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

Homeward bound
I wish I was
Homeward bound
Home, where my thought's escaping
Home, where my music's playing
Home, where my love life's waiting
Silently for me

Everyday'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

Homeward bound
I wish I was
Homeward bound
Home, where my thought's escaping
Home, where my music's playing
Home, where my love life's 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 emptyness 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 life's waiting
Silently for me
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.
