lyrics

I should have never got married
that first time around
made a fool of myself
more red flags than i could ever count
but im glad i did
cause i was traveling
the only way that i knew how

i took the long way
i took the long way
back roads for decades
but i finally made it
i took the long way
i took the long way
did shit the hard way
but i finally made it
i finally made it to
i finally made it to you

i should have never moved to los angeles
i should have never quit my band
i should have never told them all to fuck off
when i had them
eating right there from my hand
but im glad i did
cause now im stumbling
the only way that i know how

i took the long way
i took the long way
back roads for decades
but i finally made it
i took the long way
i took the long way
did shit the hard way
but i finally made it
i finally made it to
i finally made it to you

you aint going to hear me say im sorry
cause im not
im just trying to make the most of whatever
of whatever time
we still got

i took the long way
i took the long way
i took the long way
i took the long way
i took the long way
i finally made it
i finally made it to
i finally made it to you
i took the long way

i should have never got married
that first time around
