the long way lyrics – dan fogelberg

she was lost
and i thought i was found
even so i tried
to bring her in

she was young
and i had just begun
to learn that even
losing men can win

we went the long way
we went the long way
we went the long way
or maybe just the wrong way
i’ll never know

overnight
we were shown the light
neither of us knew
to look away

so we burned
and far too late we learned
that lifetimes can’t be lived out
in a day

we went the long way
we went the long way
we went the long way
or maybe just the wrong way
i’ll never know

so, goodbye
at least we made the try
something can be said
for love that’s pure

if and when
we ever try again
one thing will be known
to us for sure

we’ll go the long way
we’ll go the long way
we’ll go the long way
or maybe just the wrong way
i’ll never know, i’ll never know
