Structure + Lyrics

Intro

Pre-verse

Verse

the longest time away
think last time the friends we made
the longest time away
best friend is too cheap to stay

Pre-verse

Verse

of course i'll go with you, not every day i get to
of course i'll stay with you, how often

Chorus

pictures tell so much
they remind me often
your voice brings back so much... situations

Bridge

between the money and your every move, acceptance
between the money and your every move

Pre-verse

the longest time away, my friend

Chorus

pictures tell so much
they remind me often
your voice brings back so much... situations

Bridge

between the money and your every move, acceptance
between the money and your every move
(take a seat at your request
five years i'm still there)
(we both know things never change
we both know static prevails)
