In this paint-by-numbers fairytale,
I live outside the lines,
With my yellows and my reds mixed up,
I do not answer why,
As I paint a perfect landscape,
I am losing all my friends,
And I am learning,
That you can't go home again,

I am counting all the freeway signs,
And rivers as we go,
Out on Highway 6 in Illinois,
The afternoon rolls on,
Months of loneliness feed every word,
That pours out from my pen,
And I am learning,
That you can't go home again,

You can't go home again,
All your memories washed away,
Can't go home again,
Other summers took their place,
Can't go home again,
All I can say is I wish I could...

With this summer rolling endlessly,
It's hard to sleep at night,
Life is standing in a cemetery,
Counting down your time,
And I would try to write a letter,
If I could think of words to send,
But all I'm sure of,
Is you can't go home again,

Can't go home again,
All your memories washed away,
Can't go home again,
Other summers took their place,
Can't go home again,
Whitewashed colors of the paint,
Can't go home again,
But you can never get away,

Can't go home again,
Though you traveled many miles,
Can't go home again,
No matter how you burn inside,
Can't go home again,
All I can say is I wish I could...
