Monkees, The - Long Way Home Lyrics




The other night I took the long way home
Out past the old schoolyard
It's funny how you keep it all inside
Dreams they do die hard

I closed my eyes and I could see your face
Somewhere back in time
One summer night a million miles ago
Back when you were mine

Say yes, say no, say that I'm grabbing at shadows
But don't carve the words in stone
I know it's late
But can't you see I was only
Taking the long way home

Sometimes its easy to get all wrapped up
In trying to be free
And all those dreams I sailed away to find
Were right in front of me

Say yes, say no, say that I'm grabbing at shadows
But don't carve the words in stone
One of these days
You're gonna see I was only
Taking the long way home

Although the letters stopped many years ago
I'll show you even time could not keep this heart
from letting go

The other night I took the long way home
Out past the old schoolyard
It's funny how you keep it all inside
Dreams they do die hard

Say yes, say no, say that I'm grabbing at shadows
But don't leave me here all alone
One of these days
You're gonna see I was only
Taking the long way home

Say yes, say no
But don't leave me here all alone
One of these days
You're gonna see I was only
Taking the long way home
[repeat]

    I own the cassette copy of *Pool It*. It is my favorite Monkees album, always will be.

    If the right artist remade this, I think it could be a hit even today.
