Liner Notes: 

Prompt: The Longest Journey

Yes, I know Saturday was yesterday but I missed this skirmish and loved the prompt so wrote something quickly this morning

Lyrics: 

Long and Lonely Journeys

V1
sitting side by side
cold shoulder to cold shoulder
blankly looking straight ahead
anger grows and smolders
sighing heavy with each breath
as the engine hums
twenty minute drives
become endless lonely ones

PC2
endless lonely paths for two
on difficult long journeys

C1
short drives in silence
make the longest journeys
through tangled webs of time
roads dangerous and curvy

short drives in silence
make the longest journeys
hearts and souls are empty
dark thoughts grown surly

short trips are long journeys
when two hearts are hurting

V2
walking side by side
hurt anger with hurt anger
sadly staring at the ground
memories of hard times linger
questioning with every step
as courthouse hallways hum
twenty minute walks
become endless lonely ones

PC2
endless lonely paths for two
of difficult long journeys

C2
short walks in silence
make the longest journeys
through tangled webs of time
bittersweet thoughts burning

short walks in silence
make the longest journeys
hearts and souls are empty
when forever vows end early

short trips are long journeys
when two hearts are hurting

OUTRO
no it is not the destinations
that can cause the most pain
it’s the long and and lonely journeys
that will drive one insane

You paint a clear picture of those awkward, painful moments without speaking. They make a long journey indeed. Good write.
