          G    C                       G        D
His eyes appear vacant, he'd taken more than his share
            G       C                    G    D
Trying hard not to awaken the voice of regret in his ear
           G        C                       G          D
He can't escape the timeline, so much worse than he had feared
         G  C                       G     D
Lived every moment wishing the past would disappear
            G       C         D C
He took the long way on the freeway
            G       C         Em D C
He took the long way on the free - way

| C | C G | D |

               G    C                             G      D
She was his all and everything but his strength it needed space
          G        C                       G   D
Her love was but a haunting, she left but never went away

             G       C         D C
She took the long way on the freeway
             G       C         Em D C
She took the long way on the free - way
             G       C         D C
She took the long way on the freeway
             G       C         Em D C
She took the long way on the free - way

She took the long way on the freeway
             G       C         Em D C
She took the long way on the free - way
             G       C         D C
She took the long way on the freeway
             G       C         Em D C
She took the long way on the free - way
             Em D C    Em D C
She took the long way
Am                                           C
 Well, it couldn't be had, what he wanted to hold
                     G   C
Oh, he dared to let go
               D    C
He should've known

               G       C         D C
She'd take the long way on the freeway
               G       C         Em D C
She'd take the long way on the free - way
