  • I miss calling some place home
    I miss thinking I could know
    Where I would spend my final days
    Or plant a seed and watch it grow
    I don’t like waking up alone
    Don’t like cooking meals for one
    I miss the chaos and the noise
    The family work that’s never done

    Now in dreams I swim with the transient whales
    All we have is each other and the songs we share
    The songs we share

    We are never standing still
    The Earth is spinning round the Sun
    The Sun is swinging through the heavens
    And time is always pushing on
    But this body begs for comfort
    And it groans with every change
    Well it hopes it will not suffer
    Prays in vain it will not age

    And in dreams I swim with the transient whales
    All we have is each other and the songs we share
    The songs we share

    I love jokes that last for years
    And having people dropping by
    I liked being at the center
    Of a place that felt alive
    Now my home is in the ocean
    Where my song can travel free
    Carried softly by the water
    To wherever you may be

    Now in dreams I swim with the transient whales
    All we have is each other and the songs we share
    The songs we share Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
