It’s a long long road home
If you don’t know where you’re going
You never get the feeling
That you’re almost there

Every bend could be it
But then disappointment
Follows you
Damn near everywhere

You should really stop looking
They say “enjoy the journey”
But you were never one
For that hippy shit

It’s gonna be a tough night
Again tonight
You’ll just put your head down
And get through it

When we met I was 20
Didn’t know where I was going
I didn’t need nothing
But a mystery

You kept my bed warm
But every morning
You were

So I stopped calling
Wished you luck in love
Went on with my life
And settled down

Less than a year later
I had a baby
And thought of you
When I saw his smile

Everyone tells me
You’ll never be happy
Well maybe happy’s overrated

But you don’t fool me
You get pleasure
From loving and leaving a woman
Every day

Without disappointment
You’d lose your compass
Be a leaf on the wind
In a hurricane

You live on bad luck
And the long road
Is the only one
That knows your name

You live on bad luck
And the long road
Is the only one
That will ever know your name
