Such A Long Way Home

Lyrics

I went on down to my favorite fishin' hole Brought a can of worms and my willow pole Well I never knew it was such a long way home My mom told me to be home around three I had no idea what would happen to me Well I never knew it was such a long way home The fish weren't biting but I didn't mind So I laid down to rest in the warm sunshine Woke with a start, the sun had gone down And I could not see a thing when I looked around I was chilled to the bone, scared through and through Heard the strangest noises, saw shadows move Felt a tug on my arm, thought it was my time But I woke up again with a fish on my line I cut the line as fast as I could Ran down the path that went through the woods Well I never knew it was such a long way home My mom said I was home early today I looked in her eyes and all I could say was I never knew it was such a long way home I never knew it was such a long way home

Lyrics

Well, I've got a ticket, to where God only knows Well, I've got a ticket, to where God only knows I'll follow those tracks as far as they may go Well I'll ride on that train all the way back home Chorus Take me to the engineer of my train Take me to the pilot of my plane Take me to the captain of my ship I'll sail that boat 'till the end of the trip Well, I've got a ticket, to where God only knows Well, I've got a ticket, to where God only knows I'll follow those tracks as far as they may go Well I'll ride on that train all the way back home

Story

Written after seeing a special on a tribe in South America and the encroachment of our civilization on them. They called us, younger brother.

Lyrics

Younger brother, your mother can't wait She feels your anger and it's sealing your fate And that is why she gave us this message for you Younger brother put down your arms You shed blood in the cities, you shed blood on the farms And that is why she gave us this message for you Chorus Oh younger brother there's no time to lose You're standing at the crossroads, which one will you choose Oh younger brother, will you put out the fire There are other ways to quench a thirst, than with selfish desire Younger brother, let us join hands And give thanks to the goddess of sky, water, and land And heed the message she asked us to give to you And heed the message she asked us to give to you

Story

A search for faith and hope.

Lyrics

What do you do when the thirst comes on so strong There's nothin to drink, nothing but drought for so long The ocean is deep but there's not a drop to drink And the desert is dry as a bone What we need is a well nearby A little bit closer to home Chorus on't you think we oughta find us some water There's a terrible thirst in every woman and man Don't you think we oughta find us some water We'll drink from the well as much as we can Cup your hands, take the first sip of the cure You'll wanna drink more, the allure is seductive for sure It'll sooth all your pain down to the bone It'll cure all heartache too Just one sip of the elixer of life Will make you feel brand new Chorus Bridge Don't ask why, drink it on down Don't be shy, go to town There's an endless supply, in the ground More than enough to go around

Lyrics

You're raising questions from waters so deep Expecting me to know just what to say But only you know what it is you seek Sometimes words of wisdom just get in the way Chorus So paint your picture any way you want Covering the canvas with your dreams Listen closely to your heart It cannot lie, says only what it means In the end it all comes down to this The secret of life is doing the best that you can 'Cause there's no such thing as a perfect man The specter of sorrow can steal your sight away And leave you longing for the light But time can't be borrowed, the dragon you must slay To banish forever the night Chorus You've got to take it to heart, make it a part of your plan The secret of life is doing the best that you can Face always forward, leave the past behind Stop to love along the way But if I've said too much, then pay me no mind Just remember these few words that I say The secret of life is doing the best that you can You've got to take it to heart, make it a part of your plan The secret of life is doing the best that you can 'Cause there's no such thing as a perfect man 'Cause there's no such thing as a perfect man

Story

A song about going to a favorite vacation spot.

Lyrics

The road always seems the darkest just before dawn Take another sip of coffee as I let out a yawn Packed our bags last night and headed on out the door On that all night ride down to Willoughby's shore So we ride along the western highway From the mountains down to the sea Ride along that western highway To the shores of Willoughby Can't remember the last time we were christened by the sea Made love by a full moon light, or stayed up until three These are a few of our favorite things These are the pleasures that Willoughby brings Chorus Oh Willoughby Oh Willoughby The sun cuts the water's edge awakening the land Pockets full of treasures that we picked up in the sand Can't think of better times or a better place to be Than walking hand in hand on the shores of Willoughby

Lyrics

I'm walking the edge with my mind on fire This is too real to be a dream How well I knew her doesn't matter now Things are never what they seem What makes a man do the things he does Well I'm sure that I can't say So I'm going down to the river tonight Try to wash my sins away Chorus When I said good-bye to that cold hearted woman I said good-bye to my soul When I said good-bye to that cold hearted woman I sacrificed my soul There's no use in running, what is done is done No regrets can change the deed But when she threw it all into my face She planted a vicious seed But I will not go to the gallows I'll do things my own way So I'm going down to the river tonight Try to wash my sins away Chorus W'oh, river wash my sins away W'oh, river wash my sins away I think of all the things that might have been Down by the river's edge I whisper her name just one more time As I tumble off the ledge As the river carries me downstream It's forgiveness for which I pray And as the procession is ending I'm not sure my sins have been washed away

Story

A humourus look at backyard shrines.

Lyrics

Mary's in the bathtub starin' into space She's wonderin' what she's doin' here in this place There's a chill in the air, the ground is so hard 'Cause Mary's in the bathtub in the back yard Chorus Oh Mary how'd you end up this way Was there some kind of reason for the price that you paid You're their inspiration some people would say 'Cause you stand there listening when they come to you and pray Mary how'd you end up this way She don't know how the hole was dug under the sky She don't know how the tub got there, she still don't know why She remembers wakin' up one day feeling the shock Frozen in place, just like a rock Minute by minute day after day She looks at the people passin' her way There's a pain in their hearts and a look in their eyes Some even talk to her but she can't reply She'd like her soul to run free she's like to run through the grass She'd like to go home and see her father at last But there's some kind of magic keeping her here And she can't even shed one single ear
