The Long Way Home

J.G.Thwaits

Nobody give a care for us
so why don't we fall back to the dust?
nobody gave a warm remark
so let's slip away into the dark

when all of our fears
are just skin and bones
why don't we take the long way home tonight?

I used to be afraid of the dark
till sunburn and scorn
hit on the mark
sometimes the friendliest places you find
are off of the path
hidden in time

when all of our fears
are just skin and bones
why don't we take the long way home tonight?

now I'm not trying to paint a picture that's hopeless and dark
I wouldn't start
I'm only trying now to get us both where we belong
for right or for wrong
and they'll keep singing that song
but we don't care

'cause nobody give a care for us
so why don't we fall back to the dust?
nobody gave a warm remark
so let's slip away into the dark

when all of our fears
are just skin and bones
why don't we take the long way home tonight?
