"Do You Know Where You're Going To?" as written by and Gerry/masser Goffin....
Do you know where you're going to?
Do you like the things that life is showing you?
Where are you going to, do you know?
Do you get what you're hoping for?
When you look behind you there's no open door.
What are you hoping for, do you know?

Once we were standing still in time,
Chasing the fantasies that filled our minds.
And you knew how I loved you but my spirit was free,
Laughing at the questions that you once asked of me.
Do you know where you're going to?
Do you like the things that life is showing you?
Where are you going to, do you know?

Now looking back at all we planned,
We let so many dreams just slip through our hands.
Why must we wait so long before we see
How sad the answers to those questions can be?

Do you know where you're going to?
Do you like the things that life is showing you?
Where are you going to, do you know?
Do you get what you're hoping for?
When you look behind you there's no open door.

    General CommentI think thsi song is about her first husband Tommy Mottola. It was released on the LP 'Valentine' around Valentines Day to throw people off. Tommy's stage name used to be Valentine, and in Petals she refers to him as Valentine. It was released in 2000 and they were divorced way before then, so who knows, maybe I'm wrong. Just a guess! Anyway, I love this song! <33
