The important part of life is the journey, not the destination. I keep extending my pleasure, enjoying the journey more than the destination.
Even if the journey is full with hardship, it is preferable to be in it, dealing with it, getting beaten by it, learning from it, and sticking with it, rather than simply sitting at some destination.
I have the restless permanent tendency to wander, to end up at places I should not be. I can not settle down and I never make it back home.
Winners, losers and small time searchers do what they must on their own. Lovers, dreamers and beautiful believers all take the long way home. Some have their reasons, some have lost their way, but all live with their hearts.
Well I stumbled in the darkness
I’m lost and alone
Though I said I’d go before us
And show the way back home
There a light up ahead
I can’t hold onto her arm
Forgive me pretty baby but I always take the long way home
Money’s just something you throw
Off the back of a train
Got a head full of lightning
A hat full of rain
And I know that I said
I’d never do it again
And I love you pretty baby but I always take the long way home
I put food on the table
And roof overhead
But I’d trade it all tomorrow
For the highway instead
Watch your back if I should tell you
Love’s the only thing I’ve ever known
One thing for sure pretty baby I always take the long way home
You know I love you baby
More than the whole wide world
You are my woman
I know you are my pearl
Let’s go out past the party lights
Where we can finally be alone
Come with me and we can take the long way home
Come with me, together we can take the long way home
