Why Would You Go Back by Jeni Varnadeau


Lyrics
There was an old woman who lived in a shoe
Who told me a tale of a man she once knew
He walked around town with a rock on his shoulder
And each day she'd watch him growing older

All that he knew was the life of his past
He couldn't move forward, he kept looking back
He carried this boulder just like his dad used to do
He didn't know why
But he thought he was supposed to
What else could he do?

Why would he go back
To the burdens that he knew before?
Why would he go back
When he could walk in joy and freedom?
He don't have to believe he was meant for that
Why, why would he go back?

There's just one place where he'd lay the stone down
At his friend's glass house at the edge of town
He'd go visit and he'd be so glad
And rattle on and on about the good time he had
Telling his friend as he'd head toward the door
He wished his own life could be this way more
As he leans down to pick up his stone

Why would he go back
To the burdens that he knew before?
Why would he go back
When he could walk in joy and freedom?
He don't have to believe he was meant for that
Why, why would he go back?

Why would you go back
To the burdens that you knew before?
Why would you go back
When you could walk in joy and freedom?
You don't have to believe you were meant for that
Why, oh tell me why
Yeah why, why would you go back?
Why would you go back?
