Way Life's Meant to Be
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.
