How Long

This song is by Honeymoon Suite and appears on the album Monsters Under The Bed (1991).

In a town by the border
Where the skies light up at night
The river runs muddy water
And many men have lost the fight
In a tree, there's a bird
Just singing to be heard
Will I fly alone
They're taking away my home

I'll never understand
The games that they play
I have to stop and wonder
What I really mean to say

How long till you find what you're looking for
How long till it's gone, gone, gone
And everybody wants to be king for a day
(How long)
Till the kingdom slips away

There's a man on the hill
Just to give the eye a thrill
No stranger to the danger
He lies where he will
Well, the time is finally here
Will we let it all disappear
In this town by the border
Where the illusions are so clear

I never understand
The games that they play
I have to stop and wonder
What I really mean to say

How long till you find what you're looking for
How long till it's gone, gone, gone
And everybody wants to be king for a day
(How long)
Nobody cares anymore
Nobody cares anymore
And nobody cares anymore

How long till you find what you're looking for
How long till it's gone, gone, gone
And everybody wants to be king for a day
(How long)
And mother kingdom slips away

How long till you find what you're looking for
How long till it's gone, gone, gone
And everybody wants to be king for a day
(How long)
Mother kingdom slips away

How long
Tell me, how long
Everybody's souls are slippin' away
It's slippin' away
It's slippin' away
Slippin' away
Slippin' away
