long way back home lyrics – barenaked ladies

word by steven page & ed robertson. music by ed robertson

it’s a long way back home
to pack up and leave again
together alone
you without me again

it’s a long way back home
and a long way back here again
i should have known
that you would just bleed again

for the first time i knew what to do
the first time it’s just me and you
and then the worst timing i ever knew
i have to go
i already know

it’s a long way back home
to feel like i’m far away
how should i know
what goes on here anyway?

for the first time i knew what to do
the first time it’s just me and you
and then the worst timing i ever knew
i have to go
i already know

why not spend a week on a star
no time, he can’t get there by car
when we get some time on our own
we’ll plan our next year alone

it’s a long way back home
from just about anywhere
’cause once through the door
i’m not even halfway there

for the first time i knew what to do
the first time it’s just me and you
and then the worst timing i ever knew
i have to go
i already know

it’s a long way back home
