about

After these tales of wayward relationships, it is fitting that the album includes a more personal take on love, that "home is a place where you stick around" and find that you belong, in the town that you live in, and with the partner you are with, not some fantasy destination or love interest.

lyrics

Once There Was A Sweet Way

Once there was a way to get back home
I didn’t know then, and I still don’t know
Once there was a way to get myself free
Don’t you know your freedom lies with me?
Don’t you know your freedom lies with me?
Don’t you know your freedom lies with me?

Once there was a way to be on my own
I didn’t like it then, and I still don’t now
Once there was a way I thought that I could be free
But don’t you know honestly that could never be?
Don’t you know that honestly that could never be?
Don't you know, really, that could never be?

Once there was a way to get back home
I didn’t know then, and I still don’t know
I looked to the north and I looked to the south
Couldn’t get home to Cockermouth
Couldn’t get back home to Cockermouth

Well I travelled within and I travelled without
Only to find out what I found out
You may come from the north, you may come from the south
But when you find the way, the way finds you out
If you’ve found the way my friend, you’d better watch out
Coz if you've found the way, the way finds you out

Once there was a way to get back home
I looked and I found, and now I know
Cause home is a place where you stick around
Home is a place where your love is found
Freedom and love, by sticking around
Freedom and love, by sticking around
