lyrics

Coming in to the airport, late in the day
Someone's here with a car & a hug, but my mind is miles away
And it's too late to deny it, too late to run
I'm overdressed, my suitcase is heavy & I'm standing in the sun

Long ride home
Long day ahead
It's been a long, long time coming
But I'm impatient, gotta be careful where I tread

First flick of a light switch, in an empty house
Burns loneliness in like a brand
Got a callous, got a headache, got a recurring dream
Gotta push past it, there's too much to do, there's too much at stake
You wait in your tower, not far away
I know how it feels, to be counting the days
But I cannot promise, what I cannot see
And I'm sorry, I'm so sorry, I never meant to trample your dreams

Long way to go
Long days ahead
It's been a long, long time coming
But I'm impatient, gotta be careful where I tread

Long way to go
Long days ahead
I know, I know it'll take a long, long time
But you gotta, you gotta be careful... careful where you tread...
