Long Way Round (Single)

lyrics

I took the long way round,
looking for someone to talk to
someone to help me along

I’ve been looking for evergreen
through the highs and the lows
a hillside that’s rarely seen
they say it glows

turning the world around
one step at a time
wide-eyed with jealousy
or deaf dumb and blind

I took the long way round,
looking for someone to talk to
someone to help me along

In the spring I went south
looking for love
whether with or without
it wasn’t enough

so I sang and I threw
my soul out to sea
played till i dropped, then
cried in my sleep

I took the long way round,
looking for someone to talk to
someone to help me along

In the quiet of my reverie
A light is shining through
No I don’t got time, to make believe
A darker dream of you
