Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Train entering the city - I lost myself and never came back
Took a trip around the world and never came back
Black silhouettes, crisscrossed tracks never came back
Verse 2
Forever changed, forever changed
Verse 3
You might think I'm frivolous, uncaring and cold
You might think I'm frivolous - depends on your point of view
Society Andy who paints and records them - the high and the low
I left my old life behind me and never went back
Forever changed, forever changed
Verse 4
Got to get to the city - get a job
Got to get some work to see me through
My old life's disappearing from view
Hong Kong - and I was changed
Burma and India - and I was changed
Only art to see me through
Only heart to see me through
My old life disappearing from view
Brigid and Pat - please see me through
The whole thing quickly receding
My life disappearing - disappearing from view
Forever changed, forever changed
I left my old life behind and was forever changed
Forever changed
