living the dream
Telling me ya gonna get it together
Your boyfriend’s come back on the scene
Someone call the police right now
She’s in trouble and losing blood fast
Come on we’ve gotta get away
What ever way we do this
We’ve gotta leave tonight
Come on and hold me tight
We’ve gotta get you outside, let’s go

Oooh no I don’t understand you
No, there’s really nothing I can do

You, you gotta open up the door, babe
Show me, that you’re willing to fight
You’re willing to give your all.
You, you gotta open up and walk away this time.
Show me that you really got it in you to see this through.

Long time you’ve been looking for love
You give it up for that shit they bring you
Bad boyz running you down the whole time
Do you renounce all that pain you’re feeling
I don’t wanna make it even worse for you babe
Come on you gotta get your things together here
He should be looking at ten years in
You gotta tell someone
You gotta turn the man in, this time

Oooh, no you don’t understand me
No, I don’t know how to make you see

You, you gotta open up the door, babe
Show me, that you’re willing to fight
You’re willing to give your all.
You, you gotta open up and walk away this time.
Show me that you really got it in you to see this through.

Oooh you’ve only got right now,
You’ve only got the here and now,
You’ve only got right now to get it right.

You, you gotta open up the door, babe
Show me, that you’re willing to fight
You’re willing to give your all.
You, you gotta open up and walk away this time.
Show me that you really got it in you to see this through.

    General CommentI think this song is about a girl invovled in an abusive relationship. The narrator is trying to make her see that she needs to get out of the relationship but the girl is not hearing her. So the narrator is stuck and doesn't know what to do to make her see that she needs to stand up and be strong and walk away before it's too late.
