Kent - Ensam Lång Väg Hem Lyrics Translation (Lonely Long Way Home)

Album: En Plats i Solen
Lyrics: Joakim Berg
Music: Joakim Berg


First when the rain came
And the right wind howled
I took a train from Stockholm
The wide world via Flen

With the most common of plans
And nothing new to come to
And there was nothing to really flee from
Just nothing more to give

First when the rain came
I knew something was wrong
There was a quiet shaking
Under the streets, far down

It was the most common premonition
Neither less or more
And there was nothing to really flee from
There was no time to pray

And a wide open road rolls out before us
In a ruined city where atheists wear crosses
I say to you it was lucky that you came
I have sky high standards and this is just right
But it is not for me

First when the spring came
With solidarity
Longing home for Stockholm
I realized the extent of my betrayal
And with the lamest of excuses
Neither calls or letters

So there was nothing to really say
It just was as it was

And a wide open road rolled out before us
From a ruined city where atheists wear crosses
I say to you it was lucky that you came
I have sky high standards and this is just right
But it is not for me

It was a lonely long way home
It was a lonely long way home
It was a lonely long way home

It was a lonely long way home
It was a lonely long way home
