11. Why Does It Take So Long

Control
by Abandon



 

V1
Why does it take so long for me
To know who I want to be
Am I missing something here?
Iíve been an orphan down and out
And a king with a calloused heart
But who am I supposed to be

Chorus
Iíve carried this cross
Iíve been lost and lonely
I had to walk this world to see
That you are where I want to be
And why does it take so long
To find my way home

V2
Why canít I just let it go
Iíve been fighting with my own soul
Itís a fight Iím losing
But somethingís gonna turn around
Iím on the ropes but donít count me out yet
No donít count me out

Bridge
Am I looking for a sign
Looking for something written in the sky
To show me how
To get whatís in my heart to my head now

Chorus 2
You carried the cross
For the lost and lonely
You had to walk this world so I could see
That you are where I want to be
Why did it take so long?
(You were here all along)
Why did it take so long?
(Even when I was wrong)
To find my way home
