    Lyrics

    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?
