"Long Way Home" as written by and Stuart/watson Adamson....
I'm driving down a dusty road
I've got nowhere to go
No place that I can call my own
On and on this road is burning

I'm leaving all this crap behind
The past is gone, the future's blind
Don't care how long it takes this time
On and on I'll take the long way home

The long way home
The long way home
If it's for me it's on the way home

Like fragments of a broken mind
I splinter by my own design
This search is not a waste of time
On and on this road keeps burning

My hands are glued upon the wheel
The road ahead is all I feel
The only thing left that's real
On and on I'll take this long way home

The long way home
The long way home
I will go alone
I will go and find it on my own

What lies ahead
You cannot find for me
On and on I'll take the long way home

    General CommentIt's his fate/destiny, no one else can find it for him. What is supposed to happen to him will happen "If it's for me it's on the way home".

    General CommentLike Regos_the_Sane said: Totally fate/destiny. And how people these days are all about finding the short cuts and niches, yet he chooses to take his time and explore:

    "(Hey) The search is not a waste of time"

    I can totally relate to this because I am a late bloomer and I chose to hit my weaknesses and explore and question everything, before finally becoming myself.

    And always remember this: While others may say that you're taking the long way when you search for yourself, it truly is the shortest way. Life is a dream. It's meant to be exploited. Life isn't fair. So make it unfair in your favor.

    Just keep the good heart.
