lyrics

Long Way Home
Long Way Home-Sonya Heller-©2011-Sonya Heller Music-ASCAP

Verse I

A weed is just a flower
On the wrong side of town
So I won’t stay here
If you don’t want me around
When halls are haunted
On a once hallowed ground

Chorus

It’s a long way home sometime
I’ll pack my bags and well I’ll
Sing my walkin’ song
On the long way home sometime

Verse II

Well you can’t fight the weather
When the winds blow strong
Nor two waves crashin’
With the comin' of a storm
We’re just two soldiers still at war
With what went wrong

Chorus

On the long way home sometime
My feet are tired but they’ll still
Get me where I’m goin’
On the long way home sometime.

(Instrumental)

Verse III

Well I’ll give thanks to my maker
When my time is at hand
An’ I promise postcards
When I reach the promised land
If I don’t make it I’ll let
Moses take my hand

Chorus

On the long way home sometime
Up on that mountain, well
The view is simply grand
On the long way home sometime

For weed or flower
We’re all flowers in the end
On the long way home sometime

Bridge

Sometime, sometime, I feel so far, I feel so far
Oh sometime, yeah sometime, I feel so far, I feel so far, I feel I feel I feel, I feel…

Chorus and out

It’s a long way home
It’s a long way home
It’s a long way home…sometime…
