Honeyhoney – Not For Long lyrics

We'll leave she said
Blowing smoke from her white cigarette
And I don't mind
Leaving you without a long goodbye

And maybe I won't miss you when I'm gone
But darling you know to leave your light on

Dressed in white
Another loud and lonesome city night
Six more flights and I'm doing things your mama
Wouldn't like

And maybe I won't miss you when I'm gone
Baby, you're a light that won't turn on

But not for long
Not for long

Days make tips
Twice as much with lips and swinging hips
Kiss by kiss
Every single time it's hit or miss

And maybe you won't miss me when I'm gone
I need you when I can't keep moving on

But not for long
Not for long
Not for long
Not for long
Not for long
Not for long
