According to Wikipedia:

"Long, Long Way from Home" is the third single taken from the album, Foreigner by the band, Foreigner. The lyrics refer to a person leaving a small town to try and succeed in New York City ("I left a small town for the apple in decay") and the loneliness he feels there. The song features a clavinet and was co-written by Mick Jones, Lou Gramm & former member of King Crimson, Ian McDonald. The single was released in November 1977. It reached number 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1978.[1]

Lyrics:

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

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
And I hope we'll be here when they're through with us
I'm coming home

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
Oh she's waiting for me
But I'm a long, long way from home
