"Long Way Home" as written by Alexander William Gaskarth, Michael Gordon Clifford, John William Feldmann and Ashton Fletcher Irwin....
We're taking the long way home
Taking the long way home

Take me back to the middle of nowhere
Back to the place only you and I share
Remember all the memories?
The fireflies and make-believe
Kicking back in the old school yard
Singing songs on our guitars
This is our reality
Crazy stupid, you and me

We know this is the way it's supposed to be

So we're taking the long way home
'Cause I don't wanna be wasting my time alone
I wanna get lost and drive forever with you,
Talkin' bout nothing, yeah, whatever, baby
So we're taking the long way home tonight

We're taking the long way home
We're taking the long way home
Taking the long way home

Now we're stuck in the middle of nowhere
Yeah, you know we took our time to get there
We're hiding out in a dream
Catching fire like kerosene
And you know I'd never let you down
'Til the sun comes up, we can own this town
Something like make-believe
Living in a movie scene

I know this is the way it's supposed to be

So we're taking the long way home
'Cause I don't wanna be wasting my time alone
I wanna get lost and drive forever with you,
Talkin' bout nothing, yeah, whatever, baby
So we're taking the long way home

Hitting every red light
Kissing at the stop signs, darling
Green Day's on the radio
And everything is alright
Now we're turning off the headlights, darling
We're just taking it slow

So we're taking the long way home
'Cause I don't wanna be wasting my time alone
I wanna get lost and drive forever with you,
Talkin' bout nothing, yeah, whatever, baby
So we're taking the long way home

Hitting every red light
Kissing at the stop signs, darling
Green Day's on the radio
And everything is alright
Now we're turning off the headlights, darling
We're just taking it slow

We're taking the long way home
We're taking the long way home
We're taking the long way home

    Song MeaningThis song is about wanting to spending every last minute with that one person and remembering the good times before you leave off to somewhere. That's why they are taking the "long way home".

    My InterpretationI guess this song is about just having teenage easy fun with someone you love. Like a sort of "carpe diem", living the moment, but not doing anything in particular. Simply a journey going home taking the longest way, laughing, remembering the old times and singing along to a Green Day song on the radio.
