Home Again

Album: The Diving Board (2013)
  • I'm counting on a memory to get me out of here
    I'm waiting for the fog around this spooky little town to clear
    All this time I spent being someone else's friend
    Just one more time, for old time's sake I'd like to go back home again
    The world had seven wonders once upon a time

    It's sure enough the favored nations aided their decline
    And all around me I've seen times like it was back when
    But like back then, I'd say a men if I could get back home again

    If I could go back home, if I could go back home
    If I'd never left, I'd never have known
    We all dream of leaving, but wind up in the end
    Spending all our time trying to get back home again

    Could have been a jailbreak and a spotlight hitting me
    Or was I just some nightclub singer, back in nineteen sixty three
    In the old part of Valencia, on the coast of Spain
    Never tiring once of hearing songs about going home again

    If I could go back home, if I could go back home
    If I'd never left, I'd never have known
    We all dream of leaving, but wind up in the end
    Spending all our time trying to get back home again

    If I could go back home,
    If I'd never left, I'd never have known
    We all dream of leaving, but wind up in the end
    Spending all our time trying to get back home again Writer/s: BERNIE TAUPIN, ELTON JOHN
