The Long Way Here

I took the long way here,
And I need you now to just listen.
You know the finest wine has to take its time,
The paths of life don’t always rhyme,
And I’ve had a perfect vision,
Get clouded
And almost disappear.

I took the long way here.
At every crossroad I knew where you were.
But the old pain was my leader,
The wrong reasons always felt much better,
And even though I knew where you were,
I took the long way here.

Now I’m making my own second chances,
I’ve loosened up all those old defences,
So tell me the things that you never get tired of
And I’ll take you to the island where I’ve kept my love,
Take you to the island where I’ve kept my love,
Kept my love,
Kept my love,
My Love, My Love, My Love.

I took the long way here.
There’s no question about happiness,
I’m just gonna do what I do best,
And I’m staying here.

I love that island that I used to live on,
I love that island that I used to be,
But the long way here has made me over,
And now I can love with every part of me,
And I’m staying here.
I’m staying here.
I’m staying here.
