Steve Winwood - Can't Find My Way Home Lyrics

Come down off your throne and leave your body alone - somebody must change
You are the reason I've been waiting so long - somebody holds the key
Well, I'm near the end and I just ain't got the time
And I'm wasted and I can't find my way home

Come down on your own and leave your body alone - somebody must change
You are the reason I've been waiting all these years - somebody holds the key
Well, I'm near the end and I just ain't got the time
And I'm wasted and I can't find my way home

Steve Winwood Can't Find My Way Home Comments
  1. placid renegade

    Beautiful song, England had some great musicians.

  2. Nathan McCrackan

    Awesome  :)

  3. Michael Byers

    The line, "At the age of 14 Winwood joined the Spencer Davis Group,..." from his bio on Wikipedia, just amazes me. More amazing was that he had been, "backing blues singers such as Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, T-Bone Walker, Howlin' Wolf, B. B. King, Sonny Boy Williamson II, Eddie Boyd, Otis Spann, Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley on their United Kingdom tours" before that. What a bold and talented individual!

    Goosebumps every time. Can I have those mics? And where do you buy snare firewood?

  5. Cowcharge

    @adwani64 You beat me to it (by a year lol), goosebumps every time.

  6. Mike S

    Winwood plays in drop tuning lolz HEAVY METAL \m/ xD

  7. Conrad C Hanafee

    Your voice has always been tremendious, you said plenty of sleep was one on the keys to that ...& no cigars on tour!! I wonder if this settin is in the old dairy barn thing you record in now. Record another, we enjoy!

  8. Ken Sablay

    What is that- Open "D"tuning?

  9. jerrypoin

    Probably listened to this a hundred times and am still in awe. Always been a fan of Steves', but this one is his best!

  10. yarsnrub

    My favorite song.

  11. hgerrard

    I wish he didn't drop his tuning down 2 frets.....Beautiful song. He's great...

  12. WoodenBadger77

    AWESOME Version! Drop *C* tuning? haha. I don't blame you, that song wails in D. And in this laid back setting sounds great in this key.

  13. Scott Collom

    I s he a whole step dropped?...yea sounds great!!

  14. Miguel Castellanos

    Priceless!!! My favorite BF song!!! I love this all-acoustic rendition!!! Thanks Sir Steve!!! You surely still have "IT"!!

  15. Wynn Smith

    Wow, a whole year since another comment.
    Is Steve not remarkable?
    Can't even say "Great song." or "Good work!"?

  16. xianland

    tout tout bon !!

  17. Stan Beacham

    Mesmerizing—voice and guitar. It just doesn't get better than this!

  18. f_17

    fucking genius

  19. Kimberly Baker

    did he win?? very good!!

  20. Tony Miles

    The master shows how it should be done!

  21. jonesfoto

    Humbling, right? What pure, raw beauty.

  22. Kevin Lawrence ODonnell

    In the late 60's early 70's such a magic ship of albums that sailed crisscrossing the Atlantic, from England to the States and the States to England. What a glorious time to be young and turned onto music such as this.

  23. Sir4Paco

    the more I listen to this, the more I feel for you, the more your passion, your loneliness, your soul touches me, deep deep deep inside. Thank you so much :)

  24. Stuart Walker

    Amazing Legend

  25. dmanbass

    I tuned my Yamaha down one whole step and dropped the low E to a D and it sounds just like his, minus the particular sound you get from a Martin of course. The timing of his playing is really amazing. He gets a feel going from the start and runs with it and used his guitar and voice to amazing ends. The balance is beautiful. I agree about his vocals being very, very good. After all these years, there is still hope. If this is the bar I am looking for a way UNDER it ;-)

  26. Eberhard Klunker

    This is so good, it sets the standard very very high....Legend.

  27. samansun

    sitting all alone by the fireside,
    listen to the wind in the chimney top...

  28. 1958wvpicker

    and your guitar playing is Excellent

    Oh Lordy, Steve!

    What a sweet version of this song, with the Martin in hand; and your vocals on this have never been better! I'm so glad I found this channel.

    Caught the band at the House of Blues last time there. Great, great show!

    Thanks for such a terrific and extensive songbook, and so happy that you and Eric are working together again too!

    God bless!

    Any more videos of Steve performing acoustic versions of his songs?
    If you're in the uk you can see
    "Steve Winwood: English Soul" on the BBCi player until 27th Jun

    At 29 minutes there's a clip of Steve playing Dear Mr fantasy (looks like it's from the same 'session'). Only a few seconds though. Would love to hear the full version
