Structure + Lyrics 

Intro 

Pre-verse 

Verse 

the longest time away 
think last time the friends we made 
the longest time away 
best friend is too cheap to stay 

Pre-verse 

Verse 

of course i'll go with you, not every day i get to 
of course i'll stay with you, how often 


Chorus 

pictures tell so much 
they remind me often 
your voice brings back so much... situations 

Bridge 

between the money and your every move, acceptance 
between the money and your every move 

Pre-verse 

the longest time away, my friend 

Chorus 

pictures tell so much 
they remind me often 
your voice brings back so much... situations 

Bridge 

between the money and your every move, acceptance 
between the money and your every move 
(take a seat at your request 
five years i'm still there) 
(we both know things never change 
we both know static prevails)
