lyrics

"Long Ride Home"

You and me
Will always be
Dreaming of places we'll never ever get to see
Like Indonesia or Zanzibar
Every night we'd end up at a local bar
Somebody told me don't stare at horizons
Unless you are ready to run
So let's save our money and buy a car
So we could drive all the way across America

One day closer till my number comes
We gonna keep on burning till the night is gone
It's a long ride home

We drove down to Mississippi, past a bus of hippies
Drinkin' 40's and rolling up some sticky icky
Under the stars, or maybe even Mars
Muscle cars are smokin' up the boulevard
You look pretty, out in the city
You said you love me and there's no place that you wanna go alone

One day closer till my number comes
We gonna keep on burning till the night is gone
It's a long ride home

So, take me away
Take me away
Take me away...

I say, one day closer till my number comes
We gonna keep on burning till the night is gone
It's a long ride home
