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
Bbm	Gb	  Db
There a light up ahead

Forgive me pretty baby but I always take the long way home

Off the back of a train

Got a head full of lightning

a hat full of rain

And I know that I said
