"Long Time" as written by and Deborah Harry Dev Hynes....
I've been running circles 'round a night that never ends
I've been chasing heartache, in a city and a friend
I've been with you so long, even seen you lose it, but who cares?
Racing down The Bowery, on a crowded afternoon
Tripping from The Davenport of your insecure typhoon
Can you even want me, or is this just a way to keep you safe?

Take me, then lose me, then tell them I'm yours
Are you happy?

Does it take you a long time?
Does it make you upset?
Does it make you think everybody wants to be your friend?
I can give you a heartbeat, I can give you a friend
I can make you think everybody wants to be your friend

Drinking with your cell phone with a smile on your face
Happy in success, but still a thousand miles away
Is this what you wanted, is this everything you had in store?

Take me, then lose me, then tell them I'm yours
Are you happy?

Does it take you a long time
Does it make you upset
Does it make you think everybody wants to be your friend
I can give you a heartbeat, I can give you a friend
I can make you think everybody wants to be your friend

Take me, then lose me, then tell them I'm yours
Are you happy?

I've been running circles 'round a night that never ends
I've been chasing heartache, in a city and a friend
I've been with you so long, even seen you lose it, but who cares?

Does it take you a long time?
Does it make you upset?
Does it make you think everybody wants to be your friend?
I can give you a heartbeat, I can give you a friend
I can make you think everybody wants to be your friend

Take me, then lose me, then tell them I'm yours
Take me, then lose me, then tell them I'm yours
Take me, then lose me, then tell them I'm yours
Take me, then lose me, then tell them I'm yours
