  • Gonna lose my way tomorrow
    Gonna give away my car
    I'd take you along with me
    But you would not go so far
    Don't see what I do not want to see
    You don't hear what I don't say
    Won't be what I don't want to be
    I continue in my way

    Don't see, see, see where I'm goin'
    Don't see, see, see where I'm goin'
    Don't see, see, see where I'm goin' to
    I don't want to

    Everyday I see the mornin' come on in the same old way
    I tell myself tomorrow brings me things I would not dream today

    Gonna lose my way tomorrow
    Gonna give away my car
    I'd take you along with me
    But you would not go so far
    Don't see what I do not want to see
    You don't hear what I don't say
    Won't be what I don't want to be
    I continue in my way

    Don't see, see, see where I'm goin'
    Don't see, see, see where I'm goin'
    Don't see, see, see where I'm goin' to
    I don't want to Writer/s: IAN ANDERSON

  • Peter Hobbs from U.kBlimey!... it’s just dawned on me as I’m currently reading a biography... this song (‘A Song For Jeffrey’) fits perfectly with the legendary Soho journalist and boozer Jeffrey (Jeffrey Bernard is unwell) Bernard.
