Blue October comes through again!

Dear January 2007-December 2009,
Blue October wrote a song for us. It’s called “Been Down” and on their new album titled “Approaching Normal.” Life is funny that way sometimes.

I dreamt you seduced me just to walk away.
I dreamt you inspired then rewired what I say.
I dreamt you spread your bottom wings and pulled me to the bed,
but then I woke up feeling nauseous;
you danced around my head
.
Tell me:

How long, how long have I been down
How long, how long have I been down
How long, how long have I been down
Down
Down

I dreamt you burned my fingers.
Yes, an automatic sting.
I dreamt you called me beautiful then asked to hear me sing.
I dreamt your scent invited me to crawl within your space,
but then I woke up feeling nauseous;
you danced around my face.
Tell me:

How long, how long have you been down
How long, how long have you been down
How long, how long have you been down
Down
Down

Then why can’t we work, when we both try;
We try, we try, we try, we try.
Why can’t this work, when we’ve both tried?
Why can’t it work, when we both try;
We try, we try, we try.
How we’ve tried.
And how we tried.

I mean to sympathize,
I mean to be a friend.
I know apologizing won’t erase the end;
But I’ve learned that moving on is where I must begin.
‘Cause when our colors mixed
we couldn’t fix the way they wouldn’t blend.
So tell me:

How long, how long have we been down
How long, how long have we been down
How long, how long have we been down
Down
Down

And I wish that only greatness follow you around.
I hope to god you find a way to keep from down.
And when you do I hope you share it all with me;
please try to understand.
Yeah to understand… me.
Just try to understand me.
Yeah, understand me.


Yep. That about sums up everything I felt for at least the last 4 months of those two years.
