Down so Long - Jewel

sun sets 'cross the ocean / i'm a thousand miles from anywhere / my pocketbook and my heart both just got stolen / and the sun act like she don't even care / the wind blows cold when you reach the top / it feels like someone's face is stuck to the bottom of my shoe / i got a plastic jesus, a cordless telephone for every corner of my room / got everybody but you telling me what to do / but i've been down so long / ooh, it can't be longer still / i?ve been down so long / that the end must be drawing near

i look to everybody but me to answer my prayers / ?til i saw an angel in a bathroom / who said she saw no one worth saving anywhere / and a blind man on the corner said it's simple, like flipping a coin / don't matter what side it lands on if it's someone else's dime

but i've been down so long / ooh, it can't be longer still / we've been down so long / that the end must be drawing near

i take a trip, i catch a train, i catch a plane / i got a ticket in my hand / and then a man takes my money / and like cattle we all stand

but we've been down so long / ooh, it can't be longer still / we've been down so long / the end must be... i know the end must be... / oh, i know the end must be drawing near
