about

In memory of Beth LaFleur

lyrics

You know your chances ain't good but you're smilin'
If I had your strength maybe I'd see the lining
It takes all I have just to hang on

I've lost count of these trips that we've made
And I hate that the doctors all know my first name
But they're buying time for me with you so I hang on

I never dreamed that a car ride with you
Is something I'd give it all up just to do... again

So we'll take the long way home
And baby we'll take it slow
Even if all I'm buying is five more minutes with you
We’ll take the long way home
I can't stand to let you go
If these miles together lead to the end of our road
I’m takin’ the long way home

The moment is here and the chances look good
And the pain of recovery is well-understood
And the life we'll live and the love we'll give
Is on the other side

But as he approached I could read in his eyes
Confused and defeated his eyes couldn't lie
He said, “I'm sorry, man, I don't know how to tell you.”

I never dreamed that a car ride with you
Is something I'd give it all up just to do... again

So we'll take the long way home
And baby we'll take it slow
Even if all I'm buying is five more minutes with you
We’ll take the long way home
I can't stand to let you go
If these miles together lead to the end of our road
I’m takin’ the long way home

I never dreamed that a car ride with you
Is something I'd give it all up just to do... again

So we'll take the long way home
And baby we'll take it slow
Even if all I'm buying is five more minutes with you
We’ll take the long way home
I can't stand to let you go
If these miles together lead to the end of our road
I’m takin’ the long way home
I’m takin’ the long way home
I’m takin’ the long way home
