"The Turns We Took" as written by and Stuart Ashton Staples David Leonard Leonard Boulter....
The turns we took to get here...
the turns we took to get here...

The turns we took to get here
but the ending is it so near?
'cause we set out so long ago...
I can't remember how or why we took that road
I can't remember how...

Sometimes I wonder about
(The turns we took to get here.)
and I wander backwards through my mind
(The turns we took to get here.)
always that feckless youth,
taking me down roads I never wanted to travel
is that how I got here?

But our song is carried on the wind
and we chase so hard we fall
she sees me down upon my knees
and says 'Hey Charlie boy, it's time to come on home,
it's time to stop pretending.'

Somewhere in my house is a piece of paper
(The turns we took to get here.)
a story that brings us to this place
(The turns we took to get here.)
and I follow back down that line.
('Cause we set out so long ago …)
always that boy, scared of his own shadow,
(The turns we took to get here.)
always that boy,
(The turns we took to get here.)
turning me off, turning me on

The turns we took to get here
the turns we took to get here
but the ending is it so near?
the turns we took to get here
Ohhh …
the turns we took to get here
