"Only For So Long" as written by and Scott Preston/browning Alexander....
How many times has this gone on?
Call 'cause it's just been too long
Say it's good to hear it's going fine
Check that you're still featured in my mind

Tell me what you want to hear
And I'll play along
Tell me when you want me near
I'll play along but only for so long

Show me scars where it began
And I will come with violins
I don't need a clock to know it's wasted time
What's your mood ring doing now?

Tell me if you want me near
I'll play along
Tell me what you love to fear
I'll play along but only for so long

Only for so long
Only for so long
Only for so long

Tell me if you want me near
I'll play along
Tell me what you love to fear
I'll play along

    General CommentShe's playing games, and he really does love her and will bend over backwards for her, but he can't tolerate all the BS and her attitude. Still one of my fave old school Dishwalla songs. :)

    General Commentit's about one man living with illusions and lies, and the "cathartic" action of the music on him

    ...How many times has this gone on?
    Call 'cause it's just been too long
    Say it's good to hear it's going fine...
    ...Show me scars where it began
    And I will come with violins...
