Lyrics

Longer than I thought (words and music B.Kirk)
She got me up on Friday
Point me to the stage
I’m gone
It won’t be long
Til I’ve done my little songs
Got back on the road and flew
Just to get back home to you
But I’m gonna be a little longer than I thought
She got me up on Saturday
A little frayed
But not too frayed to talk
Do you want to take a walk?
There’s no cover tonight, it’s free
But the club don’t close til three
So I’m gonna be a little longer than I thought
She got me up on Sunday
Had some drinks the night before
Still a little sore
Went back to sleep till four
Got down to the “Reef” by five
Then the seawall came alive
And caused me to be a little longer than I thought
She got me up on Monday
With a smile that looked so fine
She was mine
Tonight we’re gonna spend our time
Getting blasted at the bar
We had a fight
She took the car
So I’m gonna be a little longer than I thought

I thought we were alright
I thought we were happy
Kiss and say goodbye
Wait right here for me

She got me up on Tuesday
With not much to say…
She got me up on Wednesday
Said we better have a talk
Or she would walk
Is it music life or love?
She reminded me in the spring
I said I’d buy a ring
But it’s taking me a little longer than I thought
Chorus
I woke myself on Thursday
I wasn’t sure which day it was
Still a little buzzed
I stumbled in the night before
Through someone else’s door
And I stayed a little longer than I thought
I thought we were alright
I thought we were happy
Kiss and say goodbye
It wasn’t meant to be.
