Home Again

Album: Fires At Midnight (2001)
  • I've been many places
    I've travelled 'round the world
    Always on the search for something new
    But what does it matter
    When all the roads I've crossed
    Always seem to lead back to you

    Old familiar faces
    Everyone you meet
    Following the ways of the land
    Cobblestones and lanterns
    Lining every street
    Calling me to come home again

    Dancing in the moonlight
    Singing in the rain
    Oh, it's good to be back home again
    Laughing in the sunlight
    Running down the lane
    Oh, it's good to be back home again

    When you play with fire
    Sometimes you get burned
    It happens when you take a chance or two
    But time is never wasted
    When you've lived and learned
    And in time it all comes back to you

    Old familiar faces
    Everyone you meet
    Following the ways of the land
    Cobblestones and lanterns
    Lining every street
    Calling me to come home again

    Dancing in the moonlight
    Singing in the rain
    Oh, it's good to be back home again
    Laughing in the sunlight
    Running down the lane
    Oh, it's good to be back home again

    Oh, it's good to be back home again
    And when I got weary
    I'd sit a while and rest
    Memories invading my mind
    All the things I'd treasured
    The ones I'd loved the best
    Were the things that I'd left behind

    Old familiar faces
    Everyone you meet
    Following the ways of the land
    Cobblestones and lanterns
    Lining every street
    Calling me to come home again

    Dancing in the moonlight
    Singing in the rain
    Oh, it's good to be back home again
    Laughing in the sunlight
    Running down the lane
    Oh, it's good to be back home again

    Oh, it's good to be back home again
    Oh, it's good to be back home again
    Dancing in the moonlight
    Singing in the rain
    Oh, it's good to be back home again
    Laughing in the sunlight
    Running down the lane
    Oh, it's good to be back home again
    Dancing in the moonlight
    Singing in the rain
    Oh, it's good to be back home again Writer/s: DANNY ELFMAN
