LONG STRETCH OF ROAD

[Verse]

I came into this world 

a demon and a ghost 

wandering from place to place, 

never found a happy home. 

My legs, it's plain to see, 

have proudly furnished me. 

But my shoes have lost their rubber 

and I'm far away from home.  

 

[Chorus] 

This long stretch of road 

is all I've ever known. 

It's all that I can do 

to come back home to you. 

Please don't count my sins. 

It will all come 'round again. 

And I'll keep walking 

'till I come home to you. 

 

[Verse]

This modern highway

that spans to the sea

won't stop for you

and it won't stop for me.

As it moves round and round 

I know you hear the sound 

of my feet that are dragging

while I look for higher ground.  

[Chorus] 

This long stretch of road 

is all I've ever known. 

It's all that I can do 

to come back home to you. 

Please don't count my sins. 

It will all come 'round again. 

And I'll keep walking 

​'till I come home to you. 

[Bridge]

Journey to the end of night; 

I lost my sight. 

Weatherman's in a coma,

no strength to fight. 

And if anyone plans to argue 

with the mandatory curfew 

there's seminars at the hotel 

the lawmen have moved into. 

[Verse]

This modern highway

that spans to the sea

won't stop for you

and it won't stop for me.

As it moves round and round 

I know you hear the sound 

of my love that's been buried 

like a highway underground. 

[Chorus] 

And this long stretch of road 

is all I've ever known. 

It's all that I can do 

to come home to you. 

Please don't count my sins. 

It will all come back again. 

And I'll keep walking 

(like a dead man) 

'till I come home to you.
