Michael Cavanaugh – Long Enough lyrics

She's poured drinks in this dump for 20 years
Her hair smells like smoke and her hands like beer
Two guys are fuming looks like a fight
She wonders how she does it night after night

Another whiskey, another bourbon
Another day in a world of hurting
She swears there must be more to life

She said it's been long enough
Since I felt worth more than a few bucks on the bar
It's been long enough that I've pushed my dreams aside
I've buried my hopes
And I've wasted my time
For long enough, long enough

She drives up the hill just a mile away
Where the grass is green and the flowers lay
She reads her parent's names across the stones
And though her memories hold her hostage, she's knows it's time to go

The wind is howling, the sky is crying
She don't know where, but she keeps driving
She knows there must be more to life

She said it's been long enough
That I've told myself I can never leave this place
It's been long enough that I've stayed between the lines
I'm gonna take a new road
Cause I've taken my time
For long enough, long enough

I used to let my demons stop me
But I won't live my life in fear
I know there's something better out there
And I know that it's not here

Cause It's been long enough
Since I've felt worth more than a few bucks on the bar
It's been long enough that I've pushed my dreams aside
I'm holding on to my hopes
And I'm not letting go
Cause this time will be different
This time I'll hold on
For long enough
