The Long Way Around

If you could only see me baby
Laughin’ out loud when I’m alone
It would amaze you how that lately
All of my darkness is gone
It don’t mean that I don’t miss you
Heaven knows how I still care
It’s just the bitterness and the drinkin’
Weren’t gettin’ me anywhere

And it’s a beautiful feelin’
Breathin’ on my own
And I’m flying faster than I’ve ever flown
And I’m discoverin’ lately
From way above the ground
That I was never lost
I was just takin’ the long way around

I can still feel you with me sometimes
Touchin’ my skin like the sun
But on the downhill side of forgiveness
I finally found the room to run

And it’s a beautiful feelin’
Breathin’ on my own
And I’m flying faster than I’ve ever flown
And I’m discoverin’ lately
From way above the ground
That I was never lost
I was just takin’ the long way around
The long way around

If you could only see me baby
