Lyrics
Can’t get back, get back home
Can’t get back, get back home

Well, I was down and out and lonely on a summer night
When I found my world deep inside your dreams
Now what is this? Now hold on! How can this be right?
I found my love was sinking with your screams

But I’m alone again, yes I’m on my own
Can’t even take a breather inside my own home
Because you can’t get back when you’re own
Never on track when you lose the tone

Can’t get back, get back home
Can’t get back, get back home

Well, I was high and low and heavy since I lost the way
I looked around to find some brand new dreams
There was laughter in the night until I found the day
I found my love was sinking with your schemes

But I’m alone again, yes I’m on my own
Can’t even take a breather inside my own home
Because you can’t get back when you’re own
Never on track when you lose the tone

Analysis: This song was totally rebuilt in 1990 from the original in 1987, which used electric guitars and did not include the intro hook. Nevertheless, it comes across as an early folk song, which was the intent all along.
