Been Away Too Long Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

You can't go home, no, I swear you never can
You can walk a million miles and get nowhere
I got nowhere to go ever since I came back
Just filling in the lines from the holes to the cracks

No one knows me,
No one saves me,
No one loves or hates me
I've been away for too long

This place has a special kind of falling apart,
Like they put the whole thing together in the dark
And no one knows where the edge of the knife is
And no one knows what intelligent life is

No one knows me,
No one saves me,
No one loves or hates me

Going straight
I only ever really wanted a break
I've been away for too long
No, I never really wanted to stay
I've been away for too long

I've been away for too long
I've been away for too long

Kilos through keyholes
Widows through windows
Pilots through eyelets
Everyone is silent

Tankards and flagons and snifters and flutes
On my way home

Going straight
I only ever really wanted a break
I've been away for too long
No, I never really wanted to stay
I've been away...

Going straight
I only ever really wanted a break
I've been away for too long
No, I never really wanted to stay
I've been away for too long

Songwriters
CHRIS J CORNELL, HUNTER BENEDICT SHEPHERD
