I haven't seen you in a month of Sundays

Ah, you look so good today

You're that instant rush of breeze

That shakes the pine combs from the trees

And blows the smoke of stale acquaintances away



This quiet town seems just the way we left it

When we loved not long ago

Though we know each street by heart

Let's take the maze of lanes from start

And ease ourselves along the paths we used to know



The long way home,

The long way home

Let's walk the long way home

Long after dark we'd stroll the park

Where hand in hand we'd roam past the shore

Where love would sure to foam

I'll take you back

The long way home



And so I love you like I loved this river

As it flows from then to there

Like the silent village pond

Like the rabbits far beyond

You are the answer to a not forgotten prayer



The long way home,

The long way home

Let's walk the long way home

Long after dark we'd stroll the park

Where hand in hand we'd roam past the shore

Where love would sure to foam

I'll take you back

The long way home
