Long Road Home

I've been clearing the minefield
for the long road home
Boxing the troubles
in plastic and bubbles
Setting the temperature low
Wrapping up well for the snow

I've been hearing my story
on the jungle drums
Everyone wiser
is now my advisor
Telling me what I should do
When all that I needed was you

I could write you some letters but it's the words I lack
I could be so much better if you'd just take me back
I could sing below the balcony
I could bring the seeds of harmony
for you and you alone
on the long road home

I've been fearing the moment
now we finally meet
feeling fainthearted
now the party has started
Leaving my gift at the door
The sailor is coming ashore

I could write you some letters but it's the words I'm missing
I could be so much better if it was you that I was kissing
I could sing below the balcony
I could bring the seeds of harmony
for you and you alone
on the long road home
