lyrics

LONG STORY SHORT
© Marcellus Hall 2009
E, A, B7…

long story short, everything was wrong
no, not everything, just this song
how can you convey in words what words cannot express?
how can you… no, wait, I digress
if I would have known I never would have done it
she played the blame game but I won it

oh, if you see her, please, tell her I love her
if you see her, please, tell her I care

we got along pretty good, but it wasn’t a perfect fit
something was missing you had to admit
she shut the windows and she shut the doors
she said let’s marry… then divorce
but the joke was on me and no one gets it
everyone headed for the nearest exit

= = =

they accuse me of being into one kind
but they’re blind, they’re blind
When she left she said ‘i’m not gonna say this twice.’
Then she gave me some valuable advice

She said ‘if you see something, say something’ (2x)

Things are gonna change in a big way
The rest of your life has just begun and this is the first day
