I met a man one day as he travelled on his way

He was travelling to the place where he was born

Hoping there to find truth and peace of mind

Travelling to the place where he was born

Travelling in the early morning dawn.


Chorus:

I’ve been too long away from you now

Been too long away from you now

More and more I find

You’re more and more on my mind

I’ve been too long away from you now.


I think of all the past mistakes I think of all the time it takes

I think of all the roads I’ve travelled without you

Sometimes here and there on the pillow I saw your hair

But when the morning light grew stronger I found it wasn’t you

In the morning I was thinking of you.


Chorus:


I met a man one day as he travelled on his  way

He was travelling to the place where he was born

When he looked at me my own face I could see

I was travelling in the early morning dawn

Travelling to the place where I was born


Chorus:

I’ve been too long away from you now

Been too long away from you now

More and more I find

You’re more and more on my mind

I’ve been too long away from you now.
