Lyrics

I make my way from her bedside
To the door gonna take some rest
How these days draw on pushing us along
Beyond what we’d ever expect
He looks at me, light in his eyes
Sayin’ 59 years went by so quickly
Make sure you take the long way, the long way home
The long way home

This country road is so quiet
On a sticky Iowa night
Fireflies dance in the moonlit sky
To the orchestra of nightlife on the prairie
35 years ridin’ this road
Drivin’ faster with every decade
But tonight I take the long way, the long way home
The long way home, the long way home
The long way home

Here I sit, silence
Stillness cuts to the bone
I count your breath, the rise and fall
Space of nothing in between
I am a witness
To this amazing grace
As the flesh prepares for release
All the years on your hands
Dances you danced
Babies you carried to life
All the hearts you healed
The songs you yield
And the afghans crocheted over time
These are the patterns, delicate and rough
These are the stories you give to us
As you take the long way home
The long way home, the long way home
The long way home, the long way home
Repeat
