TAKE ME BACK WHERE I BELONG

Me in 1948

LYRIC:

Take me back to the days before gas light
Take me back to the days before fist fight
I want to bathe in yellow candle light

Take me back to those long lost childhood days
Take me back to my mother’s loving gaze
I want to recapture her loving ways

Take me back to that two bed caravan
Take me back when I was her little man
I want to dream about when it began

Somebody
Take me back
Anyone
Take me back
Take me back,
Where I belong

Take me back to when I was ten years old
Take me back to before my life went cold
I want to return back inside the fold

Take me back before my dad was unkind
Take me back to my happy state of mind
I want to go there, see what I can find

Take me back to my brother’s kindly smile
Take me back beyond that old country stile
I want to take an inch, then take a mile

Somebody
Take me back
Anyone
Take me back
Take me back,
Where I belong.
