Long way from home

Sometimes I must admit

I don’t think It was worth it

When I get lonely and cold

Then I remembered, your sin

.

You tainted our Sundays pew

And I just don’t have it

Inside me now to forgive you

Not till I find, where I’m going

.

Broken golden promises

Used dirty rings to sell

Nothing worth me keeping

When keeping really meant nothing

.

A dozen times or so

I swear, I nearly turned around

Ready to accept all the blame

Just to keep from driving- on

.

You broke my heart- selfishly

Made it hard to breath now and then

Wrecked my mind and our dreams

I’m leaving, just to try and forget

.

Going wherever home don’t reside

Where the linger of your scent

Gets lost before my heart gets a whiff

One more mile closer, bound to nowhere

.

Some place on the other side

Where the sun shines on greener

Lord knows I’ll make it just fine if-

Your shadow doesn’t follow…me there

.
