“Long Walk Back” by The Rifles

“How will I start feeling something might be about to change? When will I believe in something strong enough to chase?”

For the first time in my life, I’m feeling plain ordinary.
And I don’t have the fight to carry on with the melee.
‘Cos I don’t have the shoes.
Like my soul’s dead and buried
Running off with the blues

But one day at a time they say.
And if you’re knowing where you’re going,

you’ll be finding your way.
But where I lay down,

my tired head is going over and over
‘cos the feeling feels dead.

I’ve been far and I’ve managed to stop the cracks.
I’ve been wide and I’ve taken the long walk back.
Nine times out of ten I’ll be wanting this.
This time don’t tell me that’s all there is.

For the first time in my life, I’m feeling plain ordinary
Am I wasting my time?
‘Cos I look for an answer but I don’t get a clue.
Like somebody took my rhythm and just left me with the blues

But who knows ‘cos if I take five,
I might miss an opportunity if one should arise.
But when I lay down my tired mind is going over and over
I hope the feeling’s alive.

I’ve been far and I’ve managed to stop the cracks
I’ve been wide and I’ve taken the long walk back
Nine times out of ten I’ll be wanting this
This time don’t tell me that’s all there is.

How will I start feeling something might be about to change?
When will I believe in something strong enough to chase?
I know that I don’t mean half of the stupid things I say.
But lately, I just feel like taking the long walk away.

I’ve been far and I’ve managed to stop the cracks
I’ve been wide and I’ve taken the long walk back
Nine times out of ten I’ll be wanting his
This time don’t tell me that’s all there is.

This time don’t tell me that’s all there is.

This time don’t tell me that’s all there is.

CPE

I'm routinely overestimated.
