lyrics

on the long ride home
take me to where I can no longer roam
not down the painted street
where the hidden love inside me grieves
not where my heart would fly
only for my soul to die
but where desire ends
where the pain of a lifetime mends

the last time I saw the light of the morning
hanging over the horizon's edge
was the last time I'd felt you fade
but as the sun swept to dusk returning
to the night from which it came
you returned again, a shade

on the long ride home
take me to where I can no longer roam
not down the painted street
where the hidden love inside me grieves
not where my heart would fly
only for my soul to die
but where desire ends
where the pain of a lifetime mends

and as you swept over me like nightfall
hanging over the heavens above
I could only look on and wonder
how is it you call me home to hell, love,
like a man possessed and won?
how do you speak to me like the thunder?

and if you should come one night returning
where I've long since passed and gone
stay a while, you won't find me
until the midday sun is burning
and your shadow pales and fades
like the last hope that binds me

on the long ride home
take me to where I can no longer roam
not down the painted street
where the hidden love inside me grieves
not where my heart would fly
only for my soul to die
but where desire ends
where the pain of a lifetime mends
