Level 42 – The Way Back Home lyrics

Didn't I tell you the way back home
Didn't I warn you to stay on the road
Didn't I help you to understand
That life is just time passing thru your hands

There's no easy path thru it
The truth is there is no truth to it
Moving thru the spotlight
Don't let the paparazzi world define you
Now you've made your mark on it
I know you believed the hope of it
You know nobody wins
It's the way you lose that keeps it hopeful

Didn't I tell you I will be there
Didn't 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 couldn't stop the rain from falling
You tried to go way beyond it
You'd already made the most of it
Nothing wrong with dreaming
Just don't fool yourself about the meaning

Didn't I tell you the way back home
Didn't I warn you to stay on the road
Didn't I help you to understand
That life is just time passing thru your plans

You say that you can't let go of it
That your life only works because of it
You're afraid that you can't hold on to it
But your heart doesn't 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
Didn't I tell you that I'd be there
Didn't I show you that I really care

Didn't I tell you the way back home
Didn't I warn you to stay on the road
Didn't I help you to understand
That life is just time passing thru your hands
