about

The only track on the album to lean towards a more rural blues sound, Looking For The Way Home is part Bo Diddley groove, part Little Feat country-funk, with a thoughtful Paul Simon-esque lyric lamenting the trials and tribulations of modern life. It is the only track on the album to feature slide guitar, however it is Jonny Dyke’s piano that steals the show with some great syncopated licks throughout and a dazzling outro solo.

lyrics

Looking For The Way Home (Taylor)

I remember I was young
And all of this was fields as far as the eye could see
Well that’s not exactly true
But things have definitely changed round here believe me

Victory is often had by sinners
History is written by the winners
The future’s an imaginary land
Where politicians don’t inhale
Righteous men wind up in jail
But nobody can see the signs
Cos everybody’s looking for the way home

I remember I was young
And everything was fine and seemed so easy
Well that’s not exactly true
But things are definitely harder now believe me

Fashions change without a bye or leave
Nostalgia isn’t what it used to be
But you can do exactly as you please
Unless you want to speak your mind
I’m sorry but your card’s declined
The motorway’s backed up again
Cos everybody’s looking for the way home

The sun is always shining on the way home
The cotton’s always rising on the way home
The fish are always jumping on the way home
Your heart forever pumping

We’re shrinking the expanding universe
Communication’s only getting worse
Everything is different now but nothing ever changes
You can risk a heart attack
Trying to take the power back
Best to try enjoy the b umpy ride
While we’re looking for the way home
