Lyrics

Well I stumbled in the darkness
I'm lost and alone
though I said I'd go before us
and show the way back home
is there a light up ahead
I can't hold on very long
forgive me pretty baby but
I always take the long way home

money's just something you throw
off the back of a train
I got a head full of lightning
a hat full of rain
I know that I said
I'd never do it again
I love you pretty baby but
I always take the long way home

I put food on the table
and a roof over our head
but I'd trade it all tomorrow
for the highway instead
watch your back
keep your eyes shut tight
your love's the only thing I've ever known
one thing's for sure pretty baby
I always take the long way home

you know I love you baby
more than the whole wide world
you are my woman
you know you are my pearl
let's go out past the party lights
where we can finally be alone
come with me and we can
take the long way home
