“Long Way Home” Lyrics

The other night, I took the long way home
I passed the old schoolyard
It’s funny how you keep it all inside
Dreams they do die hard

I closed my eyes, and I could see your face
Somewhere back in time
One summer night a million miles ago
Back when you were mine

Say yes, say no, say that I’m grabbin’ at shadows
But don’t carve the words in stone
I know it’s late, but can’t you see I was only
Taking the long way home?

Sometimes it’s easy to get all wrapped up
In trying to be free
And all those dreams I sailed away to find
Were right in front of me

Say yes, say no, say that I’m grabbin’ at shadows
But don’t carve the words in stone
One of these days, you’re gonna see I was only
Taking the long way home

Although the letters stopped many years ago
I’ll show you even time could not
Keep this heart from letting go

The other night, I took the long way home
I passed the old schoolyard
It’s funny how you keep it all inside
Dreams they do die hard

Say yes, say no, say that I’m grabbin’ at shadows
But don’t leave me here all alone
One of these days, you’re gonna see I was only
Taking the long way home

Say yes, say no
But don’t leave me here all alone
One of these days, you’re gonna see I was only
Taking the long way home

Say yes, say no
But don’t leave me here all alone
One of these days, you’re gonna see I was only
Taking the long way home
