Foreigner - Long, long way from home 1978

It was a Monday
A day like any other day
I left a small town
For the Apple in decay

It was my destiny
It's what we needed to do
They were telling me
I'm telling you

I was inside looking outside
The millions of faces
But still I'm alone
Waiting hours of waiting
Paying a penance
I was longing for home

I'm looking out for the two of us.
I hope we'll be here when they're through with us

(Instrumental)

I was inside looking outside
Oh the millions of faces
But still I'm alone
Waiting hours of waiting
I could feel the tension
I was longing for home

I'm looking out for the two of us.
I hope we'll be here when they're through with us
I'm coming home

(Instrumental)

Monday sad, sad Monday
She's waiting for me
But I'm a long, long, way from home
Sad, sad Monday
She's waiting for me
But I'm a long, long, way from home
Sad, sad Monday
She's waiting for me
But I'm a long, long, way from home

I agree. This is rock at its near best. The original band was kick ass!

No one sings like Lou Gramm...He absolutely nails the vocals...I tried to like the new line up ...But, it just doesn't move me like the originals do.

One of the greatest voices in the history of Rock..Lou Gramm

Saw them in Lexington, KY's Rupp Arena in the late 70's - they opened with this song. I believe it was their very first headlining tour. They only had their first album released at the time, so they did songs from the Double Vision album and told us that these songs were going to be on their upcoming album. Memory I'll never forget. Loved them then - still love them! My kids even love them too. I miss rock -n- roll.

I'm happy my Dad listened to bands like this and Van Halen, Boston, Def Leppard, etc. or I would have never appreciated this type of music.

I remember when i first heard this song and couldn't believe my ears! It was the 3rd huge hit from the album after Feels Like The First Time and Cold As Ice. I was so stunned because the first 2 hits were so awesome and then they had this 3rd great hit also! I became a huge Foreigner and have been ever since. That first album, in my opinion, was easily their best - it was full of such good song-writing and all-round great songs that really rocked or others that were great pop-soft-rock songs - every song could have been a hit if they tried to release them. Mick Jones did an almost impossible job of getting these great musicians together but his greatest achievement was getting Lou Gramm to join. Together Jones and Gramm were an incredible song writing duo! They could write the hardest rock or the softest ballads and turn them all into #1's or top ten hits. On top of that, Lou had one of the best rock voices of all time!

Decades later Lou Gramm still blows us away with the best of rock voices! Mick Jones put together one great rock band but picked the best of winners when he chose Lou as vocalist!

Great American rock band- get them in the rock and roll hall of fame NOW!!!!

and Ian McDonald on sax at 1:55....for those unaware, he was a founding member of King Crimson in '69....too much of a musician for Mick Jones to handle, ousted from Foreigner in 1980.
