{Where do you go when you've somewhere to run
But the time isn't right and there's things to be done}

{And you're trapped half-way up, you don't want to go back
So you keep going on - compromising the lack}

{And you see the green fields as you travel on by
And you look at the things you'd forgotten to try
And you wish you were young and you wish you were old
For the songs always sung and the stories been told}

{And you thought you were different but what did it mean
For you tricked yourself trying - life's still unseen
As it is, as it was, as it always will be
Will you find out at all what it is to be free}

{See it never was easy to live with a head
So I kept to the back room and I live there instead
What comes from the front-room is only for friends}

I have a bay window but that's where it ends

And it's here I see pictures and my madness is clear
And there's no longer logic so therefore no fear
And I'm almost dead with uncontrollable light
Sometimes when I've written a song - it's alright
