"I'm Going Back"

Music and Lyrics by Rachael Yamagata

From the album TIGHTROPE WALKER out 9/23

 

I’M GOING BACK 

TO WHEN YOU WERE THREE

YOU LOOKED AT THE WORLD

SO INNOCENTLY

YES I’M GOING BACK 

THE WAY WE ALL DO

WHEN LIFE WAS EASIER FOR YOU

 

I’M GOING BACK

TO AFTERNOON LIGHT

TO LONG SUMMER DAYS

AND DREAMS THROUGH THE NIGHT

FOREVER A KING

THE WORLD AT YOUR FEET

A SMILE JUST FOR YOU

A KISS ON YOUR CHEEK

 

AND I KNOW IT ISN’T EASY REMEMBERING

AND I KNOW IT ISN’T EASY TO HEAR

BUT SHE WANTS YOU TO KNOW

SHE’S NEAR

 

I’M GOING BACK 

TO EASIER TIMES

I’LL STAY TIL YOU FALL ASLEEP IN MY ARMS

MY HAND IN YOUR HAND

AND HOPE IN YOUR HEART

I’D GIVE ANYTHING TO BRING YOU BACK

TO THE START

I’D GIVE ANYTHING TO BRING YOU BACK 

TO THE START
