Lyrics

I'm sittin' in the railway station, got a ticket for 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 escapin'
Home, where my music's playin'
Home, where my love lies waitin' silently for me

Lyrics continue below...

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
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
Silently for me.
