  • She sat right down on the sofa
    I said, "Where have you been? I've been waiting for you.
    'Cause last night I had something so good
    These days get so long and I got nothing to do"

    I been hangin' around this town on the corner
    I been bummin' around this old town so long
    I been hangin' around this town on the corner
    I been bummin' around this old town for way too long

    We spend all day getting sober
    Just hiding from daylight
    Watching TV
    We just look a lot better in the blue light
    Well, you know I gotta get out
    But I'm stuck so tight
    Weighed by the chains that keep me...

    Hangin' around this town on the corner
    I been bummin' around this old town too long
    I been hangin' around this town on the corner
    I been bummin' around this old town for way too long

    And this girl listens to the band play
    She says "Where have you been?
    I've been lyin' right here on the floor"

    Well, I got all this time
    To be waiting for what is mine
    To be hating what I am
    After the light has faded

    Hangin' around this town on the corner
    I been bummin' around this old town so long
    I been hangin' around this town on the corner
    I been bummin' around this old town for way, way, way, way, way too long

    I Hangin' around this town on the corner
    I been bummin' around this old town too long
    I been hangin' around this town on the corner
    I been bummin' around this old town for way way, way, way, way too long
    Way way, way, way, way too long
    Way way, way, way, way too long
    Way way, way, way, way too long
    Way way, way, way, way too long
    Way way, way, way, way too long
    Way way, way, way, way too long Writer/s: DAVID BRYSON, ADAM DURITZ, CHARLES GILLINGHAM, MATTHEW MALLEY, BEN MIZE, DANIEL VICKREY, DANIEL JOHN VICKREY
