lyrics

HOW LONG
Dad finds my pipe in the pocket of my coat
Three days after I promised that I wouldn't take another toke
He leaves the words unspoken that his trust in me is broken
An' I feel invaded inside of me 'cause he read from my own diaries
Yet behind two silent doors we both sing in separate harmonies
How long, how long must I wait for your love?
How long for your love?
How long, how long must I wait for your love?
How long for your love?

The bread of faith was stale when he brought it to the table
And she knew then that he had been untrue
She cried, "Ed, why'd you do it?"
And he said, "There's nothing to it."
But he longed to search her eyes for the forgiveness that he craved
But they kept the walls between them and their hearts continued bleeding
Crying to say:
How long, how long must I wait for your love?
How long for your love?...

And in the street all eyes are searching
And in the halls our hearts are burning
Sacred fire is whipped to sparks, scattered by the wind
Some of us are lost on the inside
Some of us are lost on the outside
But all of us know right where we belong
Crying:
How long, how long must we wait for our love?
How long for our love?
How long, how long must we wait for our love?
How long, for our love?
