When he left, he showed up at my door
Different than he was before
I was scared, and he was way off track
I thought he wasn’t coming back

He told me, people were out after him
And talked of places that he’d never been
On a mission, and sworn to secrecy
Different than he used to be

Back, back, and we’re glad he’s back (on track!)
It’s good to have him back, he’s back
Back, back, and we’re glad he’s back (on track!)
It’s good to have him back, he’s back

When he was gone, he slept out on my couch
In the daytime he was always out
I never knew where he went
Or how his afternoons were spent

He said, he had to slay a dragon
Kill a giant, fix a wagon
Wage a war, feed the world and stamp out sin
In the daytime he was never in

Back, back, and we’re glad he’s back (on track!)
It’s good to have him back, he’s back
Back, back, and we’re glad he’s back (on track!)
It’s good to have him back, he’s back

I’m a freight train baby, don’t give me no sidetrack, no!
I want your main line baby
Climb aboard the Eden Express!
This train is coming through
This train is bound for glory
This train, this train is comig through
This train is bound for glory!

When he left, he showed up at my door
Different than he was before
I was scared and he was way off track
I thought he wasn’t coming back

When he spoke it was tough to tell
He ever left or wasn’t well
Lost his balance tripped and fell
He came back and we were glad as hell

When he came back, he showed up at my door
Different than he was before
I was geared ’cause he was back on track
It’s good to have my old friend back

Back, back, and we’re glad he’s back (on track!)
It’s good to have him back, he’s back
Back, back, and we’re glad he’s back (on track!)
It’s good to have him back, he’s back!
