How Long 01:40
Melissa floats on her back Exhales into that marble sky 3 Months of cops and blacktops Turn to air with every sigh We're spittin pits into the grass now How long can a sweetness last now How long til this is the past we can't believe we're lookin back on? Someone screams "a watersnake!" It's slicin the skin of the lake With many others in its wake How many were there? I can't say We strip our suits off for the day How long can a sweetness stay How long til we look back and say We can't believe we lived that way The storm corralls us to our cars Like a wet jaw snappin herdin dog With a crack the lightning starts And bits of hail bounce off the tar We're drivin cringin with every pelt How long til a sweetness melts How long til there rings a bell How long til there rings a bell How long til there rings a bell That signals us Return from hell
