"Back To Where I Was" as written by and Eric Hutchinson....
New life decides to come through the front door
And makes us wish we'd shown respect before
Though I don't have much of a choice
I resolve to regain my voice

If I only just begin to understand it that's because
Everytime I time I start to change my mind again
It gets me back to where I was

New life we never had a clue
The two of us deciding what to do
Though my hands are all but tied
I rebound so I can say at least I tried


And long as I'm allowed I'll change my mind that's what it's for
I'm getting older but I'm still the same I'm just thinking anymore

    General CommentSounds like he might be just reflecting on how he contemplates change, but never really truly welcomes it and even resists it ("makes us wish we'd paid respects before") He's finding that although he tries new things, and puts himself in new situations, he always feels like he winds up "back to where he was". He says too that "I'm getting older but I'm still the same"

    This is just how I see it because this is how I view change. It never seems to change me. I'm never moved in ways that make me feel like "Gee, I am SOO different than I was x number of years ago." I actually had a friend's parent tell me that I was exactly the same, but she said it in a good way. Basically, change is ovverrated is what I get from this song. <3
