"Take the Long Way Home" as written by Richard Davies and Roger Hodgson....
So you think you're a Romeo
Playing a part in a picture show
Take the long way home
Take the long way home

'Cause you're the joke
Of the neighborhood
Why should you care?

If you're feeling good
Take the long way home
Take the long way home

But there are times that you feel
You're part of the scenery
All the greenery is coming down boy
And then your wife seems to think
You're part of the furniture
Oh, it's peculiar, she used to be so nice

When lonely days turn to lonely nights
You take a trip to the city lights
And take the long way home
Take the long way home

You never see what you want to see
Forever playing to the gallery
You take the long way home
Take the long way home

And when you're up on stage
It's so unbelievable
Unforgettable, how they adore you
But then your wife seems to think
You're losing your sanity
Oh, calamity, is there no way out

Well, does it feel that your life's become a catastrophe?
Oh, it has to be for you to grow boy
And when you look through the years
And see what you could have been
Oh, what you might have been if you'd had more time?

So when the day comes
To settle down
Well who's to blame
If you're not around
You took the long way home
Took the long way home
