Take the Long Way Home
by Supertramp



So you think you're a Romeo
Playing a part in a picture show
Take the long way home
Take the long way home

Cos your the joke of the neighborhood
Why should you care if you're feeling good
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 coming down, boy
And then your wife seems to think your 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 the stage it's so unbelievable
So Unforgettable, how they adore you
But then your wife seems to think you're losing your sanity
Oh, calamity, is there no way out

Does it feel your life's become a catastrophe
Oh, it has to be for you to grow, boy
When you look through the years and seen what you could have been
Oh, what you might have been
If you'd had more time

So when the day comes to settle down
Who's to blame if your not around
Take the long way home
Take the long way home

Take the long way home
Take the long way home

Take the long way home
Take the long way home

Take the long way home
Take the long way home

Long way home
Long way home
Long way home
Long way home
Long way home
Long way home
Long way home


From the L.P., "Breakfast in America", 1979 by Supertramp
