Don't try to explain
I've been here before the phone calls and the letters of loved ones
Always prying and implying that when
The stormy sides of dreams arrived
I feel the consequences hit but I

I've had enough
I've had too much
The feeling strains me
I've had too much
The feeling drains me
With so much at stake

Leaving behind
Shortcuts to find
Long way home
Leaving behind
Shortcuts to find
The long way

I've tried to escape
I'm drifting from shore
The bow breaks from the weight of the loved ones
Leave us gliding
Forward and flying out when
The sunny sides of dreams have died
I feel the consequences lift but I

I've had enough
I've had too much
The feeling strains me
I've had too much
The feeling drains me
So much at stake

Leaving behind
Shortcuts to find
Long way home
Leaving behind
Shortcuts to find
The long way

I've tried to explain
But the right words feel wrong
Big mistakes for the well when the love's gone
Now there's crying and goodbyeing
No

I've had enough
I've had too much
The feeling strains me
I've had too much
The feeling drains me
With so much at stake

Leaving behind
Shortcuts to find
Long way home
Leaving behind
Shortcuts to find
The long way home

I'm leaving behind
Shortcuts to find
Long way
