I took one step away
And I thought it was the heart.
Still feel the heat from here,
Still see the lights still feel the warmth.
What's another step or two,
That wouldn't be so wrong would it?
Then when I looked for truth,
My eye for truth was gone.
And out of desperation,
Have mercy please.
A spell of wisdom just came over me.

Chorus

I took the long way home,
Back to what I believe.
I took the long way home,
You were waiting there for me.
You were always faithful even when,
My faith was not so strong.
It's been a long way home.

No I never intended to,
Get off the track so far.
The lights that turned my head,
Are looking quite bizare.
It takes so little time,
For me to be deceived, yeah.
But just a simple phrase,
Can bring me to my knees.
There are some stones better left unturned,
And some bridges never crossed are better burned.

Chorus

I took the long way home,
Back to what I believe.
I took the long way home,
You were waiting there for me.
You were always faithful even when,
My faith was not so strong.
Ah, It's been a long way home.

Oh, I took the long way home,
Back to what I believe.
I took the long way home,
You were waiting there for me.
You were always faithful even when,
My faith was not so strong.
It's been a long way home.
