Outfield – John Lennon lyrics

J. Spinks

A soul full of anger - but nothing to show
A world wrapped in cotton - but nowhere to go
Obsessed by a woman that you didn't know
Don't turn around - don't turn around

Torn between lovers - both mothers as well
A mind a prison - a heart in a cell
If only the screams could be heard from this hell
Don't turn around - don't turn around

You were surprised by a girl in the sky
Who changed everyone
And as your life became so mystified
There was a lonely heart - left by the side

Tomorrow could never be just one more day
Confused by an image - refusing to stay
The child in your mind always wanted it's way
Don't turn around - don't turn around

Then on a day in your life
Still remembered by everyone
There was a man with a gun at his side
You and your monkey had nowhere to hide

He was the man that was sent from the rye
Don't turn around - don't turn around

So many things on his mind
I'm not sure if he knew
Why he blew you away
I can't decide if it's true
What he thought on that day

Don't be afraid when the day turns to night
Don't be ashamed when I turn out the lights
Call out my name and I'd hold you so tight
Don't turn around - don't turn around
