I’ve never needed anything like this,

It’s a mountain I must climb,

And it seems so long and the sun won’t set,

It’s just one long day outside,

But the life just keeps unfolding,

Throwing things my way,

And I keep looking for the light,

Through the shades of grey,

How long can this day be?

I want to rest my head and wake up soon,

How long can this day be?

I want to rest my head and wake up soon,

I ask myself which way I should go,

The answers there I find,

And the map to show the way is clear,

It’s been there all the time

Feels like I’m in slow motion,

Watching people pass me by,

And I let them in before me,

As im standing here line

How long can this day be?

I want to rest my head and wake up soon,

How long can this day be?

I want to rest my head and wake up soon,

Don’t wait for me,

I feel bad if you’ve been waiting

So patiently,

for me

I’ve got no excuses,

I don’t understand myself,

It’s not the way I thought it would be,

here but still,

If I get to cross this bridge,

I know the sun will shine,

And in all the places I’m going to go,

There’ll be love day and night,

And my journey is my family,

My friends and my guitar,

And  our destinations will guided by the stars

How long can this day be?

I want to rest my head and wake up soon,

How long can this day be?

I want to rest my head and wake up soon,
