The Way Back Home
Album: Retroglide - Artist: Level 42



 
(R. Gould/M. King)

Didnít I tell you the way back home
Didnít I warn you to stay on the road
Didnít I help you to understand
That life is just time passing thru your hands

Thereís no easy path thru it
The truth is there is no truth to it
Moving thru the spotlight
Donít let the paparazzi world define you
Now youíve made your mark on it
I know you believed the hope of it
You know nobody wins
Itís the way you lose that keeps it hopeful

Didnít I tell you I will be there
Didnít I show you I really care

You spoke of your plans for it
You talked all about your destiny
I could see the rain clouds
But I couldnít stop the rain from falling
You tried to go way beyond it
Youíd already made the most of it
Nothing wrong with dreaming
Just donít fool yourself about the meaning

Didnít I tell you the way back home
Didnít I warn you to stay on the road
Didnít I help you to understand
That life is just time passing thru your plans

You say that you canít let go of it
That your life only works because of it
Youíre afraid that you canít hold on to it
But your heart doesnít seem so sold on it
Why not try to believe the heart of it
Why not try to perceive the art in it
Why not let me be more a part of it

Didnít I tell you that Iíd be there
Didnít I show you that I really care

Didnít I tell you the way back home
Didnít I warn you to stay on the road
Didnít I help you to understand
That life is just time passing thru your hands
