Been Down - Blue October

I dreamt you seduced me
Just to walk away
I dreamt you inspired
Then rewired what I say
I dreamt you spread your bottom wings
And pulled me to the bed
But then I woke up feeling nauseous
You danced around my head

Chorus:
Tell me
How long, how long have I been down?
How long, how long have I been down?
How long, how long have I been down?
Down, down

I dreamt you burned my fingers
Yes an automatic sting
I dreamt you called me beautiful
Then asked to hear me sing
I dreamt you sat, invited me
To crawl within your space
But then I woke up feeling nauseous
Girl, you danced around my face

Chorus:
Tell me
How long, how long have you been down?
How long, how long have you been down?
How long, how long have you been down?
Down, down

And why can't we work when we both try?
We try, we try, we try, we try
Why can't this work, when we both try?
Why can't it work when we both try?
we try, we try, we try, how we try
And how we try

I meant to sympathize,
I meant to be a friend,
I know apologizing won't erase the end,
But i learned that moving on is where I must begin,
Cuz when our colors mixed,
We couldn't fix the way they didn't blend

Chorus:
So tell me
How long, how long have we been down?
How long, how long have we been down?
How long, how long have we been down?
Down, down

Yea, and I wished that only greatness follow you around,
I hoped to god you find a way to stay away from down,
When you do i wish you will share it all with me,
Please try to understand, yea to understand me,
Just try to understand me, yea understand me
How long, how long have we been down?
Down, down, yea
