You and I are living heavy-hearted
Are we just another long goodbye?
In this land of the left and leaving
We know that we gotta try

How long can we go on?
Here in the middle, we won't give a little
And how long can we go on like this
Oh won't you tell me?
How long can we go on?
Heart break is what it takes sometimes, you see
But what about you and me?
How long?

Forgiveness is a heavy promise
Its a language that's so hard to speak
I'm hearing whispers by the darkest voices
But I know what you mean to me (so much to me)

How long can we go on?
Here in the middle, we won't give a little
And how long can we go on like this
Oh won't you tell me?
How long can we go on?
Heart break is what it takes sometimes, you see
But what about you and me?
How long?

And all we are, we are
And what will be, will be
You and I we gotta find
A burned up bridge to each others side
Its the only way to see

How long can we go on?

How long can we go on?
Barely living, when nobody's giving in
How long can we go on like this
Oh won't you tell me?
How long can we go on?
Heart break is what it takes sometimes, you see
But what about you and me?
How long?
