LYRIC

Well, I came a long way to be here today

And I left you so long on this avenue

And here I stand in the strangest land

Not knowing what to say or do

As I gaze around at these strangers in town

I guess the only stranger is me

And I wonder (yes, I wonder)

Yes, I wonder (oh, I wonder)

Is this the way life's meant to be?

Although it's only a day since I was taken away

And left standing here looking in wonder

(It's your life, it's your life)

Ah, the ground at my feet, maybe it's just the old street

But everything that I know lies under

(It's your life, it's your life)

And when I see what they've done

To this place that was home

Shame is all that I feel

Oh, and I wonder (oh, I wonder)

Yes, I wonder (wonder, wonder, wonder, wonder)

Is this the way life's meant to be?

Too late, too late to cry

The people say

Too late for you, too late for me

You've come so far, now you know everything my friend

Look and see the wonders of our world...

And I wonder (oh, I wonder)

Yes, I wonder (yes, I wonder)

Is this the way life's meant to be?

As I wander around this wreck of a town

Where people never speak aloud

With its ivory towers and its plastic flowers

I wish I was back in 1981

Just to see your face instead of this place

Now I know what you mean to me

And I wonder (oh, I wonder)

Yes, I wonder (yes, I wonder)

Is this the way life's meant to be?

And I wonder (oh, I wonder)

Yes, I wonder, wonder, wonder, wonder

Is this the way life's meant to be?

Ooohh, I wonder

Oh, I wonder, wonder, wonder

Is this the way life's meant to be?

Oh, is this the way life's meant to be?

Mmmmm, is this the way life's meant to be?

I wanna know now

Is this the way life's meant to be?
