takes so long lyrics – the weepies

i don’t know why, i don’t know why
i don’t know why it takes so long

i cut my hair, i grow it back
first the thought and then the act
to think a plant up towards the sun
it can’t be done, it can’t be done

i don’t know why, i don’t know why
i don’t know why it takes so long

i see you now, i saw you then
i know you more, and different
i can’t contain it, still complain
love’s a weed, trust is rain

i don’t know why, i don’t know why
i don’t know why it takes so long
i don’t know why, i don’t know why
i don’t know why it takes so long

in a moment wings unfurl
a b*tterfly, a little girl
star pieces fall to the ground
streaks of light, just tonight

sam and libby, lib and sam
made a little one of them
a baby’s born a man to die
i don’t know why, i don’t know why

i don’t know why, i don’t know why
i don’t know why it takes so long
it takes so long
it takes so long
it takes so long
