I'm almost home,
no matter how far I roam,
I'm almost home… with you.
It's a long road I've traveled down,
and its end is near in sight.
I've soldiered on many a shore,
and never gave up the fight.
But freedom is a lonely cause.
And I never got it right.
So many times I took that road,
but, never saw the light.
You were always on my mind,
when through my fears I wasted.
Years went by and I don't know why,
those bitter tears I tasted.
Watched them die and don't know why,
it wasn't me they wanted.
Hellfire deep and on the heap,
all humanity's fears I taunted.
The end is almost near now,
I see it coming around the bend.
of war and all I fear,
It's coming to an end.
I'll see you in my dreams tonight,
I'll see you to the end.
I'll see you through the flashbacks,
I'll see you again.
I don't know when, but I'll see you again.
I'll see you again... and again... and again...
I’m almost home.
The Long, Lonely Road
