Long Time

Long Time

Everlast

She was a hot blooded women, he never saw it comin'
She hit him from the side that's blind
She never gave a warning, he woke up in the mornin'
Layin' there next to his pride
He got a little crazy when she had a little baby
'Cause it filled him with a fatherly pride
But a couple years later when their love started fadin'
He hurt so bad he nearly died

[Chorus]
It's been a long time, since I was faithful
It's been a long time, since I was grateful
It's been a long time, since I could look you in the eye
It's been a long time, since I was grateful

She's a mother with a daughter, sittin' by the water
'Cause it's better for her baby to breathe
She got a man that's in prison cause he didn't wanna listen
Now he's sittin' waitin' on a reprieve
And she loves her lil' baby but she get a lil' crazy
'Cause it's harder than she ever conceived
He left her on her own, but she's doin' it alone
Cause she loves him like he wouldn't believe

[Chorus]

He's a friend and a lover, husband and a brother
He's always been a prodigal son
He gets a lot of drama when he go to see his momma
'Cause he curses like a son of a gun
He's beggin' to his lady, let him see his baby
He swears that she's the only one
He's got a heart full of sorrow, he's livin for tomorrow
And he's sorry for the damage he's done

[Chorus x2]
