Back Again

Inspired by life's set backs

I woke up one morning my life it had changed
The things I had known long had been rearranged
I looked at myself and knew not to see
Who I had become who I was to be

I once was a man who was so confident
In what I could do and in what I present
That all has been gone for quite a while now
I know I can't deal I just don't know how

I've got to get back to who I once was
I've got to be back it's important because
I need myself back to help others dig out
Of places like this and what I'm all about…. now

I'm going to get out of this lousy abyss
I'm going to get out and then you'll hear me hiss
All of you people who helped get me here
Will see me come back strong will see me reappear

(chorus)
And I will come back so strong
And I once again will belong
To the strong and the willing of heart
And stop again this tearing apart….. of my soul

I'll wake up tomorrow my life will have changed
The thing that I am now will be rearranged
I'll look at myself and I'll like what I see
What I have become who I am to be

I'll be a new man who is exuding life
I'll be the new man who overcame strife
I'll be who I should be who I know I can
I'll come back and show them that I am a man

I gonna get back to who I once was
I'm gonna get back it's important because
There's others that need me to help them dig out
Of places I was and what I was about… then

And then I'll be out of this negative hole
A place where I've known a place I won't go
And then all the people who helped get me there
Will see a new person that's not in despair

(chorus)
And I will come back so strong
And I once again will belong
To the strong and the willing of heart
And stop forever this tearing apart…. of my soul
