Supertramp - Take the long way home
Tekst en muziek: Roger Hodgson en Rick Davies
(1979)






So you think you’re a Romeo
You’re playing a part in a picture-show
Well, take the long way home
Take the long way home



’Cause you’re the joke of the neighbourhood
Why should you care if you’re feeling good
Well, take the long way home
Take the long way home



But there are times that you feel you’re part of the scenery
All the greenery is comin’ down, boy
And then your wife seems to think you’re part of the furniture
Oh, it’s peculiar, she used to be so nice



When lonely days turn to lonely nights
You take a trip to the city lights
And take the long way home
Take the long way home



You never see what you want to see
Forever playing to the gallery
You take the long way home
Take the long way home



And when you’re up on the stage, it’s so unbelievable
Oh, unforgettable how they adore you
But then your wife seems to think you’re losing your sanity
Oh calamity, is there no way out



And than you feel that your life’s become a catastrophe
Oh, it has to be for you to grow, boy
And when you look through the years and see what you could have been
Oh, what you might have been
If you would have more time



So, when the day comes to settle down
Who’s to blame if you’re not around
You took the long way home
You took the long way home
You took the long way home
You took the long way home



You took the long way home
You took the long way home
You took the long way home
You took the long way home



Long way home
Long way home
Long way home
Long way home
Long way home
Long way home
Long way home
