Song Lyrics

I’m sitting in the railway station
Got a ticket to my destination

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 escaping
Home where my music’s playing
Home where my love lies waiting
Silently for me

Every day’s an endless stream
Of cigarettes and magazines

And each town looks the same to me, the movies and the factories
And every stranger’s face I see reminds me that I long to be
Homeward bound

Oh and
I wish I was
Homeward bound

Home where my thought’s escaping
Home where my music’s playing
Home where my love lies waiting
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 escaping
Home where my music’s playing
Home where my love lies waiting
Silently for me

Homeward bound.
Oh I wish I was.
Homeward bound.

Home where my thought’s escaping
Home where my music’s playing
Home where my love lies waiting
Silently for me

Silently for me
