Possible Suggestion/Solution #1

If your page is using a controller or extension (if it's not, just create an extension) then you should be able to get the URL you're after using the referer header for the Visualforce page.

Use the following method to get the URL:

public String getReferer()
    return ApexPages.currentPage().getHeaders().get('referer');

Then you can just get this in your page using:

<apex:outputText value="{!Referer}"/>

Possible Suggestion/Solution #2

If you're using a Controller, you can use the System.URL class to grab the base URL

Public String baseURL =   URL.getSalesforceBaseUrl().toExternalForm();

You can then bind apex:outputText to this controller variable.
