Lyrics
It's hard to say from where you stand
Exactly when it all began
But someplace there's a point you cross the line
You see the tears than stain your face
Mirrored in your make-up case
And know it's time to leave this place behind

[Chorus:]
It's a long way home
It's a long way home
It's a long way home
Trying to retrace your steps
All too easy to forget
Just which way to go
It's a long way home

Outside the sky is threatening
You slowly gather up your things
And wonder how you ever will explain
Walking out so self-assured
Yeah, you were gonna change the world
Walking back, a child in the rain

It's a long way home
It's a long way home
It's a long way home
How can you retrace the steps
You've been trying to forget
Still it's time to go
And it's a long way home

And if you lose your way
Just keep your eye upon that endless broken line

Throw bag beneath the bus
Sit among the curious
It happens to the best of us, you know

It's a long way home
It's a long way home
It's a long way home
Starting to retrace your steps
You learn to live with your regrets
Next stop heaven knows
It's a long way home
Such a long way
It's a long way home
