"Long Way to the Water" as written by Mark Jeremy Seymour, Barry John Joseph Palmer, Douglas James Falconer, Michael Bernard Waters, John Albert Howard, John Melville Lee Archer, Robert David Miles and Jeremy Stuart...
Leaving the old world tonight
Into the darkness of the new
Don't spook the horses
While the sun still shines
They're tired, but they'll be getting through

In the desert they can smell the water
Their shadows ever growing tall
Our laughter echoes down the valley tonight
We'll make it home before the fall

It's a long way to the water
It's a long way there, but I don't mind
But I'm leaving your lost world behind

Alone together in the moonlight
There's only one way we could go
So lead me slowly on my broken pony
She's got the faith to let me know

It's a long way to the water
It's a long way there, but I don't mind
'Cos we can't go back, and we can't stand still
So we're leaving the world behind... behind...

It's a long way to the water
It's a long way there but I don't mind
Oh we can't go back, and we can't stand still
So we're leaving this world behind

It's a long way to the water
It's a long way there but I don't mind
Oh we can't go back, and we can't stand still
So we're leaving this lost world behind

It's a long way to the water
It's a long way

It's a long way

It's a long way
