You Can Go Back Home Again

(Second Fret -- Tuning CGDGBD)

I leave The Michelangelo,
where women never come and go,
and ride down Seventh Avenue,
through winter's early snow -

And soon we're on Jerusalem,
I still remember how to go.
I tell my driver what I know,
and where to turn for home.

And the naked trees on every street
are in a dream that calls me

Chorus

I go back
to say I'm sorry,
for the things I didn't do.
Ride my bike,
back down that highway
in my endless search for you.
And if I find you there,
where I left you then,
then I will know -
you can go back home again.
2.

I ride past all the Christmas lights
all strung across those hopeful nights,
and feel like I might make it right,
before it's time to go.

The children's voices sing to me,
It feels just like they set me free,
And once again I hear the sound
that I was meant to know.

And the naked trees on every street
are in a dream that calls me

(Chorus)






Bridge

And how many years did I turn away?
How many years did I wait?
And how many tears did you shed for me
when you said to me it's never too late.


3.

We make our way through Central Park
And watch the moonlight kiss the dark,
And in the morning I will tell
The way I found my heart again.
