Lyrics

There’s a feeling I have in my heart
It’s calling me back to the start
When I look straight ahead I can see
A vision that’s waiting for me

Well I packed up this morning yeh
On my way
Yeah I’m on my way back to the place that I know

Gonna wipe all the sweat from my eyes
Still I must travel a thousand miles
Going back to where I’ve been before
Will it feel like he first time I can’t be sure?

I guess before I wasn’t ready
Not ready at all
This time I’ll take it slow and steady
I won’t take that fall

Well I packed up this morning yeah
On my way
To the bright light shining yeah on my way
Yeah I’m on my way back to the place that I know
[M. Seymour & D. Bridie]
