Journey Home ~ Home

Too many miles, too many trials
On too many blackened roads;
This unsteady man’s more ready
To come back home, haversack
In hand, no cool brand, but sand
From senseless journeys, sleeping
On gurneys; is home ready for him?
Afraid but he wonders…

Who’s gonna jump with me in a fresh pile of Autumn leaves?
Who’s gonna walk with me to take honey from honey bees?
There they are in my mind, turning my whole world around,
With smiles and laughing sounds.

He’d played the bad boy, sad boy,
Cool roy placing another bet all
To enjoy another round in the room
Full of flashing lights and sound
Bound to make an young man lost
But he’d been found now, and now,
And now the time had come round
To find his home again, begin again.

Who’s gonna jump with me in a fresh pile of Autumn leaves?
Who’s gonna walk with me to take honey from honey bees?
There they are in my mind, turning my whole world around,
With smiles and laughing sounds.

He’d placed his bets, drunken voice,
And played the joker-fool by choice,
No turning back to what was behind,
Oh no, to the kind he’d left behind,
So far behind, so long ago to throw
Out the dice, but life’d not been nice,
So far, for all these years, shed tears,
But would home be home, so far so near?

Who’s gonna jump with me in a fresh pile of Autumn leaves?
Who’s gonna walk with me to take honey from honey bees?
There they are in my mind, turning my whole world around,
With smiles and laughing sounds.

Just around another bend, with all the love he could send,
But could he mend broken fences to end his wanderings?
Hope is all he had packed now in his dirty ole haversack.

Who’s gonna jump with me in a fresh pile of Autumn leaves?
Who’s gonna walk with me to take honey from honey bees?
There they are in my mind, turning my whole world around,
With smiles and laughing sounds.

With smiles and laughing sounds.

Sounds of home…
