The Long Way

This song is on Dan Fogelberg's album "Souvenirs" released October 1974-I have this CD
Joe Walsh produced the album and played on ten of the eleven tracks
Reviewing retrospectively for AllMusic, critic Stephen J. Matteo wrote of the album "Dan Fogelberg expanded slightly on his sparse, countrified folk sound, adding a distinctively more pop feel, thanks to help from producer Joe Walsh."

She was lost and I thought I was found 
Even so I tried to bring her in 
She was young and I had just begun 
To learn that even losing men can win 
We went the long way 
We went the long way 
We went the long way
Or maybe just the wrong way 
I'll never know 
Overnight we were shown the light 
Neither of us knew to look away
So we burned and far too late we learned 
That lifetimes can't be lived out in a day 
So, goodbye At least we made the try 
Something can be said for love that's pure
If and when we ever try again 
One thing will be known to us for sure
We'll go the long way 
We'll go the long way 
We'll go the long way
Or maybe just the wrong way 
I'll never know  I'll never know
