Red Hot Chili Peppers – How Long lyrics

How long, how long will I slide
Seperate my side
I don't, I don't believe it's bad
Slittin my throat it's all I ever...

I heard your voice through a photograph
I thought it up and brought up the past
Once you know you can never go back
I gotta take it on the other side...

Centurys are what it meant to me
A cemetary where I marry the sea
A stranger thing that never changed my mind
I gotta take it on the other side
I gotta take it on take it on...


Pour my life into a paper cup
The ashtrays full and I'm spilling my gut
She wanna know am I still a s***
I gotta take it on the other side...

A scarlet startlet and she's in my bed
A candidate for the soul mate bled
Push the trigger and I pull the thread
I gotta take it on the other side
Take it on the other side
Take it on
Take it on...


Turn me on, take me for a hard ride
Burn me out, leave me on the other side
I yell it tell it that it's not my friend
I tear it down, I tear it down
And then it born again

Chorus x2
