Long Way Home

Vanessa WilliamsBuy this song

It's hard to say from where you stand  Exactly when it all began 
But someplace there's a point you cross the line
You see the tears than stain your face
 Mirrored in your make-up case
And know it's time to leave this place behind

[Chorus:]
It's a long way home
It's a long way home
It's a long way home
 Trying to retrace your steps 
All too easy to forget 
Just which way to go
It's a long way home

 Outside the sky is threatening 
You slowly gather up your things 
And wonder how you ever will explain  Walking out so self-assured
Yeah, you were gonna change the world  Walking back, a child in the rain

It's a long way home
It's a long way home
It's a long way home
How can you retrace the steps 
You've been trying to forget  Still it's time to go
And it's a long way home

And if you lose your way
Just keep your eye upon that endless broken line

 Throw bag beneath the bus
Sit among the curious 
It happens to the best of us, you know

It's a long way home
It's a long way home
It's a long way home
 Starting to retrace your steps 
You learn to live with your regrets 
Next stop heaven knows
It's a long way home
Such a long way
It's a long way home
