"No More Long Years" as written by and Matthew Wesley Johnson Kimberly Ann Schifino....
1,2,3,4!
1,2,3,4!

Drop what you're doing and worry about what you're doing while stressing
out about what you've done

Embarassment it reads your face
And things you love leave a bad taste
When waking up at 3

Yesterday was like a stone
Yesterday this felt like home
But not today

Mixed around and blended well
Purified so I can't tell
Which way is down
Way is down
Way is down

In my lifetime
Oooooh
No long years now
Oooooh

Turned on and on
Rip me apart
Let them right
Split at the heart
Of common sense

Life isn't how I pictured it
How one grew up and handled it
When I was a child

And now it's starting to make sense
No more long years now

You said this is your nightmare
And no more long years now

In my lifetime
Oooooh
No long years now
Oooooh

I'd give my lifetime
Oooooh
No long years now
Oooooh

    General Commenti like how it says "when wking up at three", because it could mean waking up three years old and not picturing life to be as it is now, and it could mean tree in the morning :)

    I guess because of past experiences (haha) i automatically thought about drunken nights and morning afters. The whole "worry about what you're doing while stressing out about what you've done" is when i was so stressed out or my mind was just so preoccupied with what had happened, that i wasnt paying attention to what i was doing or what i was supposed to be doing.
    and "embarrassment it reads your face and things you love leave a bad taste when waking up at three"
    It pretty much just nails it. Waking up thinking "what the heck did i do last night" then somewhat remembering, youre definitely embarrassed for a while
    "and things you love leave a bad taste when waking up at three"
    I used to love drinking and getting drunk (still love drinking, not getting drunk) and you wake up with a horrible taste sometimes for different reasons, be it throwing up or the drink itself or youre dehydrated..and well, waking up at three is not uncommon after a long night.
