Kate Rusby Exile Lyrics

Last updated: 04/16/2012 11:00:00 AM

I feel a shadow passing over me
that could stay forever more
like a wave I'm breaking far in sea
there's no one to hear the roar

and the days are drifting into seasons
they're the hardest I have ever known
a million spaces in the earth to fill but
there's no going home
no going home

and I can dream before the break of day
that I'm back with you again
then the morning blows it all away
and leaves an echo of your name

and still a thousand miles lies between us
and we're waking up alone
what if I could cross a hundred borders
there's no going home
no going home

when the thunder breaks the empty sky
I shall be there
no one to hold you when the storm birds fly
is there no one left to care

and searching rumors with my hollow plans
when all I wanted is what's mine
I'm lost and lonely in this foreign land
I'm left too far behind the lines

I want to tear down these walls between us
and I can't make it alone
a million spaces in the earth to fill
and here's a generation waiting still

We've got year after year to kill
but there's no going home

no going home
no going home
no going home
no going home
no going home
no going home
no going home
no going home
no going home
