Long History

Words: Ryan / Music: Ryan and Dachshund

Time until
you’re laid to rest
Holding out
Another knows best!
So afraid
I’ll be over, oh, if I try!
Fall asleep,
kiss another goodbye.

You got a long history
of being what you are.
Don’t have to wonder why,
Ain’t no river there to cry.
Every word you sing,
It’s the same old song
and it ring so true,
‘cuz it’s what you are.

All the people
down in Hell
watch you tend
your prison cell.
Aye, the key…
is it all of your own design?
Weight of the world,
or the weight of your mind?

You got a long history
of being what you are.
Walk any way you want
you’ll never be what you are not.
Wear the Velvet Chic
or the Feathered Tar,
Gonna show right through
‘Cuz it’s what you are.

You got a long history
of being what you are.
Don’t have to wonder why,
Ain’t no river there to cry.
Every word you sing,
It’s the same old song
So better get that clue
and give ’em what you are!
