lyrics

your eyes look a little bit colder
since the last time you came by
the embers smoulder on the roadsides in your mind
no fire now, just those embers
of the things you left behind
no fire now, only stones you turned
for things you couldn’t find

you’ve come a long way down
you’ve come the long way around
you’ve come a long way down this family road
are you happy now?
are you happier now?
are you happy now that you’re alone?

the kids are fully grown
the wife has flown
heavy heart and heavy bones
in a house that’s not a home no more
and you know you got it wrong
don’t let it lay you down when you should move on.

you look a little bit older
and I know it’s on your mind
but you should’ve told her
should’ve said you’d walk the line
but you were unkind, too many times
and your reasons were too unclear
you were unkind
gave her way too many reasons to disappear

you’ve come a long way down
you’ve come the long way around
but you’ve come a long way down this family road
are you happy now?
are you happier now?
are you happy now you’re alone?

and you know you got it wrong
with your foolish pride and your broken song.
