Little River Band - It's A Long Way There Lyrics




Hey, everybody, yeah, don't you feel that there's something

People on their own are getting nowhere
I'm on the road to see
If anything is anywhere or waiting, just for me

Everynight I walk around the city
Seems like I'll never know
That feeling of being together when I go

And it's a long way there
It's a long way to where I'm going
And it's a long way there
It's a long way to where I'm going

Hey, everybody, don't you feel that there's something
But you know in a moment it is gone
I live for the day when I can hear people saying
That they know and they care for everyone

But I feel like I've been here for the whole of my life
Never knowing home

It's a long way, it's a long, long, long way there
I'm gonna keep on tryin', I'm gonna keep on tryin', yeah
I'm gonna keep on tryin', keep on tryin'

Been away from home for such a long time
And got to know this town
But I don't seem to matter much to anyone who's around
Is there anybody around

Everynight I walk around the city
Seems like I'll never know
The feeling of being together when I go

And it's a long way there
It's a long way to where I'm going
And it's a long way there
It's a long way to where I'm going

Everybody knows it's a long way there
Oh, everybody knows it's a long way there
Mmm, it's a long way

Driving around's kind of getting me down and I know, and I know
It's a long long way there
It's such a long long way, long way

Hey, everybody, yeah, don't you feel that there's something
Feel it, feel it
Hey, everybody, yeah, don't you feel that there's something

  4. Steve Phillips

    Takes me back to my childhood in Australia. The sun and the dust, meat pies and Peter's Icecream. The smell of burnt eucalyptus bush and the freedom we had to run amok and enjoy ourselves.

    Dr. James Olack

    ......and enjoy a vegamite sandwich.....and a balut with a warm beer, eh?

    All of this is heading to
    Write it down
    A continuing belief

  23. Edd Kelley

    Break Through a new life is going forward

  24. Geoff Campbell

    This is the shortened radio edition. The album version is eight and half minutes of musical joy. An extra four minutes of Ric Formosa’s magical guitar work. As an Aussie music guru used to say, do yourself a favour, and check it out.

    muse ik

    Yeah the long version is the best indeed. Hi from france to all music lovers 🥰

  25. jessica castillo

    God bless look over us everywhere in world

  26. Mick C

    I can't believe I saw a comment on here saying they were underrated. This band was huge worldwide and one of if not the best Aussie bands to break into America.

    Aubrey MAC

    I took the comment to mean they are not recognized enough for their awesome music. Love them

    Dr. James Olack

    INXS kicked ass......for a while, anyway. Always loved "Devil Inside". Still do.....gotta turn that bitch up to 11.

  27. Raziel Chernerko

    Will Ferrell from "The Other Guys" brought me here. Thanks LRB!

    romeo romero

    Yeah would have never heard Pablo cruise if it wasn't for him randomly wearing a shirt of thiers in Step Brothers

  28. Melsie D

    Lived it. Adore the music! Shine on Little River Band.

  29. whittaker727

    Hey everybody yeah, don't you feel that there's something?
    Feel it, feel it?
    Hey everybody yeah, don't you feel that there's something?
    People on their own are getting nowhere,
    I am on the road to see,
    If anything is anywhere and waiting, just for me.
    Every night I walk around the city.
    Seems like I'll never know,
    That feeling of being together when I go.
    And it's a long way there, it's a long way to where I'm going,
    And it's a long way there, it's a long way to where I'm going.
    Hey everybody, don't you feel that there's something, but you know
    in a moment it is gone.
    I live for the day when I can hear people saying that they know and
    they care for everyone
    But I feel like I've been here for the whole of my life, never knowing
    home.
    It's a long way.
    It's a long, long, long way there,
    I'm gonna keep on tryin',
    I'm gonna keep on tryin', yeah,
    I'm gonna keep on tryin',
    I'm gonna keep on tryin', ah!
    Been away from home for such a long time,
    And got to know this town,
    But I don't seem to matter much to anyone, who's around
    Is there anybody around?
    Every night I walk around the city,
    Seems like I'll never know,
    The feeling of being together when I go.
    And it's a long way there, it's a long way to where I'm going,
    And it's a long way there, it's a long way to where I'm going.

  38. Joe Brady

    Such an underappreciated group. Superb music!

  39. Paul Evans

    Slept on them. Found this song on my playlist someone made for me. Great song. Any suggestions on another hit from them?

    Jayden Wirkus

    Night owls

  40. I Quit

    They get painted as a lame soft rock group... This is some serious musical pleasure!
    Awesome bass line, killer guitar work, amazing harmonies, haunting key changes... A Perfect Song..

    Geoff Campbell

  56. bansheemania

    Just learned of LRB liken1 yr ago..
    . GUITAR RIFFS ARE ALMOST P.FLOYD ..33 Yr. Old and still learning of cool bands... I was raised with pink floyd the doors and the grateful dead pink floyd number one
    Can't forget supertramp, I Went THROUGH 3or 4 the Wall on double check cassettes... Then CDs came out probably in 92 and I probably went through at least 10 copies throughout my life rock on peace out!!☮️😵😵🙃

  57. L P

    Some would call this POP, not so. This is ROCK & ROLL!!

    Cezar Spînu

    same, I don't get why it's called pop rock, seems pretty r&l for me

  58. Scott Burton

    Their breakthrough release from the fall of 1976-Fantastic song!

  59. ANabham

    Underrated Aussie band

    George Rivera

    They're world record sales price otherwise. Their problems stem from unresolvable personality differences, direction and creativity, plus everyone wanted to be the lead. A creative and excellent band. What most fans don't know is that LRB hired and fired over 30 musicians and singers until they fizzed out even though most people have heard their greatest hits many times.

    Love God & Neighbor.

    Wow !!!
    Australia ???
    *Awesome.*

    I always figured they were from Texas or Alabama. I'm shocked! In a good way. 🤓󾓦🍀

  60. Charlie Mahoney

    Good times
