      Mary Chapin Carpenter - The Long Way home Música y Letra

      You could be this man, he's got it all worked out
      To the nth degree, no fears, no doubts
      He'll retire at thirty to his big-ass house next to the putting green
      Now he's got a picture in his head of the perfect wife, 
      Their perfect children, their perfect life
      Bothing wrong with that, coming home each night to his cul-de-sac of dreams
      Funny now how it all went by so fast
      One day he's looking over his shoulder at the past
      When everybody had to go, had to be, had to get somewhere
      How did he forget about what got him there
      
      Now you could be this woman, she's the CEO
      She's got her powersuits and her IPO's
      She punched a hole in the ceiling years ago and she hasn't pulled back since
      Now there's a gardener for the flowers, a cook for the meals, 
      A maid for the laundry, an accountant for the bills
      A walker for the dog and a trainer when she feels the need to lose an inch
      Funny now how it all went by so fast
      One day she's looking over her shoulder at the past
      When everybody had to go, had to be, had to get somewhere
      Somehow she forgot about what got her there
      
      Accidents and inspiration lead you to your destination
      
      Or you could be the one who takes the long way home
      Roll down your window, turn off your phone
      See your life as a gift from the great unknown
      And your task is to receive it
      Tell your kid a story, hold your lover tight
      Make a joyful noise, swim naked at night
      Read a poem a day, call in well sometimes and
      Laugh when they believe it
      
      Funny now how it all goes by so fast
      One day I'm looking over my shoulder at the past
      Now everybody's got to go, got to be, got to get somewhere
      Baby don't forget about
      You really shouldn't forget about
      Baby don't forget what got you there
      I think it's what got you there
      Yeah it's really what got you there
      You know what got you there
