  • Oh here you are
    There's nothing left to say
    You're not supposed to be that way
    Did they push you out
    Did they throw you away?

    Touch me now and I don't care
    When you take me I'm not there
    Almost human, but I'll never be the same

    Long way down
    I don't think I'll make it on my own (long way down)
    I don't want to live in here alone (long way down)
    Long way down, I don't think I'll make it on my own

    I never put you down, I never pushed you away
    You're not supposed to be that way
    And anything you want, there's nothing I could say

    Is there anything to feel? Is it pain that makes you real?
    Cut me off before it kills me

    Long way down, I don't think I'll make it on my own
    Long way down, I don't want to live in here alone
    Long way down, I don't think I'll make it on my own

    I never put you down, I never pushed you away
    Take another piece of me
    Give my mind a new disease
    And the black and white world never fades to gray

    Long way down, I don't think I'll make it on my own
    Long way down, I don't want to live in here alone
    Long way down, I don't think I'll make it on my own Writer/s: John T. Rzeznik
