How Long

It’s twelve o’clock and all is well
You text me from your last hotel
Can’t wait to see your loving smile again
I dim the lights and close my eyes
But I can’t sleep it’s no surprise
I feel just like a kid at Christmastime

Chorus
How long, how long
How long before the morning
Breaks the dawn
How long, how long
I haven’t slept a wink since you’ve been gone

It’s 2:13 and I’m awake
Hell maybe I’ll get up to bake
I know you love my cherry crumble pie
Instead I toss and turn some more
It’s either that or pace the floor
That clock keeps tickin’ louder all the time

Chorus
How long, how long
How long before the morning
Breaks the dawn
How long, how long
It feels like years and years since you’ve been gone

Chorus
How long, how long
How long before the morning
Breaks the dawn
How long, how long
It feels like years and years since you’ve been gone

It’s 4 a.m. and I’m bright eyed
Just two more hours ’till that sunrise
Thank the Lord for Daylight Savings Time
I think of your soft lips on mine
My stomach pains of love divine
I’m longing for your warm embrace again

You left before the mornin’ rise several days ago
And now I’m left with zombie eyes oh honey come on home!

It’s 6:15 right on the dot
I jump from bed and start to plot
Hmm, stiletto heals and cellophane?

Well you’re changing planes in Montreal
I hear the phone and my heart falls
“Hey babe I’m sorry my flight’s been delayed”
Oh Great!

Chorus 4
How long, how long
Now that the mornin’ sun has come and gone
How long, how long
Can’t make it through another night alone
Next time I’ll keep you here all to my own
It’s really not the same when you’re not home
Spoken: Whew, maybe I’ll take a nap!
