Long Way 'Round

I heard a voice, it was like a mothers

I felt it resonate like no other

I wanted to sing, but no others were singing

So I lay in the meadow with the hawkweed closing

And the setting of the sun

 

I knew it was time so I opened my lungs

I began to sing like I'd never sung

Jumped up with tears rolling out of my eyes

There was song and dance 'til the next sunrise

Who would have thought I'd find a voice so true

Taking my time, making up my mind

 

I was goin' the long way 'round

Goin' the long way 'round

 

I heard a beat of a different drummer

I felt a pulse that felt like no other

I wanted to dance, but no others were dancing

So I tried to ignore, but it kept on beating

And drumming, and beating away

 

I had to know if it was worth my time

So I listened and followed with every sign

Stepped away from the people, opened up my ears

When I stepped back you were standing there

Who would have thought I'd find someone like you

Taking my time, making up my mind

 

I was goin' the long way 'round

Goin' the long way 'round

 

When I found you I took your hand

We started a-dancin' all over the land

Step in, step out, step here, step there

Steppin' up and steppin' down with an ancient care

Who would have thought I'd find someone like you

Taking my time, making up my mind

 

I was goin' the long way 'round

Goin' the long way 'round

We were goin' the long way 'round

Goin' the long way 'round
