A child learns the ways of the world, as told by his mother, step by step, slowly like a snail
I took the long way back,mom
I took the long way back home, you told
me how things would be, you told me all that I
could be, though you did not tell me what I would be,
but you did say what I should be. Step by step walk up
walk upon these words, step by step move on, move on upon my
words you said – there is no one else in this whole wide world, no one who
feels for you like I do, cares for you like I do, think of you, loves you like I would.
This walk of yours, step by step, as you climb upon my words, snail them and make them
yours then you will say my words,I took the long way back mom, I took the long way back home.
