Well I came a long way to be here today
And I left you so long on this avenue,
And here I stand in the strangest land
Not knowing what to say or do.
As I gaze around at these strangers in town,
I guess the only stranger is me,
And I wonder, yes I wonder, is this
The way life's meant to be.

Although it's only a day since I was taken away
And left standing here looking in wonder,
The ground at my feet feet maybe it's just the old street
But everything that I know lies under,
And when I see what they've done to this place that was home,
Shame is all that I feel,
And I wonder, yes I wonder, is this
The way life's meant to be.

Too late, too late to cry, the people say,
Too late for you, too late for me,
You've come so far now you know everything my friend
Just look and see the wonders of our world.

As I wander around this wreck of a town
Where people never speak aloud,
With it's ivory towers and it's plastic flowers
I wish I was back in 1981
Just to see your face, instead of this place
Now I know what you mean to me,
And I wonder, yes I wonder, is this
The way life's meant to be
