The Long Road

This song is by Dougie MacLean and appears on the album On A Wing And A Prayer (1981).

Tonight I feel so far away
High up on some mountain with nothing to say
And time without meaning is making me sad
To think of the good times a friend and I once had

Someone is crying for somebody's pain is too much to bear
Someone is crying for pain which just isn't there
Tomorrow will be different I didn't really know

The long road's much shorter when you want to travel slow
Yes, the long road's much shorter when you want to travel slow

I don't believe you who call out in rhyme
You've got what you wanted now leave while there's time
No one will forgive you there's no one will dare
Your past is our future and it just isn't there

Friends that you need walk away when you cry
You don't want that much but they don't really try
And when you're not looking they'll all gather round
They'll pick all your flowers and dig all your ground
