lyrics

It’s raining outside
I’m watching people on the street
They make the world go round
People listen when they speak
It seems to get ahead in life
You gotta make a lot of noise
But I can’t even remember
The sound of my own voice

I didn’t mean to be so long
Turned around and you were gone

The world goes rushing by
This train it slows but never stops
And once you get on board boy
There’s no chance of getting off
The people stand and wave
As we go from town to town
But what passes slowly by one day
Can return to cut you down

I didn’t mean to be so long
Turned around and you were gone

And if I don’t get back by tomorrow night
There’s no telling if I’ll get back at all
Because I’ve been following a fading light
And now there’s almost no light at all

I remember sitting in a church
Safe by my father’s side
A cold kingdom carved in stone
While the fires raged outside
I remember sitting in the church
Felt God’s presence in the air
And as the world goes rushing by
I wonder if he was even there

I didn’t mean to be so long
Turned around and you were gone

Well these winding roads they wind back
To the place I once called home
Where the walls are caving in
And the garden’s overgrown
I used to think these winding roads
They led to paradise itself
Till I followed them one day
And they took me some place else

I didn’t mean to be so long
Turned around and you were gone
