Verse 1 (Mr. Lif)

She loves travel
Her heart flows where she chose
With a routine
Quickly pack the bags, and let's go

In and out of hotels
Travel light and propel
From one spot to next spot
She did so well....

Never really got attached to any one place
More about the quantity
Addicted to the pace
Til one day...
An unexpected stay
In a place she kept secret
So I'd rather not say

Just know
a feeling resonated in her chest so
strong that she didn't feel like she could move on

But still, the plane ticket had a time on it
She was used to only doing what her mind wanted
Though her spirit started to speak
She wouldn't let it peak
To the point where it would shuffle her agenda for the week

But sitting on the plane to leave simply felt wrong
Looking out the window with her face forlorn....

Chorus (Ayla)
Long, long, long, long, long
long, long way to go…
Long, long, long, long, long
long, long way to go…

……

Taken to the edge, don’t hold back, just jump ahead
Choosing her name, naming herself, whether she knows or not
Gotta go every moment
Long, long way to go, got a long, long way to go
Choosing her name, naming herself, whether she knows or not
Gotta go every moment

……

Long, long, long, long, long, long way to go…
Long, long, long, long, long, long way to go…
Taken to the edge, don't hold back, just jump ahead
Choosing her name, naming herself, whether she knows or not
Gotta go every moment


Verse 2 (Mr. Lif)

Liftoff
Takeoff
Always on schedule
Disregard silly words your gut keeps telling you

Inner dialogue
As she rides through the fog
Up and through the clouds
Then descent
Touch down

Now on the ground
speeding to a meeting
To tell you all the truth,
She's aloof in the proceedings

Couldn't shake the feeling that she didn't belong
Now the music getting louder
Heart singing that song

Longing for this place she barely knew
Life offers so many paths
For you to choose
Sometimes though, we're not meant to know
But she listened to her inner voice
It's telling her "go"

She rose from the table
Thanked the whole staff
Chuckled under her breath to stop a full laugh

Thank you all for coming out, but I've gotta go
Please direct all your requests to so & so

Same bags, same tags, same short
notice
She left to embark on a quest with
one focus
To unearth...
This possible rebirth
The fulfillment of understanding her purpose on earth

No time to waste
She's hopping on a flight
The only way to make her and her fate unite
She's living through passion
Life on a whim
Ascending through the night
Now the journey begins

Chorus (Ayla)
Long, long, long, long, long
long, long way to go…
Long, long, long, long, long
long, long way to go…

……

Taken to the edge, don’t hold back, just jump ahead
Choosing her name, naming herself, whether she knows or not
Gotta go every moment
Long, long way to go, got a long, long way to go
Choosing her name, naming herself, whether she knows or not
Gotta go every moment

……

Long, long, long, long, long, long way to go…
Long, long, long, long, long, long way to go…
Taken to the edge, don't hold back, just jump ahead
Choosing her name, naming herself, whether she knows or not
Gotta go every moment

Verse 3 (Mr. Lif)

Finally she lands in this brand new land
Luggage in tow
With her heart in her hand
She walk upon foreign soil once again
But this time with every intent of staying

Made calls to family
Called some friends
They didn't understand
No, they couldn't comprehend

A couple people even told her that she's crazy
Thinking to herself on the low, "Well maybe..."

Nevertheless, the quest must go on
Doubts in her mind, she refused to prolong

Never known to be thin skinned
She looked within
And let her exploration begin

Discovery of many semi unturned stones
From times she had visions of life with lush tones

Envisioned herself before the pressures of the world
And had a convo with that little bright eyed girl

Those old ambitions
Were so enriching
They gave a new purpose to life
A new rhythm

She walked with a bop
As she went to see spots
That moved her with pure beauty
She channelled more thoughts

Her heart flourished
and art nourished her soul
Her creations shed a light upon the people she showed

The love radiated
Satiating the community
Causing this to circulate a bliss quite beautifully

Suitably spawned
by feelings of calm
That were anchored by an overwhelming sense she belonged

All along she thought she simply had a flair
For venturing around the globe until she came here

Now she realizes that the furious pace
Was her spirit seeking a feeling
An energy
A place
A hundred thousand miles just to reach one zone
Her luggage is unpacked
She's finally at home

Chorus (Ayla)
Long, long, long, long, long
long, long way to go…
Long, long, long, long, long
long, long way to go…

……

Taken to the edge, don’t hold back, just jump ahead
Choosing her name, naming herself, whether she knows or not
Gotta go every moment
Long, long way to go, got a long, long way to go
Choosing her name, naming herself, whether she knows or not
Gotta go every moment

……

Long, long, long, long, long, long way to go…
Long, long, long, long, long, long way to go…
Taken to the edge, don't hold back, just jump ahead
Choosing her name, naming herself, whether she knows or not
Gotta go every moment
