Lyrics

"Find My Way Back Home"
Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

Everywhere I go I never feel like I belong

But they’re only stops on a road that’s been too long

Some might think it’s sad, but I keep travellin’ on

Someday I’ll be happy, the conclusion is foregone


I’m gonna find my way back home

‘Cause you’re the only love I’ve ever known

Even though I’ve done nothing but roam

I’m gonna find my way back home


There’s a spirit that’s guiding me, a spirit that is strong

All that’s left for me to do, is to keep movin’ along

I know I’ll get there soon, I can feel it in my soul

And I can feel it in my bones, because the road is taking its toll


I’m gonna find my way back home

‘cause you’re the only love I’ve ever known

Even though I’ve done nothing but roam

I’m gonna find my way back home


I never feel afraid, because I know the end’s in sight

I’ll finally be where I fit in, and I’ll know when the time is right

I’m ready for what the future brings, and I know it won’t be easy

When I reach my destination, I know you’ll be there to greet me


I’m gonna find my way back home

‘cause you’re the only love I’ve ever known

Even though I’ve done nothing but roam

I’m gonna find my way back home


I’m gonna find my way back home

‘cause you’re the only love I’ve ever known

Even though I’ve done nothing but roam

I’m gonna find my way back home

Brief Description

Find My Way Back Home is a song about a lost guy in a strange land who is far away from home and missing his true love.  Although he can't help keeping her in his thoughts, which motivated him to start a return, it is those same thoughts that help him stay focused during the hardships of his travel back.  It is similar in concept to the traditional song Wayfaring Stranger, or maybe it's better to say it's "in that vein," and while it expresses a yearning for home and family by a proverbial prodigal son, that yearning is for the ex he left behind who he can't get out of his mind.  You don't know what you have 'till it's gone, and sometimes realization of love can be an afterthought, but even with the knowledge it may not be returned, it can help one to get through tough times.  Again, as an afterthought, the traveler might realize that upon arrival at the destination it was home and family after all that was the most important thing being sought.  We've all been there in some way or another.
