Long Year

 

APPEARS ON


I came in off a dead end street
Walked in slow and took a back row seat
I knew I had nothing new to say
So many people looked so burned out
I couldn't help feeling bad about just having to be there anyway

A friend of a friend from work came in
I never had known what to make of him
He'd always seemed to be so insincere to me
You know I've always been afraid of a 12 step crowd
They laugh too much and talk too loud
Like they all know where everyone should be

It's been a long long long year
It's been a long long long year
How did I get here?

They were talking in a circle, I was by myself
Everyone was telling everyone how they felt
It felt like so long since I'd been young
As the circle kept moving its way to the back
I was wondering what I was gonna say in fact
I still didn't know as it rolled off my tongue

It's been a long long long year
It's been a long long long year
How did I get here?

I didn't say a word all the way to the car
But a little later on that night at the bar
I was telling everybody how strange my day had been
They said brother all you need is another shot
So I threw one down and said thanks a lot
As I thought to myself well here we go again

It's been a long long long year
It's been a long long long year
How did I get here?
