Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
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
Verse 2
And every stop is neatly planned
For a poet and a one man band
Homeward bound
I wish I was
Verse 3
Homeward bound
Home where my thought's escaping
Home where my music's playing
Home where my love lies waiting
Silently for me
Every day's an endless stream
Of cigarettes and magazines
And each town looks the same to me
The movies and the factories
Verse 4
And every stranger's face I see
Remind me that I long to be
Homeward bound
I wish I was
Verse 5
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
Verse 6
Like emptiness in harmony
I need someone to comfort me
Homeward bound
I wish I was
Verse 7
Homeward bound
Home where my thought's escaping
Home where my music's playing
Home where my love lies waiting
Silently for me
