lyrics

I’ve been on the run for many a year
Shackles on my hands tethered to my fear
I’ve been running from myself now I’m on the move again
Gone back to my old ways trying to pretend

It’s a long walk back to the place I left my heart
It’s a long walk back

Take me to the start back where I lost my way
The clouds were rolling in, all those shades of grey
Looking back on it now I’ve seen all my mistakes
Piling up with the dust I left in my wake

It’s a long walk back to the place I left my heart
It’s a long walk back

I’ve been lying to myself, I’ve been lying to you
It seems to be the way, it’s how I make it through
Now I’m back in this place where I’ve really always been
Can’t seem to figure out how to let go and when

It’s a long walk back to the place I left my heart
It’s a long walk back

Time is moving on, going faster every day
And everything we built is crumbling away
I’m standing in the dark, lonely on my side
On this empty street it’s impossible to hide
If I could have you back in my life again
I’d have known what I had
You were always my friend but

It’s a long walk back to the place I left my heart
It’s a long walk back
