Johnnyswim – Home lyrics

Right 'round the corner
Down by the canyon
I met a man who lost his way.

He said I'm the son
Of a sailor
Who never showed me his face.

But daddy's gone.
And my momma met a maker
Oh to hell with that place.

So I said quit your talking
Your sideways walking
Time to find another path to take.

Quit your wining
Your blood-shot crying
Faking like you're dying never pays.

Just go home.
You need you some home.
Oh you need you some home.

Her name was Peggy Sue.
And her daddy hung the moon.
In her eyes, he could do no wrong.

But then he started drinking
Like there's a message in the bottle.
Now daddy's painting Peggy black and blue.

She closes her eyes
Through the hero's demise.
Holds to her hope beyond the sky.

She takes a breath.
Weight comes off her chest.
She finds a way to weather through the storm.

She cried out home.
I need me some home.
Oh I need some home.
(Some home)

I found myself on a train to California.
At twenty-five years of age.
Set beside me was a lonely rose of wanderer.
Two's always better they say.

So we made our plans.
She gave me a hand.
We ain't go no time for looking back.

I was bruised and beaten.
Lost for many reasons.
Only love would make you understand.

I love me some home.
I love me some home.
(Some home)
Hey I love me some home.

We're all bruised and beaten.
Lost on account of many reasons.
But only love would make you understand.

Oh I love me some home.
Oh I love me some home.
(Love me some home.)
Yeah I love me some home.
Oh I love me some home.
(Love me some home.)

Love me some home.
