Story behind the song
Another song from my youth that captures the longing in my heart for a better world.
Lyrics
Oh lately, I'ven been thinkin' it seems I'm shrinkin' and fadin' away And lately, I've been wonderin' my head is thunderin' from too much to say And lately, I've been steamin' from too much dreamin' and too much today There must have been a time when you could feel alright And never worry how you're gonna live There must have been a place you couldn't get uptight And people cared and weren't afraid to give Oh lately, I've been sighin' and I've been cryin' for those who can't see And lately, I've been achin' my heart's been breakin' for people like me And lately, I've been yearnin' for a new returnin' to the way it used to be There must have been a land where you could understand Just why you came here searchin' for the truth There must have been an age completely free from rage Where you could keep the innocence of youth But lately, it's been showin' this warm wind's blowin' the answer to me And lately, I've liked the weather we might get together eventually And lately, I've been feelin' love could be stealin' the hatred from me How can it be so hard to find someone to love? I can't believe the world just doesn't care Why should I stand alone with what I'm sufferin' of? When there's so many people who could share So lately, I've been prayin' no more delayin' will keep us apart And lately, I've been flashin' the walls are crashin' away from my heart And lately, I've been hearin' the angels appearin' to give us a start Some people haunt my brain they say that I'm insane But nothin' else makes any sense to me And if we tried awhile you know we'd learn to smile 'Cause such a happy family we could be Oh lately, I'ven been thinkin' it seems I'm shrinkin' and fadin' away And lately, I've been wonderin' my head is thunderin' from too much to say And lately, I've been steamin' from too much dreamin' and too much today
