"How Long?" as written by Annie Lennox and David Allan Stewart....
It's five o'clock
In the afternoon
Somebody's playing
A sixties tune on the radio

A lazy wind tumbles
Down the street
It shakes the dust up
With the summer heat
Where the people go

In fancy town
Where nothing's real
They don't consider
What you feel

In fancy town
It's black & white
They close their minds
They say
Wrong is right

How long
Will your love
Hold on
To stay strong enough

In fancy town
The attitude
Could strip you bare
Like frozen food

A ship of fools
In a crazy choir
Is gonna take you home
And light your fire

In fancy town
Where nothing's real
They don't consider
What you feel

In fancy town
It's black & white
They close their minds
They say
Wrong is right

How long
Will your love
Hold on
To stay strong enough

A deck of cards
In perfect black
Like cold cement
On the pavement cracks
Where lovers steal
And beg for time
And doctors sign
On the dotted line
