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
