Been Down
by Blue October



I dreamt you seduced me just to walk away
I dreamt you inspired then rewired what I say
I dreamt you spread your bottom wings and pulled me to the bed
But the I woke up feel nauseous
You danced around my head
Tell me

[Chorus]
How long, how long have I been down
How long, how long have I been down
How long, how long have I been down
Down
Down

I dreamt you burned my fingers
Yes an automatic sting
I dreamt you called me beautiful then asked to hear me sing
I dreamt your scent invited me to crawl within your space
But then I woke up feeling nauseous
Girl, you danced around my face
Tell me

[Chorus]

Why can't we work, when we both try
We try, we try, we try, we try
Why can't this work, when we've both tried
Why can't it work, when we both try
We try, we try, we try
God how we've tried
And how we tried

I mean to sympathize
I mean to be a friend
I know apologizing won't erase the end
But I've learned that moving on is where I must begin
Cause when our colors mixed
We couldn't fix the way the wouldn't blend
So tell me

[Chorus]

And I wish that only greatness follow you around
I hope to god you find a way to keep from down
And when you do I hope you share it all with me
Please try to understand
Yeah to understand, me
Just try to understand me
Yeah understand me

How long, how long have we been down
Down
Down
