Trying to Find a Way

Verse 1
In the back of my mind I’ve been gone so long
traveled on so many roads, all alone.

Got my suitcase by my side, it’s been my friend,
with me in every place that I’ve been.

Change So I figured out to day, trying to get away, I’m trying
to find my way to get back home. Trying to find a way,
I’m trying to find a way to get back home.
trying to find a way back to where I belong..

Verse 2 I played my guitar, sang a few songs, did some right sometimes
did some wrong…

Almost went to far gave up my soul, wanted to get back home
before I got too old.

Change So I figured out today, trying to get away, trying to find a way
to get back home. Trying to find a way, I’m trying to find a way
to get back home. Trying to find a way back to where I belong..

Solo

Bridge You know you did some right some wrong, traveling on so many
Roads. Trying to make a difference to where you came from.

You know you did some right some wrong, traveling on so many
roads, Trying to find a way back to where you belong.

They say my lover will set me on fire.
They say he will fill me with his charms, and I’ll
Find safety in my lovers arms.

Ooo, lover come, when my lover comes, lover come, when
My lover comes.

Bridge All the pain, all the tears, all the pain, all the tears, all the hurt
All the fears, will be gone…when my lover comes, when my

Lover come. Everything will be alright, lover come, when my
Lover comes.. fade to vamp.
