lyrics

Never forget who you are
That’s what my father said
And he told this to me when I was a boy

Now I’m grown and on my own
Far from my father’s care
So I’ll think about the words and what they mean

When I choose words and plot my course
And try to find my way
But in spite of his directions I am lost.

Always remember where you’re from
That’s what my father said
So I’ll think about the memories of my home

And attempt a bold and grandiose escape
Of a life that never let’s me show my face
Can’t catch up to me if I’m not still
At the speed of life until I stop dead in my tracks
I’m going back
Back where I’m from

No, I won’t forget where I’m from, no I won’t
I know I’m going home

And attempt a bold and grandiose escape
Of a life that never let’s me show my face
Can’t catch up to me if I’m not still
At the speed of life until I stop dead in my tracks
I’m going back
Back where I’m from
Home.
