Lyrics
Everything I thought I knew
Abandoned me today…
And all the shades of black and blue
Just faded into grey...

Everything I started never
seemed to have an end
Ran around most everywhere
But now I'm here again
I'm going back yeah yeah

Everything I ever loved
Got lost one starry night
But the things that hit you out of nowhere
Often shine the brightest light….

There's an hour and a day
When we all have hell to pay
I used to want to fight it
But I've learned to walk away
I'm going back….. right now…..

I'm going back
To Kansas City
I'm going back
To where I crossed that line…
I'm going back
and its such a pity
but I don't know what I left behind….

Everything I thought was good
Abandoned me that night….
Cause I never really understood…. Nothing
About what's wrong or right….No no…..

win lose or draw
we're only shadows on the wall
Somewhere in a dream one time
I know I saw it all...

And I'm going back
To Kansas City
I'm going back
To where I crossed that line
I'm going back
And its such a pity
But I don't know what I left behind...
