Mister Rae + Teck-Zilla : So Long Feat. Ryan Lague by Teck-Zilla published on 2013/02/09 21:16:43 +0000 Mister Rae and Teck-Zilla drop their laid back,spacey ode to all the love birds out there. Love is Living Off Volatile Emotions, Love takes you to strange places- and will probably leave you there so pack your survival kit. SO LONG Dear…uhm, you already know who you are I’m writing you this message and attaching a star Right-click, save, make a wish and – voila! I won’t appear I couldn’t make it that far. But somewhere in-between childhood dreams and computer screens I’ll keep falling in love with every girl you’ve been; And keep searching for words that say everything… Everything? Well… you know, almost everything. So long - I know it’s hard to face But I’m gone – heading for the end of space And no one’s – ever going to take my place Even though life is not a race It’s my fate to – roll on. I know I’m flawed, but I’m perfect in the same breath My inner child keeps asking “Daddy, are we there yet?” No son, but we’re one step from watching you set Take my hand, step aside, let me do the rest Rise on this planet that’s half-asleep and half-awake In our spaceship and set our course for outer space ‘Cause this world’s gotten too small for stars like ours Our fortunes too bright for her tarot cards That’s why she can’t believe we’re really going to leave ‘Cause we once said our dreams were hidden up her sleeves Indeed, she was wrong. When humming her own song, The words were too long, she bit her own tongue So long - I know it’s hard to face But I’m gone – heading for the end of space And no one’s – ever going to take my place Even though life is not a race It’s my fate to – roll on. “I never knew a lo..lo.. a love like this”* It’s got to be special for me to bite this Not enough days in a week to sit down a write this So I packed up my bags and blew her a light kiss (So long) I’ve got to hit the road lady (I’m gone)- I can’t help it when I act shady Saw the world through our window every bit of it amazed me Can’t take you along, you need to stay with the baby Rae be on his way so don’t shed a tear I’ll write every holiday to wish you were here Wherever here is, I don’t really know But the truth of the matter, I Mos Def got to go Travelling man, gathering supporters not fans, Rolling with them, only as long as we can But that’s not even long enough to say goodbye Just be happy you and I still share the same sky.
