Been Away Too Long

  • You can't go home, no I swear you never can
    You can walk a million miles and get nowhere
    I got no where to go and it seems I came back
    Just filling in the lines for the holes, and the cracks

    Hey, no one knows me
    No one saves me
    No one loves or hates me
    I've been away for too long

    This place has a sṗecial kind of falling apart
    Like they put the whole thing together in the dark
    No one knows where the edge of the knife is
    And no one knows where intelligent life is

    Hey, no one knows me
    No one saves me
    No one loves or hates me
    Going straight
    I only ever really wanted a break
    I've been away for too long
    No I never really wanted to stay
    I've been away for too long

    I've been away for too long
    I've been away for too long
    Keyholes, trough keyholes
    Where those
    I am still hiding
    Everyone inside
    Tank girls and fly guns and silver boots on my way home

    Going straight
    I only ever really wanted a break
    I've been away for too long
    No I never really wanted to stay
    Going straight
    I only ever really wanted a break
    I've been away for too long
    No I never really wanted to stay
    I've been away for too long Writer/s: BENEDICT SHEPHERD HUNTER, CHRIS CORNELL
