“Don’t think I’ve ever seen your kind of pretty
wandering around this midnight mad house city
you got a look that says you got it all together
so if you don’t mind I’d like to know you better

Take me the long way around your town
were you the queen with the silver crown?
I want the secrets you keep, the shine underneath
of the diamond I think I just found
take me the long way around

I’d love to see just where your daddy met your momma
your hand-me-down ’99 Impala
show me the field you danced in clover
the harvest in October
when the leaves fall from the sky just like a Sunday drive

Take me the long way around your town
were you the queen with the silver crown?
I want the secrets you keep, the shine underneath
of the diamond I think I just found
take me the long way around

Didn’t think tonight when I walked in
I’d be falling for somewhere I’ve never been

Take me the long way around your town
were you the queen with the silver crown?
I want your red blushing stories
your faults and your glories
that made you who you are right now
take me the long way around
take me the long way around”.

Citazioni.

The Long Way is a song written and recorded by American country music singer Brett Eldredge for his self-titled third studio album (2017). Matt Rogers co-wrote the song, while Ross Copperman co-produced the song with Eldredge. It was first released digitally on May 12, 2017 as a promotional single for the album. “The Long Way” was serviced to American country radio on August 21, 2017 through Atlantic Records and Warner Music Nashville as the second official single from Brett Eldredge. “The Long Way” is a midtempo country ballad with influences of pop music. The song is “a look into what I want to find in love,” according to a press release from Eldredge. Lyrically, the song describes how a lover can get to know their partner on a deeper level by exploring their history and their hometown. “The Long Way” was written at a time where Eldredge was looking for true love and his cowriter, Matt Rogers, was soon to be married, which inspired the romantic lyrics. Certain details were inspired by the writers’ upbringings while others were generalized.
Cillea Houghton of Sounds Like Nashville wrote that “The Long Way” is a “standout track” on the album that “allows his voice to shine,” and is a “real charmer”. Top Country also labelled the song as a highlight of the album, writing, “the emotional melodies intertwine with the lyrics to make the story come to life, like any perfect country song”. Taylor Weatherby of Billboard included “The Long Way” on a list of Eldredge’s 10 best songs and wrote, “this love song from his latest record proves that he has quite the range — while also giving further proof that he’s a king at writing lyrics that make you melt”. The music video was directed by Jim Shea and premiered on CMT, GAC & CMT Pure Country in October 2017. “The Long Way” debuted at number 41 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart dated June 3, 2017. The song sold 11,000 copies in its first week, debuting at number 14 on the Country Digital Song Sales component chart. The song re-entered the chart at number 38 for the week of August 26, 2017 and has since peaked at that position. “The Long Way” debuted at number 56 on the Country Airplay chart dated September 9, 2017. The song has sold 13,000 copies in the United States as of May 2017″.
