Lyrics

It's been a long time
Living with myself
It's been a long time
Living with me

For 23 years I've heard every word
And know every thought from the place where it springs
I look in the mirror, and there I am
I sit on the couch, and I'm my companion

I think that I've figured a way to escape,
But I laugh cause I know the exact mistake
That I'm going to make, and they way that I'll break
And I think that I'm taking a new road, but here
I'm still acting like me all these 23 years

Been a long time
Living with myself
It's been a long time
Living with me
It's been a long time
Living with myself
It's been a long time
Living with me

Once I rebelled and tried to run away
But I knew all the places I had gone to stay
When I returned I placed a gentle hand on me
And I said "It's ok to know the way I have to be"

For 23 years I've heard every word
And known every thought from the place where it springs
I cannot withhold, and I cannot give
Every dream that I keep, every day that I live

And just when I think that I'm growing tired
Of the ways that I fail, and they ways I aspire
I fall back in love with they way that I am
And I buck all the rules, and I damn all the trends
And I chip at the wall, and I swim at the tide
And I change in a way that I never have tried
And I stop and I stare at the girl that appears
Who's still surprising me after these 23 years


Been a long time
Living with myself
It's been a long time
Living with me
It's been a long time
Living with myself
It's been a long time
Living with me

It's been a long time
Living with myself
It's been a long time
Living with me
It's been a long time
Living with myself
It's been a long time
Living with me
