Hard Way Home

Album: Bear Creek (2012)
  • Oooh
    I sometimes lose my faith in luck
    I don't know what I want to be when I grow up
    I just count the rain
    Wearing the floor through the boards again
    I wish I could find a soul to steal
    I could be the engine, you could be the wheel
    And when we're driving home, I never have to worry about being alone

    Oooh, I'll follow my tracks
    See all the times I should have turned back
    Oooh, I wept alone
    I know what it means to be on my own
    Oooh, the things I've known
    Looks like I'm taking the hard way home
    Oooh, the seeds I've sown
    Taking the hard way home
    Taking the hard way home

    I never did learn how to follow the rules
    I never was good at sleeping while the moon was full
    I just lie and burn
    Wreck my mind while the planet turns
    I sometimes wish I could start again
    I'd try and do the right things every now and then
    I'd step in line
    That's what I would do if I could turn back time

    Oooh, I'll follow my tracks
    See all the times I should have turned back
    Oooh, I wept alone
    I know what it means to be on my own
    Oooh, the things I've known
    Looks like I'm taking the hard way home
    Oooh, the seeds I've sown
    Taking the hard way home
    Taking the hard way home

    ooh

    I'll tell you how I want to live
    Forget about the take
    Forget about the give
    I want to leave this town
    Fake my death and never be found

    Oooh, I'll follow my tracks
    See all the times I should have turned back
    Oooh, I wept alone
    I know what it means to be on my own
    Oooh, the things I've known
    Looks like I'm taking the hard way home
    Oooh, the seeds I've sown
    Taking the hard way home
    Taking the hard way home

    I sometimes lose my faith in luck
    I don't know what I want to be when I grow up
    I just count the rain
    Wearing the floor through the boards again
    I wish I could find a soul to steal
    I could be the engine, you could be the wheels
    When we're driving home, I never have to worry about being alone

    Oooh, the things I've known
    Looks like I'm taking the hard way home
    Oooh, the seeds I've sown
    Taking the hard way home
    Taking the hard way home
