Will Oldham – Take However Long You Want lyrics

Take however long you want
I will be here when you haunt
You can wait here forever
By the trees alone
And I won't be sorry when you're gone

Take however long you need
As times will wait around to be
Something tall and black and glamorous
Like about what you would dream
But you won't be hanging round with me

When you're about to go away
Lie when they look you in the face
Laugh and make jokes
Like the others do
And at night I will be hanging out with you

I will be here
When you need to leave
And I won't be sorry when you go
