Long was time, long, long was the time again (2x)

Long was the time when they say the phoenix was calling
Even through the city and the rain I could hear she was balling
Found here in the coldest light of that early morning
I could see those cuts and bruises only told a little bit of the story
Can you see the history now?
Looked up like a secret in her father's house
Very military was his rationale
And he was the worst of the demons
Well she went up and down
Dug herself deep into the underground
Looking for the sugar and candy now
So she gave way to the phoenix
The only problem was the phoenix did not care
She let me burn by her side cause she never ever cared

Oh whoa,
I,
Oh whoa,
My lady phoenix
Oh whoa,
I
(2x)

Long was time, long, long was the time again (2x)

Lost myself on why
You can't take advantage twice
She will always catch you in her vice
When everything crashes
This is a warning for you
You should never test her anger
You could lose everything in this world
Well she will go harder now
Dig herself deeper in the underground
Looking to replace her angry daddy now
Because that's just what burns at this phoenix

Oh whoa,
I,
Oh whoa,
My lady phoenix
Oh whoa,
I
(2x)

Yeah (5x)

This is just a warning
The only problem was the phoenix wasn't there
How can I tell with all the blood and the flames?
You should tempt her if your lovin wasn't there
She will always rise from the ashes again

Oh whoa,
I,
Oh whoa,
My lady phoenix
Oh whoa,
I
(2x)

Long was time, long, long was the time again (2x)
