"Way Back Home" as written by Jack Glass and Christopher John Stracey....
Rain pours down over a city
Night has fallen like a stone
Are you gone or are you with me?
In my heart I'll never know
If I close my eyes I'll see you
Hear your footsteps in the rain
In my dream I'll never find you
but I'll hear you call my name

As I tread through crowds of people
Trying to keep from looking back
Got your sense on something passing
And it sends me off my track

Do I find you will I follow
To forever and a day
I can feel you in the distance
But you seem so far away

What if I just can't find my way back home (ooh)
What about all the things I just don't don't know (ooh)
What if I just can't find my way back home (ooh)
Would you be there to show me where to go (ooh)

    My InterpretationThis is such a personal song for me. It's that experience of getting over a certain person, while aching for them. This person symbolizes or is a clear path for me. Without them, I'm lost, and yet I should move on...but how can I, if they are pretty much the compass?

    MemoryI pretty much agree on the precious interpretation; to me, it has a personal meaning as well.
    I lost a loved one, she died, and I know the feeling to feel her in the distance, but of course she seems far away. "Are you gone or are you with me?/In my heart I'll never know" can then mean that I am asking myself if she is still there as some kind of ghost or has gone to Heaven, or is just not there anymore. There is no possibility of finding out what happened to her soul and stuff like that.
    Without her it's sometimes difficult to find my own way back, home as well as through life.
