Long Red lyrics

Long Red, drifting through my mind
Dream here, dreamin' there
Two pieces all the time
Bright Red, yeah

Wisdom's in my dreams
Bits and pieces in my arms
Ain't always what it seems

Long Red, am I gonna find a way
Bright Red, when you gonna name the day (all right)
Long Red, yeah

You have changed me too
Stranger now it seems somehow
My bread has turned to glue
Bright Red, yeah

Tears and shades of grey
I found you I vouch
Forever for today

Long Red, am I gonna find a way
Bright Red, when you gonna name the day
Long Red, yeah

Tears and shades of grey
I found you I vouch
Forever for today
