"How Long" as written by Ian Moore and Michael Dan Ehmig....
Callin' me up from a deep sleep dreamin'
Black cat keeps scratchin' at my back door
Cold chills are runnin' cross my shoulder
I've felt that ghost round here before

Somebody sittin' in my kitchen
Nobody else at home but me

I hear a voice keeps callin' my name
Lord, Lord will they ever let me be
Paid my dues for the road I've taken
Done my time for the things I've left behind

Contradictions cloudin' up my future
Wish that they would just let me see

How long will this thing keep hauntin'?
How long must I keep on runnin'?
How long will this devil keep callin' me?

How long will my eyes keep burnin'?
From the image of the world I'm leavin'
How long will this devil keep callin' me?

Stones sittin' right in my pathway
Take me down to the place I don't want to be

Lord my burden just gets so heavy
I wish I could take it and set it free, yeah
Tonight there's a cold moon risin'
Tonight that light is blindin'

How long will this thing keep hauntin'?
How long must I keep on runnin'?
How long will this devil keep callin' me?

How long will my eyes keep burnin'?
From the image of the world I'm leavin'
How long will this devil keep callin' me?

How long will this devil keep callin' me?
How long will this devil keep callin' me?
