Written, recorded and released in January 2010.

lyrics

Been a long time comin', maybe it's time for me to call it a day
Ain't no use in runnin', wouldn't know where to run anyway
You carry on like it's funny, but you won't be laughin' when your time comes
So hold your breath now honey, 'cause it's here, take it on, take it on, break it off
Oh, hold me back, hey

Don't know what I can tell you, don't know how I would anyway
It's just life and it's not always pleasant, at least you're learning that today
- you're coming along

Nothing's ever perfect – that's nothing new, but it had to be said
You can't iron out life's creases, no you have to wear the shirt and the wrinkles it came with
Don't hold me back, hey hey

Don't know what I can tell you, don't know how I would anyway
It's just life and it's not always pleasant, at least you're learning that today
Oh...

Long time... Long time coming.
Long time... to wait.

Nothing left I can tell you, is there anything you'd like to say?
Bitter pain makes the sweet more pleasant, but it'll come 'round to you in some other way
It's not a straight line honey, there's a corner coming, and around it is more of the same
You're not the only one, you can make it on your own, 'cause millions do it every day

I'm not your one.
You're not the one.
It's over now.
