Where Did You Go?

Where did you go?
You seem to have lost your self
No clue where it might have gone
When did you leave?
My best guess is half a life ago
Tell me - did you forget to let me know?
Who are you now?
Your face is so familiar
You're John, but you're not the one I used to know

Where do you go
to cancel any future plans
and forget any dreams you might have had?
Where can you go
to wipe all the care away?
'Cause no one wants you once you lose
If I ever do know,
then that's where I'll go today
forget about the chance now lost and thrown away...

If this life has a meaning, then maybe I'll remember
'Cause I have not forgotten where I'm coming from
I know that there are many who always had it worse than I
but the problem's not the road - it's with the traveller himself
who's gone and wasted every path that he had

Do I care to go
or do I even have a choice?
Wish I had the option of standing still
Just go with the flow
Why swim against the current now?
No point when the water pulls you back
And so I'm told
Nature always gets its way
Be careful where the water holds you down

Where did you go?
No sense of any road ahead
I wonder where it might have led
Now, where did you go?
I seem to have lost my self
No clue where it might have gone
So, where did you go?
Search for past identities
to remember or forget who I might have been some day...

If this life has a meaning, then maybe I'll remember
'Cause I have not forgotten where I'm coming from
I know that there are many who always had it worse than I
but the problem's not the road - it's with the traveller himself
who's gone and wasted every path that he had

Where did you go?
I seem to have lost myself
Where did you go...?
