Lyrics

My life is one of movement I been traveling as fast as I can I've inherited trial and error directly from my old man But I'm committed to the consequences Whether I stand or fall And when I get back to my life I think I'm gonna give her a call I think I'm gonna give her a call She's been waiting patiently For me to put my trip together And it touches something deep inside When she said she'd wait forever Because forever's right up on me now That is, if it ever comes at all And when I get back to my life I think I'm gonna give her a call I think I'm gonna give her a call She didn't know She could hardly believe How much she means to me No, she wouldn't know She could scarcely understand Why I cling so desparately to dreams But she's calmed me in the evening She's calmed me in the night Calmed my fear of dreaming And made my fear blind My life's been one of running away Just as fast as I can But I've been no more successful at getting by Than was my old man But if you come to recognise the truth and understand That the truth is really all Then why I get back to my life I think I'm gonna give her a call I think I'm gonna give her a call Yes, when I get back to my life I think I'm gonna give her a call Say, say, when I get back to my life I get back to my life, I think I'll call Saying, yeah, get back to my life I get back to my life, I think I'll call Yeah, yeah, say Get back to my life, get back to my life Say, get back to my life, say get back to my life If I ever really get back to my life Get back to my life, I think I'll call I say, I say, I say Get back to my life, get back to my life
