Down Too Long

This song is by Barbara Mason and appears on the album Another Man (1984).

I've been down too long
You try to get over
But I been down too long
You try to get over
This I know

Well, you played a dirty game
And I ain't calling out no names
You know who you are
You laid a tender trap but I ain't falling for that
No, not this time

Down too long
Tryin' to get over just one more time
I gotta been down long
Tryin' to get over and blow my mind

Well there would have been a time
I would let you blow my mind
But things have changed
You played a dirty game
I ain't calling out your name
Cause you know who you are

Down too long
You're tryin' to get over well again a eye
But I've been down long
I'm back on my feet again

But I've been down long
Well, I've been down long
You're tryin' to get another trick on me
Down to long
Those things just don't work with me
'Cause I've been down too long
I'm back on my back on my feet again
Down too long
This time I swear you ain't gonna win

You played a dirty game
I ain't calling out your name
You know who you are
Went and laid a tender trap
And I ain't falling for that
No, not this time, well

Don't come with your love, don't come with no game
Don't come tryin' to make me no thing in your chain
'Cause I've been down, down, down too long
You're tryin' to get over just won't do for me
'Cause I've been down too long
You're tryin' to get over
Down too long, said I've been down too long
Somebody's tryin' to get over
