As Long As It Takes (Album Version)

As Long As It Takes (Album Version)

The Spill Canvas

I was watching when you lost direction
And I saw you when the headlights died
You were standing at the edge of a train wreck
Twisted up inside

I tried to find you in your pitch black bedroom
I tried to find you in the place you hide
But your body was an empty suitcase
Hollow sunken eyes

If you let me catch a ride on your road to recovery
You can fall apart on me

Because I'll be here as long as it takes
A remedy to steady your midnight shakes
I'll stay here as long as it takes
As long as it takes to get it right

Strange how no matter what the distance
You can never escape yourself
Distorted by your own reflection
But only I can tell.
I know I said I didn't watch your plane leave
Honestly, I should admit I lied
I was standing at the edge of the runway wishing I could fly

If you let me catch a ride on your road to recovery
You can fall apart on me

Because, I'll be here as long as it takes
A remedy to steady your midnight shakes
I'll stay here as long as it takes
As long as it takes to get it right.

It's beautiful to break
Let your false flag drift away
Show me your face

You can fall apart on me

Because I'll be here as long as it takes
A remedy to steady your midnight shakes
I'll stay here as long as it takes

I'll be here as long as it takes
A memory that steadies your midnight shakes.
I'll stay here as long as it takes,
As long as it takes to get it right.
