Come down off your throne and leave your body alone
Somebody must change
You are the reason I've been waiting so long
Somebody holds the key
Well, I'm near the end and I just ain't got the time
And I'm wasted and I can't find my way home

Come down on your own and leave your body alone
Somebody must change
You are the reason I've been waiting all these years
Somebody holds the key
Well, I'm near the end and I just ain't got the time
And I'm wasted and I can't find my way home

    I think the song is about unrequited love and a man/woman who has spent many years waiting for this person to change something about themselves, and the man/woman has waited for so long that they have decided they no longer have the time to waste on this person. But, this has been all they have known for so many years that they are lost and can't find their way back to themselves.

    Man, winwood knows how to do folk! His early works (no face, john B. ,
    Headmen, etc.) actually brought me into the folk genre more than dylan or cat stevens, with respect to all, obviously.
    Meaning: there is not much to interpret here besides seeing- the singer is.
    Wasted and lost, and something is blocking his ability to have a relationship with the one on the throne. Many variables can be inserted into the obvious scenario, personalized.
    I had a bad experience of drug overdose once (1976), was leaving a friend's house, one mile from home, got in my car and absolutely had no idea where I was. It took me an hour to find my way home and I suddenly realized what it meant to be "wasted and i can't find my way home". Monty may.

    I think it also speaks to addiction and chemical abuse of self. Get off that high horse you're on, thinking the drugs are making you "real". Leave your body alone, look inside and find the key. When you're wasted you can't find your way home... Which is a peaceful and healthy and happy place within you. A place that doesn't need drugs or booze for a key. The key comes from leaving that all behind and finding your way "home" free of all that.
