 When you left someone behind to follow at star

But then it fell so flat, you didn’t get very far

You look back and see the world you left behind

Where you were meant to be

But were to close to see the tapestry

That’s Boomerang

That’s Boomerang

When you walk away

Then you run back to stay

That’s Boomerang

That’s Boomerang

That’s Boomerang

When you moved back home to help out family

You left your life behind

You left your sanity

Then your friends back here reached out and pulled you near

They all paved the way for you to come back to stay

That’s Boomerang

That’s Boomerang

That’s Boomerang

That’s Boomerang

When you walk away

Then you run back to stay

That’s Boomerang

That’s Boomerang

That’s Boomerang

When you feel lost inside

You get inside your car

You drive all through the night

You don’t care where or how far

Then you wake and feel a pang inside you’re found

So you grab your keys

And turn the car around…

*When you let your dreams

Slip through your fingers

Yet somehow, they seem to linger

Till one day you pull them

Out of the drawer and you

Start right back where you left them before

That’s Boomerang

That’s Boomerang

When you walk away

Then you run back to stay

That’s Boomerang

That’s Boomerang

That’s Boomerang
