Bacon Brothers – When You Decide You've Stayed Too Long lyrics

Written by kevin bacon

And if this morning is our last
How long 'til I will not remember
Will you become my distant past
Before July becomes December
And if I lose your photograph
How long 'til I will lose your face
Find some echo of your laugh
Hiding in some darker place
And if I give you everything you ask
Every word of every song
Will I have nothing left to live for
When you decide you've stayed too long

And if I locked you up inside
How long 'til you would want another
And slip away into the night
Try and find yourself a lover
And if I gave you everything you'd see
All my blood and flesh and bones
Will my spirit still belong to me
When you decide you've stayed too long
Yeah will my spirit still belong to me
When you decide you've stayed too long
