wrong century lyrics – happy rhodes

last thing i remember
i was standing on a hill
shaking out my long black hair
i heard the song of an angel
rising from the trees
i made my way to the source
and it was gone

now here i am
i don’t recognize this village
where things are made of
gl*ss and metal

a man is walking toward me
and he’s looking pretty strange
he says, “girl, i think you’ve
come to the wrong century”

now let me get this straight, man
not only am i woman
but i’m stuck in this spooky world?
where everybody moves too fast and
where are all the trees?

i don’t think i can live
in this wrong century

get me out of here
show me to my homeland
get me out of here
i miss my hill
i will not live in fear
of self-destruct
i am a peaceful man
i don’t think i can understand
this

is this where it stands now?
must i remain
in this grey and dismal year?
it’s plain to see i’m a foreigner
it’s clear i do not blend
still i make a home
in this wrong century

get me out of here
show me to my homeland
get me out of here
i miss my hill
i will not live in fear
of self-destruct
i am a peaceful man
gentle man

get me out of here
show me to my homeland
get me out of here
i miss my hill
i will not live in fear
of self-destruct
i am a peaceful man
gentle man

i don’t think i can understand
this
