Simon & Garfunkel - Homeward bound
Tekst en muziek: Paul Simon
(1966)






I’m sitting in the railway station
Got a ticket for my destination, mmm
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, were my thoughts escaping
Home, were my music’s playing
Home, were my love lies waiting silently for me



Every day is an endless stream
Of cigarettes and magazines, mmm
And each town looks the same to me
The movies and the factories
And every strangers face I see
Reminds me that I long to be



Homeward bound, I wish I was
Homeward bound
Home, were my thoughts escaping
Home, were my music’s playing
Home, were my love lies waiting silently for me



Tonight I’ll sing my songs again
I’ll play the game and pretend, mmm
But all my words come back to me
In shades of mediocrity
Like emptiness in harmony
I need someone to comfort me



Homeward bound, I wish I was
Homeward bound
Home, were my thoughts escaping
Home, were my music’s playing
Home, were my love lies waiting silently for me
Silently for me
