Upon my return from the Great Northwest to my roots in the midwest-I realized that I had changed as a result of my experiences -this created some very uncomfortable feelings/friction with friends and family in that they still viewed me-wanted to remember

When he was oh so young
He went seeking adventure on his own

After many years of drifting
He got tired and decided to head back home

Once he got back to his roots
Found he didn?t belong there any more

Like John pointed out to Charlie
He was just a ghost there and nothing more

Had no place that felt like home
No one felt like his family

Had no place he belonged
No place he felt like he should be

CHORUS
You can?t go back
You can?t go back oh no

You can?t go back
You can?t go back oh no
You can?t go back
You can?t go back oh no

You can?t go back
You can?t go back oh no

Felt like his soul was lost at sea
Didn?t have a clue where he should go

Yet he set off for new shores
Had to find a place that felt like home

Hope to find some fertile ground
Plant his roots and settle down

Find a place where he would be content
Getting tired of all this drifting around

Find a place that felt like home
And start his own family

Find a place where he?d belong
A place he?d feel like he should be

CHORUS

Instrumental break
