lifeblood: songs: lyrics: homeward bound


i'm sittin' in a railway station
got a ticket to my destination
mmmmm
on a tour of one-night stands
my suitcase and guitar in hand
and every stop is neatly planned
for a poet and a one-man band
homeward bound
i wish i was
homeward bound
home
where my thought's escapin'
home
where my music's playin'
home
where my love lies waitin'
silently for me

every day's an endless stream
(every day's)
of cigarettes and magazines
(an endless stream)
mmmmm
(cigarettes and magazines)
and each town looks the same to me
(each town looks)
the movies and the factories
(the same to me)
and every stranger's face i see
reminds me that i long to be
homeward bound
i wish i was
homeward bound
home
where my thought's escapin'
home
where my music's playin'
home
where my love lies waitin'
silently for me

tonight i'll sing my songs again
i'll play the game and pretend
but all my words come back to me
in shades of mediocrity
like emptiness in harmony
i need someone to comfort me
homeward bound
i wish i was
homeward bound
home
where my thought's escapin'
home
where my music's playin'
home
where my love lies waitin'
silently for me
homeward bound
(homeward bound)
i wish i was
homeward bound
(homeward bound)
home
where my thought's escapin'
home
where my music's playin'
home
where my love lies waitin'
silently for me
silently for me

home
where my thought's escapin'
home
where my music's playin'
home
where my love lies waitin'
silently for me
silently for me
silently for me
silently for me
