Diamond Rio – Long Way Back lyrics

Sitting in a cafe at the corner of Broad and Grand
Stirring up old memories and the coffee in my hand
The waitress stopped and asked me
Honey do you know what you want
I had to stop myself from telling her the truth
What I really need is another chance with you
But this temper train I'm on just ran away too fast
It's a long, long, way back to you baby
It's a long, long, way back

The neon clock is humming showing sign of wear
I've lost all sense of time since I've been sitting here
The waitress asked again
Is there something else you need
I need to take the hands off that clock above my head
Reset the time and take back everything I said
If I could turn around, then I would erase my tracks
But it's a long, long way back, to you baby
It's a long, long way back

It is a lonely road a fool travels down
I guess I oughta know 'cause that's where I'm headed now
And it's a long, it's a long, way back

Sitting at the cafe just Ruby Lee and me
I get feeling she's waiting on me to leave
She stopped askin' hours ago if I know what I want

Yeah but it's a long, long way back, to you baby
It's a long, long way back
I miss you darlin'
It's a long, long way back
