Steve Winwood (Blind Faith) - "Can't Find My Way Home"

Steve Winwood (Blind Faith) - "Can't Find My Way Home"

Steve Winwood plays an acoustic version of Blind Faith's "Can't Find My Way Home"



Blind Faith was a Supergroup made up of Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Ginger Baker, and Ric Grech. They released just one album, which topped both the UK and US charts around the same time the group was breaking up.


Winwood wrote this and sang lead. Many critics noted that Blind Faith sounded a lot more like Winwood's old band Traffic than Clapton's Cream, which is what Clapton was going for.


Clapton played acoustic guitar on this track, which is something he rarely did. In his previous group, Cream, he played long, intense solos, something he wanted to get away from with Blind Faith.





Lyrics


Come down off your throne 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


I can't find my way home

But I can't find my way home

But I can't find my way home

But I can't find my way home

Still I can't find my way home


And I've done nothing wrong

But I can't find my way home
