Everlast — Long Time lyrics

She was a hot blooded woman, he never saw it comin'
She hit em from the side that's blind.

She never gave a warning, he woke up in the mornin'
Layin' there next to his bride.

He got a little crazy, when she had a little baby,
Cause it filled him with a fatherly pride.

But a couple years later, when their love starting fadin'
He hurt so bad he nearly died.

(Chorus)
It's been a long time,
Since I was faithful,
It's been a long time,
Since I was grateful,
It's been a long time,
Since I could look you in the eye.
It's been a long time
Since I was grateful...

She's a mother with a daughter, sittin' by the water,
Because it's better for her baby to breathe.
She's gotta man sittin in prison,
Cause he didn't want to listen,
Now he is sittin' waitin' on a reprieve

But she loves the little baby, but she get a lil crazy,
Cause it's harder then she ever concieved

He left her all alone, now she's doin it all alone
Cause she loves him like you wouldn't believe

(Chorus)
It's been a long time,
Since I was faithful,
It's been a long time,
Since I was grateful,
It's been a long time,
Since I could look you in the eye.
It's been a long time
Since I was grateful...

He's a friend and a lover
Husband and a brother, he's always been a prodigal son

He get's a lotta drama when he goes to see his momma
Cause he curses like a son of a gun.

He's beggin to his lady, let him see his baby,
He swears that she's the only one

He's gotta a heart full sorrow, he's livin for tomorrow,
And he's sorry for the damage he's done.

(Chorus)
It's been a long time,
Since I was faithful,

It's been a long time,
Since I was grateful,

It's been a long time,
Since I could look you in the eye.

It's been a long time
Since I was grateful...

(Chorus)
It's been a long time,
Since I was faithful,

It's been a long time,
Since I was grateful,

It's been a long time,
Since I could look you in the eye.

It's been a long time
Since I was grateful...

Grateful...
