long days lyrics – david & the citizens

there are two ways of doing this
one is easy and one is complicated
and it’s up to me to pick one, now
and i don’t think i’ll pick the easy one
of all these short-life plans they’re building here
there’s not a single one you should pay attention to
they only do it ‘cos it looks so f*cking good
when they show it on the news

you get long days of belly-ache, that’s you inside of her
you get a wire under the ocean to connect and talk to me
-long days of belly-ache

a million things that i should do
but i tell you all it’s like i’m glued to this chair
november p*ssed just like that
november p*ssed just like that
and i consider these options again
all you mr. suit-gentlemen
come bury me with bullsh*t, please
i know exactly how it feels

you get long days of belly-ache, that’s me inside of her
you get a wire across the sky to carry my love
long days of absolutely nothing at all…

so go ahead, tell me i’m stupid
never ever been a sunbeam
i want to scream until my lounges bleed
i want to scream until i can’t speak
so go on, dig your thumbs in
take a bite of me
take another bite of me

and give me long days of belly-ache,
that’s you inside of me
you get a wire across the sky
to carry all the love you need
long days of absolutely nothing,
nothing at all
long days of belly-ache
