you said I'm wise, but I'm not so sure
Maybe my lies were just that good
And my lonely tears wish never to be
Puddled on the floor with just them and me

It's a long life, a long life to be always longing
It's a long life, a long life to be always longing

There's truth in these eyes, you can rest assured
Salvaged by voices that have no words
Running with fear left ruin in its wake
Is the measure of a man how much love he can fake?

It's a long life, a long life to be always longing
It's a long life, a long life to be always longing

Oh, time, it is so hard
With all your fears and your running around
We sadly burn down what we had
It happens so long

It's a long life, a long life to be always longing
It's a long life, a long life to be always longing
