Did You Just Take The Long Way Home

(Colin Hay/Michael Georgiades)

You always know where you can find me
I’m up here where the air is pure and true
The cleverness of words just binds me
They won’t help me to get over you

And maybe you got lost at the five ways
Took a wrong turn just like aways
Or did you just take the long way home?

I hear the wind blow through the pine trees
I watch the frozen lights come into view
The stars above they don’t align me
They only shine a dim light on you

And maybe you got lost at the five ways
Took a wrong turn just like aways
Or did you just take the long way home?

I wanna hear you walk up right behind me
But the dawn is come and it’s done me in

And could it be that tou don’t love me
For who I am or what I could be
And from where I am it’s such a long way down

So maybe you got lost at the five ways
Took a wrong turn just like aways
Or did you just take the long way home?
Did you just take the long way home?
Or did you just take the long way home?
