Oh I went down the other day to see
What the oracle had to say, she
Offered me a piece of advice
She said, Ooh child, whatcha gonna do?
You been looking mighty blue so
I'mma tell you a secret about life

Hey ey, it's two steps up
And three steps back
It's forward progress
We won't collapse

Ooh, yeah, you're gonna pull through
Ooh, yeah, you're gonna pull through
Ooh, sometimes it's the long way around
You gotta get lost
To get found

She said, oh child, you know you stand
On the shoulders of every woman
Who would not go down without a fight
She said, You know in times like these
When life is a mystery
You just keep walking towards the light

Just keep those flowers in your hair
And those stars in your eyes
We all fall down
But then we rise

Ooh, yeah, you're gonna pull through
Ooh, yeah, you're gonna pull through
Ooh, sometimes it's the long way around
You gotta get lost
To get found

And objects might appear
Closer in the rear view mirror
But you've gotta let it go
Can you let it go?
Are there any spirits out there
I think I hear them listening
Oh, I think I hear something
I'm gonna love to live again

Ooh, yeah, I'm gonna pull through
Ooh, yeah, I'm gonna pull through
Ooh, sometimes it's the long way around
You gotta get lost
To get found

Sometimes it's the long way around
You gotta get lost
To be found

Long Way Around
