Back to You

Words and Music by Colin Ward

Ever since I left home, I've been waiting for the day
To hold you in my arms again, in the city by the bay
Left to find my fortune, travel near and far
Should have taken you with me, wouldn't be sitting in this bar
Without you
I can't get back to you

I'm in a boat out on the ocean, with water coming in
I'm in a plane up in the sky, with a pilot drunk on gin
I'm in a train that passed the station, that's running out of track
I'm driving down a one way street, with no way to get back
To you
I can't get back to you

I didn't know I'd miss you, when I set out on this trip
I thought I'd find some other girls, when I needed just a sip
But soon I came to realize, you should have come along
I'm sad and lonely now because, leaving you was wrong
I'm without you
I can't get back to you

I'm in a boat out on the ocean, with water coming in
I'm in a plane up in the sky, with a pilot drunk on gin
I'm in a train that passed the station, that's running out of track
I'm driving down a one way street, with no way to get back
To you
I can't get back to you

I know you had to stay at home, couldn't come along
We need to be together, that's where we both belong

Ever since I left home, I've been waiting for the day
To hold you in my arms again, in the city by the bay
Left to find my fortune, travel near and far
Should have taken you with me, wouldn't be sitting in this bar
Without you
I can't get back to you

I'm in a boat out on the ocean, with water coming in
I'm in a plane up in the sky, with a pilot drunk on gin
I'm in a train that passed the station, that's running out of track
I'm driving down a one way street, with no way to get back
To you
I can't get back to you
