WHICH WAY WILL I GET HOME? (Robert J. Purvis)


As a young man, I was free

No one held a part of me

Everything I had was my own

On a fine day, I'd walk so far I'd lose myself

But I'd somehow always find a place to go


CHORUS:

Which way will I get home

Which way will I get home

I don't know my way around here so well


This which was my town

Having seen its better days

Smothered up inside a giant concrete ball


And where's the old grey bridge

Where we sheltered from the rain

No, it doesn't seem that place I knew at all


repeat CHORUS


The small amount of splendour

That still delights my eyes

Seems to vanish more with every passing day

Oh I walk undirected, won't someone take my hand?

Yes, it has been known for me to lose my way


repeat CHORUS
