This Long

I don't know why
I can't say no
I guess I should
But I can't let go
Anyday I'll be all right
But not tonight
But come away from the window and close the blind
And sleep on the couch when the bed's too wide
Who said you could keep this heart of mine
This long
This long
So long
There's a quiet in this room
The TV don't fill
And I know I'll be better soon
But come away from the window and close the blind
And sleep on the couch when the bed's too wide
Who said you could keep this heart of mine
This long
This long
So long
And there's a bitter taste in my mouth
That's salt and spice and sweet
With one last sigh the leaves let go
And fall down to the street
Not much to say so I won't call
Don't even want to try
And I'll make some sense of it all
But come away from the window and close the blind
And sleep on the couch when the bed's too wide
Who said you could keep this heart of mine
This long
So long
