Supertramp Take The Long Way Home Lyrics

Last updated: 05/04/2014 06:42:31 AM

So you think you're a Romeo
You're playing a part in a picture-show
Well take the long way home
Take the long way home

But you're the joke of the neighborhood
Why should you care if you're feeling good
Well take the long way home
Take the long way home

But there are times that you feel you're part of the scenery
all the greenery is comin' down, boy
But then your wife seems to think you're part of the
furniture oh, it's peculiar, she used to be so nice.

When lonely days turn to lonely nights
you take a trip to the city lights
And take the long way home
Take the long way home

You never see what you want to see
Forever playing to the gallery
You take the long way home
Take the long way home

And when you're up on stage, it's so unbelievable,
unforgettable, how they adore you,
But then your wife seems to think you're losing your sanity,
oh, calamity, is there no way out?

But does it feel that you life's become a catastrophe?
Oh, it has to be for you to grow, boy.
When you look through the years and see what you could
have been oh, what you might have been,
if you had had more time.

So, when the day comes to settle down,
Who's to blame if you're not around?
You took the long way home
You took the long way home...........
