Coming Home

 

I am fighting rush hour traffic from the airport in this compact rental car

And I am driving to the outskirts where the quite woods and neighborhoods are

As I drive ‘neath leafy canopies something dappled happens to my mind

A trembling sense of hoping for the letting go I’m coming home to find

 

Coming home….

 

I am sold on the virtues and vices of my solo city life

And I am driven by an appetite for complications of my own device

But these tall trees and still rooms speak in tongues that I still understand

My hard edge is worn down like course wood rubbed by loving hands

 

Coming home, coming home…..

 

Home is the place at the very center of your heart

Where you are perfectly content with nothing more than knowing you belong

A sigh of satisfaction on a balmy summer night

A deep reassurance that everything is gonna be alright

 

Coming home, coming home, coming home…….

 

I am fighting rush hour traffic from the airport in this compact rental car

And I am driving to the outskirts where the quite woods and neighborhoods are
