Pearl Jam Long road Lyrics

Last updated: 12/30/2012 12:45:02 PM

and I wished for so long...
I cannot stay
All the precious moments...
Cannot stay
It's not like wings have fallen...
I cannot say
Without you something is missing...
I cannot say

Holding hands of daughters and sons
In their phase they're falling down
Down, down, down

I have wished for so long...
How I wish for you again

We all walk the long road
I cannot stay
There's no need to say goodbye

Oh, the friends and family...
All the memories going round
Round, round round...

I have wished for so long...
How I wished for you today

And the wind keeps rollin'
And the sky keeps turning grey
And the sun is setting
The sun will rise another day

I have wished for so long...
How I wish for you today

I have wished for so long...
How I wish for you today
Will I walk the long road?
We all walk the long road

Sublime Lyrics | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/30/12

My 17 year old son was killed in a motor vehicle crash this year and through all of the sadness and grief two things stood out: not having the chance to say goodbye and the absence of his presence; I am Catholic and I always was comforted during Mass when the Lord's Prayer is recited as it gave me the opportunity to hold my son's hand as I did when he was a child. This song seems to address such a profound loss. I consider it a prayer and I am grateful for it.

Amazing!!!!! | Reviewer: Ann | 9/11/12

This is one of my favorite songs by PJ. So moving & powerful. Gives me goosebumps every time I hear it. Also reminds me of a song my Dad would have enjoyed as he was a huge Neil Young fan.
