Billy Bragg – Distant Shore lyrics

Everyone knows
That there's no place like home
But I'm just seeking refuge
In a world full of storms

Washed up on a distant shore
Can't go home anymore

The natives are hostile
Whatever I say
The thing they fear most is
That I might want to stay

By their side on a distant shore
Can't go home anymore

I escape my tormentors
By crossing the sea
What I cannot escape is

Far away on a distant shore
Can't go home anymore
