 Well I came a long way to be here today and

I left you so long on this avenue...

And I wonder, yes I wonder... is this the
 G
way life's meant to be...

Verse 2;
 G
Although it's only a day since I was taken away and left
 C
standing here looking in wonder...
 D
Oh the crowd at my feet maybe it's just the old street but
 G
every thing that I Know lies under...

And when I see what they've done to this place that was
 C
home, shame is all that I feel... Ohhh

 G
 As I wonder around this wreck of a town where people

 CD
never speak aloud...  with it's ivory towers and it's plastic
 G
flowers I wish I was back in 1981

Just to see your face in stead of this place now I know what
 C
you mean to me. Ohhhh
Then chorus

Through oh la la's G, C, D, G, C
 D
And I wonder, yes I wonder wonder wonder wonder is this
 G
the way life's meant to be. Ohhhhhhh

 Is this the way life's meant to be.
