When the Road is Long

from Dreamers, 1987 Special Edition by Bruno Merz



I closed the store,
threw my keys through the door
and I wrote a note telling them
that I won't be back

Left turn home
or turn right for the unknown
An easy choice when your walls loom,
make you feel so alone

So what do you give when you've given it all,
when the breeze brings a sense, a sense of the ancients
What do you take when the road is long
And you don't know where you're headed

My brittle city bones
have soaked up days of rain.
I'm feeling you somehow near,
near me again.

I'm sure I saw you underneath the stars.
without words you told me all, all would be okay
To keep on loving, take time for rest.
Life should be light, and we'll be together again someday

Something will give when you've given it all
And the breeze brings a sense, a sense of the ancients
There's nothing to take when the road is long
Just look out for the signs that you will be given.
