Been Down

This song is by Blue October and appears on the album Approaching Normal (2009).

I dreamt you seduced me just to walk away.
I dreamt you inspired then rewired what I say.
I dreamt you spread your bottom wings and pulled me to bed
But then I woke up feeling nauseous
You danced around in my head... tell me

How long, how long have I been down? (x3)
Down, down.

I dreamt you burned my fingers, yes, an automatic sting.
I dreamt you called me beautiful then asked to hear me sing.
I dreamt your scent invited me to crawl within our space
But then I woke up feeling nauseous
Girl, you danced around my face... tell me

How long, how long have you been down? (x3)
Down, down.

Why can't we work, when we both try?
We try, we try, we try, we try.
Why can't this work, when we both try?
Why can't it work, when we both try?
We try, we try, we try, we try.
God, how we've tried.

I meant to sympathize, I meant to be a friend.
I know apologizing won't erase the end.
I learned that moving on is where I must begin.
'Cause when our colors mixed, we couldn't fix the way they wouldn't blend...
So tell me

How long, how long have we been down? (x3)
Down, down.

I wish that only greatness follow you around.
I hope to God you find a way to keep from down.
When you do, I hope you share it all with me.
Please try to understand, to understand...
Me, understand me.
