It’s a long way back home
To pack up and leave again
To gather along
Or you without me again

It’s a long way back home
And a long way back here again
I should have known
That you would just plead again

For the first time I knew what to do
The first time it’s just me and you
Then the worst timing I ever knew
I have to go
I already know

It’s a long way back home
To feel like I’m far away
And how should I know
What goes on here anyway?

For the first time I knew what to do
The first time it’s just me and you
Then the worst timing I ever knew
I have to go

You already know
Why God spent a week on a star
No time, you can’t get there by car
When we get some time on our own
We’ll plan out our next trip alone

It’s a long way back home
From just about anywhere
Cause once through the door
I’m not even halfway there

For the first time I knew what to do
The first time it’s just me and you
Then the worst timing I ever knew
I have to go
I’m already known

It’s a long way back home

It’s a long way back home

    General CommentUmm... this song is kinda country, don't you think? I don't like country. Although the lyrics are pretty, I don't really like this song.

    General CommentI know the song is about so much more and this is a stupid way to relate to a song, but I relate to it because I'm lazy.

    My favorite line:
    "It’s a long way back home
    From just about anywhere
    Cause once through the door
    I’m not even halfway there"

    General CommentI think this song could have two meanings:

    1. He's talking about his first loveand having to leave: "That you would just plead again, For the first time I knew what to do"

    2. and/or his girlfriend is pregnant and his job takes him away (possibly touring with BNL)

    I know, I know shitty explanations, someone please offer a better one!!
