Retracing my steps when the season dried
My head out the window just to see the sight
Of my life passing me by
Well, how beautiful, the land sky
That brought my childhood dreams alive
And I laughed at the thought of every leaving

Oh, and it's been a long time since I've been home
And it's been a long, long, long, long time

I go winding down the roads just because I could
The bad-mouthed boy from the neighborhood
And I would grow into a ladly man
With a handful of trouble and a rocker's son
Oh, a little bit of fun never hurt no one
And I'd run from the thought of ever leaving

Oh and it's been a long time since I've been home
And it's been a long, long, long, long time
And it's been a long time since I've been home
And it's been a long, long, long, long, long time

Well, looking back on those yesterdays
It's easy to see why I felt that way
And today I've rediscovered
That the simple things that we have in life
Like the air you breathe and the stars up high can be my
Excuse for coming back

Oh and it's been a long time since I've been home
And it's been a long, long, long, long time
And it's been a long time since I've been home
And it's been a long, long
And it's been a long, long
And it's been a long time since I've been home
