So Long Sweet Misery Lyrics - Brett Dennen

Review The Song (0)



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
