Tim Pope takes over directorial duties for "Say You're Wrong."   Available in two versions.... Each builds on the lyrical hook of "don't know which way to turn," with Julian as a trainman carrying one red and one green flag. He tries to alert a speeding locomotive as it rolls across the winter landscape, but it passes him by in a flurry of smoke.   He chases after it, following the tracks into a tunnel.  The camera wheels high above the scene, soaring over the train as it snakes along its predetermined route.   Turning about, the train suddenly starts chasing Julian, doubling him back to the tunnel and his starting point at an observation post near a crossroads. Could the face of a girl we glimpsed in a passenger car at the beginning have anything to do with this, or is it merely a parable of modern rail seduction? Julian's not telling, nor should he. As much burden as it is benefit, he has borne out the promise of his celebrity lineage in much the same way that the scepter of power and fortune has perennially been passed to the eldest since earliest times. How he rules his life from here awaits history's judgment, or at least a second album.- From Rock Video Idols "About His Videos: Julian Lennon" by Lenny Kaye (date unknown).

The Lyrics

 

You say you love me, but I think you're wrong
We've had times in the past when we weren't so strong
Well, I don't know which way to turn
And I don't know which way to turn

The times have changed, I can read your face
There's been so many lies and no tears with your cries
Well I don't know which way to turn
And I don't know which way to turn

I've been ashamed for so many years
I don't know how to cope when you bring out the tears
And I don't know which way to turn
'Cause I don't know which end to burn

I love you more than a man could say
We've been through a lot
gone our sep'rate ways
'Cause I don't know which way to turn
And I don't know which way to turn

I said I love you, well, I do
I don't know whether I'm wrong or whether I'm right
or which way to turn
And I don't know which way to turn
