Paul Simon – Homeward Bound lyrics

I'm sitting in the railway station.
Got a ticket to 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.

Ev'ry day's an endless stream
Of cigarettes and magazines.
And each town looks the same to me, the movies and the factories
And ev'ry 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.

    A good song for a songwriter to sing. The words written are exactly from the eyes of the traveling performer. After a while, everything looks the same, there isn't anything that hasn't already been experienced on the road somewhere, as well, songs meanings, which in the beginning of a tour had such depth, and to the audience listening still do, but to the performer, who must sing them over and over in repetition and still having to put smiles on their faces. Just doesn't feel real anymore. The longing for home is too great.
