She was lost
And I thought I was found
Even so I tried
To bring her in...

She was young
And I had just begun
To learn that even
Losing men can win.

We went the long way
We went the long way
We went the long way...
Or maybe just the wrong way
I'll never know.

Overnight
We were shown the light
Neither of us knew
To look away...
So we burned
And far too late we learned
That lifetimes can't be lived out
In a day.

We went the long way
We went the long way
We went the long way...
Or maybe just the wrong way
I'll never know.

So, goodbye
At least me made the try
Something can be said for
Love that's pure.
If and when
We ever try again
One thing will be known to us
For sure...

We'll go the long way
We'll go the long way
We'll go the long way...
Or maybe just the wrong way
I'll never know.
