I Took The Long Way Home

The events in my life are responsible for shaping me in so many ways, however only recently did I come to realize that my reaction to those things is what truly shaped me … and held me back from actually living. It’s amazing to look back at your life and see the time wasted, the things screwed-up and opportunities that were just simply squandered.

Triumph, however, is realizing that you have the choice to change that, starting today. I’ve vowed to live my life by touching others now. Through writing, teaching and sharing I hope that my stories and my years of misery (brought on by myself) will help others to realize that life can and will go on as soon as you decide that it will. God speed. May you find your way ‘home’ too.

The words to the song are posted below. How wise are they!

So you think you’re a Romeo
playing a part in a picture-show
Take the long way home
Take the long way home

Cos you’re the joke of the neighborhood
Why should you care if you’re feeling good
Take the long way home
Take the long way home

But there are times that you feel you’re part of the scenery
all the greenery is comin’ down, boy
And then your wife seems to think you’re part of the
furniture oh, it’s peculiar, she used to be so nice.

When lonely days turn to lonely nights
you take a trip to the city lights
And take the long way home
Take the long way home

You never see what you want to see
Forever playing to the gallery
You take the long way home
Take the long way home

And when you’re up on the stage, it’s so unbelievable,
unforgettable, how they adore you,
But then your wife seems to think you’re losing your sanity,
oh, calamity, is there no way out?

Does it feel that you life’s become a catastrophe?
Oh, it has to be for you to grow, boy.
When you look through the years and see what you could
have been oh, what might have been,
if you’d had more time.

So, when the day comes to settle down,
Who’s to blame if you’re not around?
You took the long way home
You took the long way home………..
