Passenger "The Long Road" lyrics

The Long Road

We've walked the long road and you've worn it wellYou stitched yourself up when you fellKeep your memories in jars,Carry secrets in scarsBeneath your shell.

You've seen some good days, and some bad ones tooYou weave through fashion and trendYou've seen a sun rise on an ocean blue,You've seen it set for the dearest of friends

You found faith but you, chose to doubt itYou found love but you, left without itAnd now you don't want, to talk about it

You travelled down through foreign lands,Touched mountain tops and golden sand,Seen pyramids and temples made of stoneKeep seashells in a cashmere scarf,A treasured book of photographsIn every single one you stand alone

You've seen Vienna and the Berlin wall,As you watched the decades fallThe letters that you wrote never made it home.Your birthdays flew past like June,With Christmas days in hotel roomsAnd new years eve with people you don't know

You built friendships but they, sailed without youYou never meant it and that's why, they doubt youThey don't ever talk about you

You're older than you used to be,The mirror weaves a tapestryOf lines that dance and shimmer 'round your eyesYou stare back at a man, forever holding out his handAs if the answer's going to fall out of the sky

But the penny never dropped,And no man has ever stopped time from flying by
