Home Is Where I'll Head

This song was created for Game of Bands round 221 : "Only One Instrument III"

Lyrics:

Found myself in this crumbling place
Hell is raging all around
Mud and guts upon my face
No way I’m dying in this far away place

I hear her cry, reaching out for me
Feel it in my heart, it sings
Step by step, I’m walking on and out
Home is where I’ll head

Whispers of the dead,
Chilling my soul, I’m back in the role
Back in the romance I was fed,
I strip away the fable and clear my head

Sipping rum in Montego Bay,
An age apart from where I’ve been
From khaki to a suit, I went my way
To here in paradise, for the rest of days

I hear her cry, reaching out for me
Feel it in my heart, it sings
Step by step, I’m walking on and out
Home is where I’ll head

One step at a time, on the yellow brick road
From living for glory, to living for life
Surrounded by love, came back from the fire,
My love and my home, our miracle child,
In family, peace, and love, my only desire

I hear it call, beckoning for me
Feel it in my heart, it sings
Every step I walked it moved me on
Home is where I rest my head
Been to war, been with family
I’ve lived and loved and found my peace
Been a thousand places, seen so many faces
And loved the world that wanted me dead

Home
[Exit]
