A Long Road Home

This song is by The Boys Of Summer and appears on the album What It's All About (2010).

I've been hiding out in a bottle for three whole years now
And I want to get out, yeah, I wanna get out
But reality keeps telling me
That my humanity is gonna get a check now

And no this was not a plan, it was just a gift
It was just a shooting star and I grabbed hold of it
No it was not a test, it was just a space for me to reflect
A place and time where I had no regret

And I feel like I'm running now
Like I'm heading for a long road home
Yeah, I feel like I'm living now
Like I'm heading for a long road home

And I've been struggling for years
To keep my head up off the ground
And all I have got to show for
This is all that I am left with

My past due bills and I've got friends
A depleted account and these string stained hands
But I've seen more than most
From coast to coast living on the road

Tick, tock, a limerick under your breath
Its four words, yeah, I know what you're saying
"I'm always coming down 'cause I am"

Well, I said, "Oh no, I won't go all the way home
As long as you're here"
Home, a place where I feel, where I feel
