  • Got a ticket for my destination.
    On a tour of one-night stands
    My suitcase and guitar in hand.
    And ev'ry 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 is 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 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.
    Silently for me
