"winding roads" as written by David Adam Weisberg and Bonnie Somerville....
Well, the rain keeps on coming down
It feels like a flood in my head
And that road keeps on calling me
Screaming to everything lying ahead

And it's a winding road
I've been walking for a long time
I still don't know
Where it goes
And it's a long way home
I've been searching for a long time
I still have hope
I'm gonna find my way home

And I can see a little house
On top of the hill
And I can smell the ocean
The salt in the air
And I can see you
You're standing there
And you're washing your car
And I can see California sun in your hair

And its a winding road
I've been walking for a long time
Still don't know
Where it goes
And it's a long way home
I've been searching for a long time
Still have hope
I'm gonna find my way home

All these dreams took me so far
And I felt I just couldn't go on
And I want to hang
Out the window of your car
And see just how good this baby can run

'Cause it's a winding road
I've been walking for a long time
And I still don't know
Where it goes
And it's a long way home
I've been searching for a long time
Still have hope
We're gonna find our way home

It's a winding road
Still have hope
One day we'll find our way home
It's a long way home
I've been searching for a long time
Still have hope
We're gonna find our way home

It's a long way home
It's a long way home

    General CommentThis song was the reason I bought the soundtrack to Garden State. To me this song talks about the journey all of us either want to take or are taking in life. Searching for where we belong..or where we want to belong.

    General Commentwell this song has a lot of special meaning to me. first of all, i love bonnie's voice, its soo calming. also, she talks about being able to "see" california sun.


    um to me this song is about trying to find where you belong and how its a really long road and you never know where its going to take you but in the end its completely worth it


    "All these dreams took me so far
    And I felt I just couldn't go on
    And I want to hang
    Out the window of your car
    And see just how good this baby can run"

    seems like she wanted to give up but wanted to keep going to see how much better it could get.

    "its a long way home" is refering to the long road ahead when you're trying to find where you fit in in the world.

    i think this song is absolutly beautiful and amazing. one of my favorite songs off the garden state soundtrack....definatly under rated

    General Commentthis song just calms me right down.
    garden state has to be my favourite movie of all time. no matter what my mood is it will always cheer me up. & no matter how many times i watch it i laugh & still get sentimental at parts.
    zach braff did an amazing job with the soundtrack. this song & all the other songs are absolutely amazing.
    it gives me the same feel as watching the movie. it can cheer me up instantly.
