It Takes So Long

It takes so long to find the way
To agree yourself with people
Who try to change you every day
So many years you hold it back
You swallow down your anger
Till you feel it in your neck

And it's coming up low
First you feel it in your toes
Like a stone in your stomach
Exploding in your head

And it keeps you down
It takes away your breath
You can't stand the pain
And it's coming again

And your body aches
The nights are never ending
Till you find your rest
On a warm and tender breast

They tell you how to make a deal
They tell you how to make this real
The lift you up and let you fall
And deep within you hear a call
It takes so long to find the way
And not get changed by every day

So long, so long
You've been searching for another way
Another way to get through
Another way to make your own dreams come true

So long, so long
You've been searching for another way
Another way to get through
Another way to make your own dreams come true

It takes so long to find the way
To agree yourself with people
Who try to change you every day
So many years you hold it back
You swallow down your anger
Till you feel it in your neck
