long walk home lyrics – robbie williams

“long walk home”

baby
you can pack away the moon
and pour away the ocean
you can take apart the sun
and run from everyone
you can blow out all the stars
but i know the day will come
when love unchains your soul
and you’ll take the long walk home

h*llo baby
haven’t seen you for a while
there’s a shadow on your face
a lie in your smile
you sent the world away
everything’s just fine
but there’s a cry for help
behind your eyes

baby
you can pack away the moon
and pour away the ocean
you can take apart the sun
and run from everyone
you can blow out all the stars
but i know the day will come
when love unchains your soul
and you’ll take the long walk home

another 5 a.m.
the cancer crawls
and you’re pressed against
an invisible wall
and all the bottles are dry
and the cd’s stuck
keep hearing johnny sing
all you need is love

baby
you can pack away the moon
and pour away the ocean
you can take apart the sun
and run from everyone
you can blow out all the stars
but i know the day will come
when love unchains your soul
and you’ll take the long walk home

and you can sleep the longest night
i believe you’ll wake in time
to open the window wide
and breathe the brilliant light

baby
you can pack away the moon
and pour away the ocean
you can take apart the sun
and run from everyone
you can blow out all the stars
but i know the day will come
when love unchains your soul
and you’ll take the long walk home

baby
you can light the fires of h*ll
and wrestle with the angels
you can pull down heaven’s blue
and tear yourself in two
before we blow each candle out
reach into the dark
there’ll be a hand to hold
and we’ll take the long walk home

baby gonna walk so slow
through the clear white snow
i won’t let your soul be broken

baby gonna walk so slow
through the clear white snow
i won’t let your soul be broken
yeah
