      About "Longest Days"

      Lyrics for John Mellencamp - "Longest Days"

      Seems like once upon a time ago
      I was where I was supposed to be
      My vision was true and my heart was too
      There was no end to what I could dream
      I walked like a hero into the setting sun
      Everyone called out my name
      Death to me was just a mystery
      I was too busy raising up Cain

      But nothing lasts forever
      Your best efforts don't always pay
      Sometimes you get sick
      And don't get better
      That's when life is short
      Even in its longest days

      So you pretend not to notice
      That everything has changed
      The way that you look
      And the friends you once had
      So you keep on acting the same
      But deep down in your soul
      You know you, you got no flame
      And who knows then which way to go
      Life is short even in its longest days

      All I got here
      Is a rear view mirror
      Reflections of where I've been
      So you tell yourself I'll be back up on top some day
      But you know there's nothing waiting up there for you anyway

      Nothing lasts forever
      And your best efforts don't always pay
      Sometimes you get sick
      And you don't get better
      That's when life is short
      Even in its longest days

      Life is short
      Even in its longest days
