THE LONG WALK HOME

Sherri Beck / Sam and Wren Brasfield / Jim and Robyn Barklow / Jeff and Trish Dawson / Ray and Esme Conard / Duke and Daphne Vega / Maia Sharp / Will Kimbrough / Darden Smith

Taking the long walk it’ll go wrong or right, it’s black and white
Somebody shoots at me I shoot back
I don’t have to talk, I push through the pain like I was trained
I’m taking the long walk

Taking the long walk down the stairs, she’s waiting there
Most scared I’ve ever been
Another kind of shell shock, fight or flight, no black or white
Taking the long walk

Home where I want to be
Home do you still want me
Home, will you come with me
On the long walk home

I’m taking the long walk I see your face, looking out of place
I’ve been waiting here for you
I wish you would just talk, I’m holding back the tears, fighting off my fears
Taking the long walk

Keeping the home fires burning, holding down the fort
Suddenly it’s all on me, I don’t want that anymore

Home where I want to be
Home do you still want me
Home will you come with me
On the long walk home

Drop the stones that we carry
They’re a burden and a weight
Be my sanctuary
Before it’s too late

Home where I want to be
Home do you still want me
Home will you come with me
On the long walk

Home where safe to rest
Home what a beautiful mess
Home we are brave and blessed
On the long walk home
