Electric Light Orchestra

Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) are a British rock group from Birmingham, England who released eleven studio albums between 1971 and 1986 and another album in 2001. ELO were formed to accommodate Roy Wood and Jeff Lynne's desire to create modern rock and pop songs with classical overtones. After Wood's departure following the band's debut record, Lynne wrote and arranged all of the group's original compositions and produced every album. more »

Well, I came a long way to be here today 
And I left you so long on this avenue 
And here I stand in the strangest land 
Not knowing what to say or do 
As I gaze around at these strangers in town 
I guess the only stranger is me 
And I wonder, yes I wonder 
Is this the way life's meant to be

Although it's only a day since I was taken away 
And left standing here looking in wonder 
The ground at my feet, maybe it's just the old street 
But everything that I know lies under 
And when I see what they've done to this place that 
was home 
Shame is all that I feel 
And I wonder, yes I wonder, is this
The way life's meant to be

Too late, too late to cry 
The people say 
Too late for you, too late for me 
You've come so far, now you know everything 
My friend 
Just look and see the wonders of our world

As I wander around this wreck of a town 
Where people never speak aloud 
With its ivory towers and its plastic flowers 
I wish I was back in 1981 
Just to see your face instead of this place 
Now I know what you mean to me 
And I wonder, yes, I wonder, is this 
The way life's meant to be.
