Lyrics Benny mayne – The long way

Stuck in this town where nobody understands me
I don't fit in, but I pretend like I'm happy
I smoke too much just to escape my reality
Disappoint my family, I'm as lost as I can be
I don't know how everyone is so comfortable
Doin' everything they're told, fit right into the mold
Pray I find a way out, 'cause it's killin' me inside
Yeah, I don't belong here, yeah

I'm just wasting my time, learnin' my lesson the hard way
Walkin' on a thin line and I don't care if it's lonely
'Cause all of my friends are settling down
I don't wanna go home, I wanna stay out
I'll be doin' alright, I'm fine with taking the long way, oh

I don't feel set up for the life that I've been given
Can't work no nine to five, I feel like I'm in prison
Havin' sex, depressed, drink myself to death
Runnin' circles every night, I'm just tryna feel alive
Don't wanna become everything I hate the most
Pray that I can stay afloat, 'fore I turn into a ghost
Gotta be a way out, I just wish I had the time
'Cause I don't belong here, yeah

I'm just wasting my time, learnin' my lesson the hard way
Walkin' on a thin line and I don't care if it's lonely
'Cause all of my friends are settling down
I don't wanna go home, I wanna stay out
I'll be doin' alright, I'm fine with taking the long way, oh

Ooh, ooh (The long way)
Ooh, ooh (Lonely)

'Cause all of my friends are settling down
I don't wanna go home, I wanna stay out
Ooh, ooh, the long way
