Homeward Bound Lyrics - Paul Simon

Review The Song (4)



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

[Chorus:]
Homeward bound, I wish I was homeward bound
Home, where my thoughts escapin', home, where my music's playin'
Home, where my love lies waitin' 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

[Chorus]

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 and harmony, I need someone to comfort me

[Chorus repeats 2x]

Silently for me

Where 'twas written | Reviewer: Jack Cheese | 11/9/11

Paul Simon was on a tour performing at various venues in England. When he wrote this song he was on the railway station at Widnes, Cheshire, waiting for a train to go to his next gig.

At the time he was in a relationship with an English girl, Kathy Chitty. Kathy broke up with Paul Simon when he began to get famous, because she could not handle that part.

This was a few miles from where I grew up as a child.



I found it!! | Reviewer: BreAnne | 10/11/08

In the quiet misty morning,when the moon has gone to bed. And the sparrows stop their singing I'll be homeward bound again. Bind me ot to the pasture ,chain me not to the plow, set me free to find my calling, and I'll be homeward bound in time. If you find its me you missing, if your hoping I'll return to your thoughts I'll soon be listening, in the road I'll stop and turn. Then the wind will set me racing , as my journey nears its end and the path I'll be retracing when I'm homeward bound again. Bind me not to the pasture , chain me not to the plow, set me free to find my calling, I'll be homeward bound again. In the quiet misty morning , when the moon has gone to bed , when the sparrows srop teir singing I'll be home again.

the REAL homeward bound | Reviewer: Deirdre | 11/9/07

In the quiet misty morning
when the moon has gone to bed,
When the sparrows stop their singing,
and the sky is clear and red
