about

Written on a dark back road on a drive home, Long Way Home has a retro feel with strong Fleetwood influence.

lyrics

It’s a Friday night
And I got nowhere on my mind
I’m just humming a tune
And swallowing the white lines
What a friend I have in emptiness
Turning wheels
What a friend

It’s a hell of a lie
Oh it’s a wicked one too
When I told myself
Baby I was over you
But every now and then
My words betray me
Every now and then
Every now and then

I’m taking the long way home
I don’t wanna talk to nobody
I just wanna be alone
I’m taking the long way home

I’m a shadow of myself
Oh there’s a shadow on my soul
It’s a cold hand leading
Down to where I don’t wanna go
Well I dug myself out before
I’ll do it again
I dug myself out
And I’ll do it again

I’m taking the long way home
I don’t wanna talk to nobody
I just wanna be alone
I’m taking the long way home

Goin home
Oh home
Yeah I wana go home

It’s a Friday night
And I got someone on my mind
I’m just thinkin down that road
Back to when we were lovin and kind
Well I took it to heart
My body left reeling
Yeah I took it to heart
Why’d I take it to heart

I’m taking the long way home
I don’t wanna talk to nobody
I just wanna be alone
I’m taking the long way home

I’m taking the long way home
There’s a heart that’s beating
In the wheels on the road
I’m taking the long way home

Going home
Take me home
