Long Way Up (The Ballad of Dean)

from Start to Finish EP by Adam Sakellarides

lyrics

I'm battered
I'm bloody
I'm injured
I studied

Each procedure and each tactic,
But things were flying, things were frantic

I'd taken
I'd rallied
Mispoken
Miscarried

I rose up in blink of an eye.
the crowd was screaming, and so was I

It's a long way up
But it's never too far to climb
It's a long way up
I'm rising right into my prime

Outspoken
and head strong
I just can't
wait too long

To right the wrong, and wrong the right
I just can't take decisions lightly

I'm smarter
I'm stronger
I mince words
No longer

Make it better, or stay the course
This time I've picked a winning horse

It's a long way up
But it's never too far to climb
It's a long way up
I'm rising right into my prime

I can see headlines
They can see hairlines
I can see foul play
It won't get away this time

I'm gathered
I'm composed
I spit-shined
my windows

Door-to-door, I'll give you time
I'll give you reason, I'll give you rhyme

It's a long way up
But it's never too far to climb
It's a long way up
I'm rising right into my prime
