The Long Road
Chords : G D Am C Em Capo: 7th intro: G G We've walked the long road and you've worn it well. C You stitched yourself up when you fell. Am Keep your memories in jars, D Carry secrets in scars G Beneath your shell. G G You've seen some good days, and some bad ones too. C You weave through fashion and trend. Am D You've seen a sun rise on an ocean blue, G You've seen it set for the dearest of friends G D Am D You found faith but you, chose to doubt it. G Em You found love but you, left without it. Am C D And now you don't want, to talk about it. G G You travelled down through foreign lands, Touched mountain tops and golden sand, C Seen pyramids and temples made of stone. Am Keep seashells in a cashmere scarf, D A treasured book of photographs G In every single one you stand alone. G G You've seen Vienna and the Berlin wall, As you watched the decades fall C The letters that you wrote never made it home. Am Your birthdays flew past like June, D With Christmas days in hotel rooms G And new year's eve with people you don't know. C D Am D You built friendships but they, sailed without you. G Em You never meant it and that's why, they doubt you. Am C D They don't ever talk about you. G Am You're older than you used to be, D The mirror weaves a tapestry G Bm Em Of lines that dance and shimmer 'round your eyes. Am D You stare back at a man, forever holding out his hand Bm G Em As if the answer's gonna to fall out of the sky. Am But the penny never dropped, Bm C D G And no man has ever stopped time flying by.
