Everlast – Long Time lyrics

She was a hot blooded woman, he never saw it comin'
She hit em from the side that's blind.

She never gave a warning, he woke up in the mornin'
Layin' there next to his bride.

He got a little crazy, when she had a little baby,
Cause it filled him with a fatherly pride.

But a couple years later, when their love starting fadin'
He hurt so bad he nearly died.

[Chorus:]
It's been a long time,
Since I was faithful,
It's been a long time,
Since I was grateful,
It's been a long time,
Since I could look you in the eye.
It's been a long time
Since I was grateful...

She's a mother with a daughter, sittin' by the water,
Because it's better for her baby to breathe.
She's gotta man sittin in prison,
Cause he didn't want to listen,
Now he is sittin' waitin' on a reprieve

But she loves the little baby, but she get a lil crazy,
Cause it's harder then she ever concieved

He left her all alone, now she's doin it all alone
Cause she loves him like you wouldn't believe

[Chorus:]
It's been a long time,
Since I was faithful,
It's been a long time,
Since I was grateful,
It's been a long time,
Since I could look you in the eye.
It's been a long time
Since I was grateful...

He's a friend and a lover
Husband and a brother, he's always been a prodigal son

He get's a lotta drama when he goes to see his momma
Cause he curses like a son of a gun.

He's beggin to his lady, let him see his baby,
He swears that she's the only one

He's gotta a heart full sorrow, he's livin for tomorrow,
And he's sorry for the damage he's done.

[Chorus:]
It's been a long time,
Since I was faithful,

It's been a long time,
Since I was grateful,

It's been a long time,
Since I could look you in the eye.

It's been a long time
Since I was grateful...

[Chorus:]
It's been a long time,
Since I was faithful,

It's been a long time,
Since I was grateful,

It's been a long time,
Since I could look you in the eye.

It's been a long time
Since I was grateful...

Grateful...
