You can't go home again
You can't go home again
And where you played as children
The field has grown in

And the hill overlooking
What used to be your home
You walk among strangers now
Trying to hold your own

And all the I remember when's
Are treasures that you own
And don't be disappointed
If you sometimes stand alone
Among memories, old pictures and old poems

You can't go home again
You can't go home again
And trying to hold yesterday
Is like arms around the wind

And the memories that brought you here
They keep you on the edge
Always on the outside
Trying to see within

And all the I remember when's
Are treasures that you own
And don't be disappointed
If you sometimes stand alone
Among memories, old pictures and old poems

You can't go home again
You can't go home again
And where you once walked easy
Now blows a restless wind

And the heart when overtaken
By feelings long ago
Can sometimes disappoint you
When cooler breezes blow

And all the I remember when's
Are treasures that you own
And don't be disappointed
If you sometimes stand alone
Among memories, old pictures and old poems

Among memories, old pictures and old poems

    So True-I was so disappointed stopping by the house my father built and the home I grew up in, the people that own it had trashed the place-made me very sad and wish I had not went there.:(
