Long Haul

lyrics

Useta feel like a declaration of war
Now I don’t care who wins no more
Once I did but that was youth
Now I prefer the extended truce

My oh my but you’re a prickly pear
A picking up insults when they’re just none there
Oh I know I should watch my mouth
I open it up and stuff just pops out

Oh I know what I said, I say
I’m sorry that you took it that way
I know I coulda said something else instead
But you’d never get to know all the voices in my head

You get all serious, say we got to talk
I get all antsy and I want to walk
Do we gotta talk about it some more
Ain’t we talked about all that before

Talking, talking never did a thing
Like to the birdies when they sing
I guess it’s just part of the ride
Raking over everything everything inside

Oh the differences are pretty clear
Though the edges smooth out some over the years
I am me you be you
Each one of a kind, we’ll always be two

I got anger, you got tears
You get brave, while I got fears
You see the light, I see black dawn
Each of us right, neither of us wrong

One cuts the path while the other one rests
One remembers what the other forgets
One picks up the other when the other one falls
I guess we’re in it baby for the long haul

One picks up the other when the other one falls
I guess we’re in it baby for the long haul
