Boomerang

Hitched a ride on a boomerang

Tired of staying in my memory lane

Threw me back to where I swore I'd never go again

Then again I wasn't ready then

 

But it's the dawning of a brand-new day

I see the light in a different way

Set up right from the start

Stepped up to a change of heart

Sure am glad I came

But I'll be on my way all the same

 

Why do you have to go away

Why has it got to be today

Whenever you come back around

That'll be me

Camping out by the lost and found

 

Day by day the picture's clearer

Must've missed you in the rearview mirror

Thought I discarded you altogether

Funny how trash and treasure go together

 

Dancing with the devil you know

Won't get where you want to go

Bill of goods you were sold

Pot just went up tenfold

When the stakes became too high

I just packed up my things

And I said goodbye

 

Why do you have to go away

Why has it got to be today

Whenever you come back around

That'll be me

Camping out by the lost and found

 

Gimme one more crack take me back boomerang

Another rodeo one more throw boomerang

Take another swing one more fling boomerang

Just one more try let her fly boomerang
