Don't know what time it is, I've been up for way too long
And I'm too tired to sleep
I call my mother on the phone, she wasn't home,
And now I'm wondering the street
I've been a fool, I've been cruel to myself
I've been hanging onto nothing
When nothing could be worse than hanging on
And something tells me there must be
Something better than all this

I've fallen many times in love and every time
It's been with the wrong man
Still I'm out there living one day at a time
And doing the best I can
'cause we've all made mistakes
That seem to lead us astray
But every time they helped to get us where we are today
And that's a good a place as any
And it's probably where we're best off anyway

It's a long and rugged road
And we don't now where it's headed
But we know it's going to get us where we're going
And when we find what we're looking for
We'll drop these bags and search no more
''cause it's going to feel like heaven when we're home
It's going to feel like heaven when we're home

There's no such thing as perfect,
And if there is we'll fnd it when we're good and dead
Trust me I've been looking
Bu tonight I think I'll go and take a bath instead
And then maybe I'll walk a while
And feel the earth beneath me
They say if you stop looking
It doesn't matter if you find it
And whose to say that even if I did
It's what I'm really looking for

It's a long and rugged road
And we don't now where it's headed
But we know it's going to get us where we're going
And when we find what we're looking for
We'll drop these bags and search no more
''cause it's going to feel like heaven when we're home
It's going to feel like heaven when we're home
