Long Way Home in the Cold

If I seem unnerved,
and I don’t look you in the eye
It’s because I’m nervous
you made me so

We hit the beaten track
with no place to go
As long as we have each other
we don’t need a destination

It’s too far from home
to be having second thoughts
yeah, because

It’s a long way home in the cold
I have never felt so old
It’s a long way home in the cold
or so I’ve been told
If we never make it
we had our chance

I keep harping on
like a broken record
I could never just calm down
and let us take our course

You ask a lot of me
though I’m just the same
I wanted to be clear
and you kept our path vague

We’re too far from home
to give up already
because

It’s a long way home in the cold
I have never felt so old
It’s a long way home in the cold
or so I’ve been told
If we never make it
we had our chance

I don’t want to be second prize
but I promise I won’t be overbearing
trying to control the situation
I’d rather let it slide

Because if you knew
If you knew
If you knew

It’s a long way home in the cold
or so I’ve been told
If we never make it
we had our chance

The End
