Music and lyrics by James Carrington

lyrics

Jonas was always a stranger
He came from a family of two
He lived with his mother and hard drinking brother
They stuck to each other like glue

Jonas spent most of the time on his own wondering why he was here
He asked all the questions he thought would explain
The meaning behind all the fear

(Jonas come back now)

Jonas was always excited by silence
He craved for the voices to stop
Sitting upstairs in a room full of pictures
His memory filled up the gaps

Clearing his mind was his favorite past time
And he practiced for hours on end
Learning to cope while he climbed up that slope
Was the only way that he could mend

Oh can’t you see for yourself what the circumstances can do
Oh and you cry out at night cos its nothing to do with you

Jonas come back now
You’ve been sidetracked now
But it’s alright
You’ll be alright
Yes it’s alright, you’ll be alright now

Running and hiding and just not deciding it’s sad but it’s wonderful too
Learning to cope while you climb up that slope
is the only way forward for you

Oh can’t you see for yourself what the circumstances can do
Oh and you cry out at night cos its nothing to do with you
Oh can’t you see for yourself what the circumstances can do
Oh and you cry out at night cos its nothing to do with you

Jonas come back now
You’ve been sidetracked now
Jonas come back now
You’ve been sidetracked now

But it’s alright
You’ll be alright
Yes it’s alright
You’ll be alright now

Jonas come back now
Jonas come back now
Jonas come back now, Jonas come back now
