The Long Way Home
Norah Jones Lyrics


Well I stumbled in the darkness
I'm lost and alone
Though I said I'd go before us
And show the way back home
Is there a light up ahead?
I can't hold on very long
Forgive me pretty baby
But I always take the long way home

Money's just something you throw
Off the back of a train
I got a handful of lightening
And a hat full of rain
And I know that I said
I'd never do it again
Oh, and I love you sweet baby
But I always take the long way home

I put food on the table
And roof overhead
But I'd trade it all tomorrow
For the highway instead
Watch your back if I should tell
Your loves the only thing I've ever known
One thing's for sure sweet baby
I always take the long way home

You know I love you baby
More than the whole wide world
I'm your woman
I know you are my pearl
So let's go out past the party lights
Where we can finally be alone
Come with me
And we can take the long way home
Mm-mm, come with me
Together we can take the long way home
Mm-mm, come with me
Together we can take the long way home

The Long Way Home"

Well I stumbled in the darkness
I'm lost and alone
Though I said I'd go before us
And show the way back home

Is there a light up ahead
I can't hold on very long
Forgive me pretty baby
But I always take the long way home

Money's just something you throw
Off the back of a train
Got a head full of lightening
And hat full of rain

And I know that I said
I'd never do it again
Oh well I love you sweet baby
But I always take the long way home

I put food on the table
And a roof overhead
But I'd trade it all tomorrow
For the highway instead

Watch your back if I should tell
Your love's the only thing I'd ever known
One thing's for sure sweet baby
I always take the long way home

Though I love you baby
More than the whole wide world
I'm your woman
You know you are my pearl

So let's go out past the party lights
Where we can finally be alone
Come with me and we can take a long way home
Come with me, together we can take the long way home
Come with me, together we can take the long way home

This is one of those rare Waits covers that works beautifully - the song just fits Norah's voice so very well.

Cormz Zilla

Tom wrote it for her originally. He later released his own recording of it on his compilation Orphans album.

This is a marvelous version. She takes Tom Waits song, which is in itself a thing of art, and make it her own. Excellent!

Man, I wish Norah would live in the apartment upstairs so I could hear her playing and singing all day...
