THE LONGER ROAD

Pick up all your things and go away.
Dust off all your pretty words and find another friend.
And be a better man.

You took a lorry full of what I’ve sown.
You took my faith for all you could, you took my baby doll.
You took it all.

And in my heart, it hails.

You froze my heart but I kept my soul.
I’ll take the longer road

Cash, toys, silver coins. It’s all you took
A big wad of illusions, the cover of my book.
At night I know, you try to find, your way across the sea.
Your pockets weight you down so much.
It’s your own ghost, it’s not me

And it’s cold. In my heart, it hails.

You froze my heart but I kept my soul.
I’ll take the longer road
Because I know
