  • I set out on a great adventure
    The day my father started leading me home
    He said there gonna be some mountains to climb
    And some valleys we're gonna go thorough

    But I had no way of knowing
    Just how hard this journey could be
    'Cause the valleys are deeper and the mountains are steeper
    Than I ever would've dreamed

    But I know we're gonna make it
    And I know we're gonna get there soon
    And I know some times it feels like we're
    Going the wrong way
    But it's just a long way home

    Some rocks in my shoes, fears I wish I could lose
    They make the mountain so hard to climb
    And my heart gets so heavy
    With the weight of the world sometimes

    And there's a bag of regrets
    I should have been and not yets
    I keep on dragging around
    And I can hardly can wait for the day I get to lay it all down

    Well I know that day is coming
    And I know it's gonna be here soon
    And I know I won't turn back even if the whole world
    Says I'm going the wrong way
    'Cause it's just a long way home

    When we can't take another step
    Our Father will pick us up and carry us in his arms
    And even on the best days
    He says to remember we're not home yet
    So don't get too comfortable
    'Cause really all we are is just pilgrims passing through

    Well I know, we're going to make it
    And I know we're going to get there soon
    I'll keep on singing and believing
    What all of my songs say

    'Cause our God has made a promise
    And I know that everything he says is true
    And I know wherever we go, he will never leave us
    'Cause he's going to lead us home
    Ever single step of the long way, home

    (Keep on, we're going to make
    I know we're gonna make it
    We're just taking the long way home
    Keep on, we're gonna make it
    I know we're gonna make it
    We're just taking the long way home
    Keep on, we're gonna make it
    Keep on, we're going to make
    I know we're gonna make it
    We're just taking the long way home
    Keep on, we're gonna make it
    I know we're gonna make it)
    It's just a long way home
