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 then I woke up feeling nauseous
You danced around my head

Tell me
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
How long, how long have you been down?
How long, how long have you been down?
How long, how long have you been down,
Down, down?

And why can't we work when we both try?
We try, we try, we try, we try
And why can't this work when we both try?
And why can't it work when we both try?
We try, we try, we try, how we try
And how we try

I meant to sympathize, I meant to be your friend
And no apologizing won't erase the end
But I learn that moving on is where I must begin
'Cause when our colors mixed
We couldn't fix the way they wouldn't blend

So tell me
How long, how long have we been down?
How long, how long have we been down?
How long, how long have we been down,
Down, down? Yeah.

And I wish that only greatness follow you around
I hope to God you find a way to keep from down
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? Yeah.
