Lyrics

Back Where I Started

Words and Music by Charlie Midnight and Dale Effren © 2019

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

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:
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

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
