Lyrics

Back Where I Started
Words and Music by Charlie Midnight and Dale Effren © 2017
Verse:
See the house on the hill that's the place that you lived
There's the tree in your yard where I carved your name
That's the sky where it rained on the day that you went away
Life is so different now but everything looks the same
Pre-Chorus:
If all things change, yes, if that's true
Then why can't I change the way I feel about you
Chorus:
I don't want to be the walking wounded
Or the brave but broken hearted
I want to move on
But I'm right back where I started
I don't want to write sad songs
About the day you departed
I want to move on
But I'm right back where I started
Verse II:
I have walked on the streets where I made a promise
That the years may go by but we wouldn't change
See the world, take it slow and make love every day
Life was so beautiful in ways that I can't explain
Pre-Chorus II:
And then it changed, it always does
The way that it is becomes the way that it was
Chorus:
I don't want to be the walking wounded
Or the brave but broken hearted
I want to move on
But I'm right back where I started
I don't want to write sad songs
About the day you departed
I want to move on
But I'm right back where I started
Bridge:
The place I never left
In the heart and in the mind
It seems I can't let go -
And it will take much more than time
