​Time Was Leading Us Home

This song is by Peter Sarstedt and appears on the album Peter Sarstedt (1969) and on the compilation album The Story Of Pop (1976).

Turn your face away from the light
Turn your face away
Turn your face away from the light
Turn your face away
Turn your face away from the light
Turn your face away

And we formed a circle on the floor,
No one spoke a single word,
Held together in their perfect dream,
Wrapped in cellophane and cream,
My it was was helplessly approaching us
Day would then complete itself

And time was leading us to ourselves
Time was leading us on
Time was leading us to ourselves
Time was leading us on

Damien placed his hat upon my head,
As I put my hand upon,
Mary's cuddly little teddy bear,
Who was sitting silently

And time was leading us to ourselves
Time was leading us on
Time was leading us to ourselves
Time was leading us on

Gradually the mood was breaking down,
As we grinned our final grins,
And goodbye was said most perfectly,
We were young and satisfied

And time was leading us to ourselves
Time was leading us on
Time was leading us to ourselves
Time was leading us on

Time was leading us to ourselves
Time was leading us on
Time was leading us to ourselves
Time was leading us on

...The light
Turn your face away
Go find yourself a fantasy world
Find another way

All you have to give is needed
Don't you spare a single smile
Stay young, as you are,
Young as you are

So
Turn your face away from the light
Turn your face away
Turn your face away from the light
Turn your face away, yippee
Turn your face away from the light
Turn your face away
