'Way Too Long' Describes The Pain of Distance
Looking at empty cans on his nightstand and an ashtray full of cigarettes, Adam Hood pleads to his lost love from somewhere on the road to meet him in the middle. Strung out and lonesome, all he wants is her head on his shoulder. Break up songs are the best because they come from a place that nearly everyone in the world can relate to. When you literally lack the effort to stand up, songs like Way Too Long can punch you right in the gut, despite its up-tempo chorus. The singer-songwriter from Alabama really nails it here.
