How Long?

You can take it all--
the gifts you gave,
even rip the pictures off the wall
They're yours now
'Cause I know you need them

The one thing that I wanted
was just to take good care of you,
a job I'm underqualified to do

But you keep asking me,
'How long will it be?'
And how long,
How long has it been?

How long?
How long?
How long until we'll meet again?

How long?
How long?
How long 'til I see you again?

So you're selling all your clothes,
your records,
and anything of value you that you might own
to help you buy a ticket out of here

The one thing that I wanted
was just to take good care of you,
a job I'm underqualified to do

But you keep asking me,
'How long will it be?'
How long...
how long has it been?

How long?
How long?
How long 'til we...
'til we meet again?

How long?
How long?
How long until I...
until I see you again?

Tell me what's the matter
I can't explain
This won't go on forever
I'll see you again
As long as I remember
The way it all started
The way it all...

(Chorus) Tell me what's the matter
(How long?)
I can't explain
(Oh)
This won't go forever
(How long?)
I'll see you again
(Oh, oh)
How long until we...
until we meet again?

(Chorus) It won't be long
It won't be long

Tell me what's the matter
(How long?)
I can't explain
(How long?)
This won't go on forever
(How long?)
I'll see you again

How long until we...
until we meet again?

It won't be long
It won't be long
