Lyrics

[Verse 1] I'm sittin' in the railway station Got a ticket for my destination, mmm 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 [Chorus] 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 [Verse 2] Everyday's an endless stream Of cigarettes and magazines, Mmm 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 [Chorus] 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 [Verse 3] Tonight I'll sing my songs again I'll play the game and pretend, mmm But all my words come back to me In shades of mediocrity Like emptiness in harmony I need someone to comfort me [Chorus] 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 Silently for me
