I left my house, a night, now long past
To find myself, out of control, far too fast
I wandered the path, tired and alone
Searching far for the long road home.
The nights, they passed me by
Until my dreams learned to fly
And as the grew my desire dwindled
The long road home, the fire went unkindled
I dallied and I wandered, ever alone and wild
Before my dreams fell along the way, in a heap they piled,
One by one turning to dust, until the way was clear
The long road home, calling my name, was ever-near.
And yet, I did delay, waiting for what, I cannot say
The wind and the waves of time did their best to sway
My heart and my mind to go on
To take my feet to the long road home.
But fear and doubt, always about, did lead me astray
Little did I realize, the years while away
So many passed without notice until one day
The long road home finally swept me away.
Through doors once closed I wandered
And through paths long dead I saundered
Until the path, to me, came clear
The long road home, lead to fear.
The long road home
The journey not taken
Leaves one alone
Sorry and forsaken
In this state, I, myself, did find
And I found at once the chains that bind
My heart and my feet unto this place
The long road home, ends in disgrace
For the people and the place that love once carried
Are no more, for time has not tarried.
Not time, I found , to say farewell
The the place that once held a spell
That kept me warm, and fed for life
And all I gave it was strife.
So, goodbye my love, good bye my dear
It is now far too late I fear.
The Long road home,
I should have taken,
For it was you, you that I have forsaken.
