Brett Dennen - So Long Sweet Misery

rate me

So long my misery

I don't need you, you've only caused me grief

Forgive me if I fall asleep

I haven't slept in centuries

Daylight lives like a burden for me

So I escape the sennit strewn about the street

Beyond the ruins of my ancestry

Far past the pages of my disbelief

I rose from my moat, like a ghost from a grave

Sunken in the salty eyes of the wanderin' displaced

I was headed through the mists across the golden gate

All of my rebellions fall into the fog of fate

So long my misery

I don't need you, you've only caused me grief

Forgive me if I fall asleep

I haven't slept in centuries

Springtime came again and Icarus fell

I flew past the numb-lipped nuns who never tell

The secrets of the sailors and their seven year spell

I will not fall nor will my wings ever melt

If I could I would wash all these wounds away

I would surround your room with sentiments of grace

I would paint your portrait over everything mundane

More colorful than Easter Sunday

So long my misery.

I don't need you, you've only caused me grief

Forgive me if I fall asleep

I haven't slept in centuries

Put me on a boat, leave my inhibitions at bay

My mind is spilling but I haven't much to say

I was running through the canyons towards the echoes of your name

You were laughing at me like sun laughs at a flame

Put me on a page in a book of beginnings

Let me scroll through old volumes of ancient teachings

Let me revel in all of these forgotten feelings

Lay me with the wretched in the arms of my queen

So long sweet misery

I don't need you, you've only caused me grief

Forgive me if I fall asleep

I haven't slept in centuries

So long sweet misery

I don't need you, you've only caused me grief

Forgive me if I fall asleep

I haven't slept in centuries.

No, I haven't slept in centuries.

I haven't slept in centuries
