Long Way From Home Lyrics

Long Way From Home (遥远的家) - The Lumineers

Written by:Wesley Schultz/Jeremy Fraites

Held on to hope like a noose like a rope

 

God and medicine take no mercy on him

 

Poisoned his blood and burned out his throat

 

Enough is enough he's a long way from home

 

Days of my youth wasted on a selfish fool

 

Who ran for the hills from the hand you were dealt

 

I flew far away as far as I could go

 

Your time is running out

 

And I'm a long way from home

 

Laid up in bed you were laid up in bed

 

Holding the pain like you're holding your breath

 

I prayed you could sleep sleep like a stone

 

You're right next to me

 

But you're a long way from home

 

Hospital gowns never fit like they should

 

We yelled at the nurse didn't do any good

 

More morphine the last words you moaned

 

At last I was sure

 

 

That you weren't far away from home
