Long Way From Home

from by Kris Kehr



-This song came directly from Tuesday jam night with Magnetic North Project . I recorded Zack playing with a riff he made up, added some structure, melody and a chorus & verse, then wrote this story that seems to resonate with a few people I know…


I’m a long way from home
Ain’t no place to call my own
I was traveling hard and put away wet
Long way from home but I’ll get there yet

I didn’t know where I was going wrong
Thought I was planting righteous seeds
I guess I took things just a bit too far
And lost the grip on what I need


Lost at the crossroads on a one-way turn
Things got too difficult to see
Not many choices that I had not burned
It made no difference to me


Mixed-up confusion always lit my way
Yet somehow always brought me home
I walked in circles ‘til I faced your way
Sucked in your black-hole vertigo


I crossed the demarcation long ago
Kept drifting further out to sea
The sun is setting on some distant shore
My love lies waiting there for me
