lyrics

IT'S A LONG WAY HOME

my soul is shining
in the small of your hand
and even though i can’t see you
your fingers are warm
my shelves may be empty
my days spent alone
my memories may not be so happy
but at least you’re at home

it’s a long way home

you don’t have to come here
if you think i’m untrue
but i won’t grow tired
of waiting and watching for you
or tired of asking
or tired of pain
or tired of feeling
and being the same

it’s a long way home

there’s a pathway through these mountains
i can feel it in my bones
but the way has been hidden
and my footprints turned to stone
so i’ll wait here at this outpost
throwing logs on the fire
watching hope rise from ashes
with only one desire

it’s a long way home
