Ever felt a bit awkward at home after a long stint away? Wondering how you going to fit in when everyone's got on perfectly well without you? This'll cheer you up.


I came back the long way round
Need a while to settle down
Both got stories we can share
I should start, I don’t know where


Been making my way
Doing what I do
Thinking ‘bout me
Remembering you
Been way up/cut up/set up/way up
Been way down/cut down/set down/way down
Been too far
The long way round

How is it I’ve come to fear
The look of love become a stare
Could turn out that being away
Might be where I have to stay

Absence makes the heart grow empty
Miles wear out my memories
I know that you tried to tell me
Took the long way round to see

A day or two is all we need
To understand what we are feeling
A day or two, we could be sure of
Finding one another’s love

Chorus x 2
