Take The Long Way Home

“So you think you’re a Romeo,
playing a part in a picture-show.
Take the long way home.

‘Cause you’re the joke of the neighborhood,
why should you care if you’re feeling good.
Take the long way home.

But there are times that you feel you’re part of the scenery,
all the greenery is comin’ down, boy.
And then your wife seems to think you’re part of the
furniture oh, it’s peculiar, she used to be so nice.

When lonely days turn to lonely nights,
you take a trip to the city lights
and take the long way home.

You never see what you want to see,
forever playing to the gallery.
You take the long way home.

And when you’re up on the stage, it’s so unbelievable,
Oh unforgettable, how they adore you,
But then your wife seems to think you’re losing your sanity,
Oh, calamity, is there no way out?

Does it feel that your life’s become a catastrophe?
Oh, it has to be for you to grow , boy.
When you look through the years and see what you could
have been oh, what you might have been,
If you’d had more time.

So, when the day comes to settle down,
Who’s to blame if you’re not around?
You took the long way home”
