Roger Hodgson – Take The Long Way Home-R.O.P. lyrics

So you think you're a Romeo
You're playing a part in a picture show
Well, take the long way home
Take the long way home

But you're the joke of the neighborhood
Why should you care if you're feeling good?
You take the long way home
Take the long way home

But there are times that you feel
You're part of the scenery
All the greenery is coming down, boy

And then your wife seems to think
You're part of the furniture
Oh, it's peculiar, she used to be so nice

When lonely days turn to lonely nights
You take a trip to the city lights
And take the long way home
Take the long way home

You never see what you wanna see
Forever playing to the gallery
You take the long way home
Take the long way home

When you're up on stage
It's so unbelievable
Unforgettable, how they adore you

But then your wife seems to think
You're losing your sanity, oh, calamity
Oh, is there no way out?

Does it feel that your life's
Become a catastrophe?
Oh, it has to be for you to grow, boy

And when you look through the years
And see what you could have been
Oh, what you might have been
If you'd had more time

So when the day comes to settle down
Well, who's to blame if you're not around?
You took the long way home
Take the long way home

Take the long way home
Take the long way home
Take the long way home

Take the long way home
Take the long way, take the long way
Take the long way home

You took the long way home
Long way home, long way home
You took the long way home

You took the long way home
Took the long way home
You took the long way home
