Verse 1;
[G]Well I came a long way to be here today and
I left you so long on this a[C]venue...
And h[D]ere I stand in the strangest land not
Knowing what to say or [G]do...

As I gaze around at these strangers in town I
guess the only stranger is m[C]e...
And I wond[D]er, yes I wonder... is this the
way life's meant to b[G]e...

Verse 2;
Although it's only a day since I was taken away and left
standing here looking in wonde[C]r...
Oh t[D]he crowd at my feet maybe it's just the old street but
every thing that I Know lies und[G]er...

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

[F]Too late too la[G]te to cry the [C]peopl[G]e s[Am]ay
[F]Too late for [G]you too late for [C]me...
[F]You've come so [G]far, nah you know [C]ev'ry [G]thing my
Love can see the one that's out my way-----

Bass solo; G, C, D, G

Oh---------------wah la...

Then Chorus
[G]As I wonder around this wreck of a town where people

never speak alo[C]ud...  with it's iv[D]ory towers and it's plastic
flowers I wish I was back in 198[G]1

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

Through oh la la's G, C, D, G, C
And I wonde[D]r, yes I wonder wonder wonder wonder is this
the way life's meant to be.[G] Ohhhhhhh
Is this the way life's meant to [G]be mmmmm
[D]Is this the way life's meant to b[G]e, I wanna know now
[D]Is this the way life's meant to b[G]e.
