Long May I Sleep

lyrics

I can't believe myself, how could I believe someone else?
I can't afford the shoes I wear, I got them back before when I had cash to spare
long may I wear them

I want the life I have to finally dig its grave, I want to lose the battle with the world I crave
let me walk and think a while and I'll find and doubt the truth in every song I write
long may I write

Now I see the way that all things come, not a bite of food will ever touch my tongue
if it isn't in the will of my beloved One, and truly I say He watches every crumb
low, he hides all the things I wanna bite

A handful at a time I take the things I see, I try to write them down and take them back with me
I wrestle but the words don't sound the way they read, it's like trying to pull my childhood from out a dream
long may I sleep
