lyrics

Why Can’t The World Let Me Go

The day is bright, but the road is long,
I don’t want you to go
The past is dead, the future’s dark,
Why do I move so slow

You’re all I need, You’re all I want
I need to escape the fear
Hold me tight, don’t look back,
We’ll run away from here

Don’t let them take me away from you
Take my hand and lead me through
Why can’t the world let me be
Why can’t the world let me go

The trouble is, inside my head
I can’t take the heat
You sooth my mind, you rest my soul
And your love is such a treat

Why do they want, to take you away
To break my heart in two
I’m mad inside, I’ve lost control
I know it makes me blue

Don’t let them take me away from you
Take my hand and lead me through
Why can’t the world let me be
Why can’t the world let me go

In the late 60’s/early 70’s I had the good fortune to be a part-time roadie working the DC area, Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York for a number of bands. They included; The Jeff Beck Group, Ten Years After, The Doors, The Who, ELP and many others. So I had some interesting influences. ... more
