I'll Always Come Home
Lyrics
I'LL ALWAYS COME HOME @Fred Israel 1997

Even when we lived sirens away
across a great divide down dark alleyways
when telephone lines were our monorails
and monoliths and crosstown traffic
played it's city surf and
outbursts and exclamations honked like
truck horns in the night rolling through tears
two eggs fryin' on love's pavement
changing the foothold at the roots of our fears
(chorus)
somehow I knew the pain by which we grew
would lead me to know myself better.
Even when you lurk in the dark I see a spark
and I'll always come home to you.

Once in a moon I'd want to hide
from the restless distraction of
amusement park rides
to take down my face in some kindred place
confess and confide with no sense of pace
(chorus)
boundaries erased invitation I could taste
Oh I danced with the chance but I
always came home to you.

And when we drank ourselves cloudy
and echoes bounced loudly and proudly
cross an already roudy universe
When you couldn't make up your mind
and I couldn't find time
nothing was spoken in action or verse
(chorus)
When you painted me black
I was blinded by light
with nothing to hold nothing was told
I needed contact so I seized the night
(chorus)
stars a drippin', moon anew
I was hard at work chasing my dreams
but I always came home to you.

Now that you've turned back to your roots
safe from my face and
the gaze of my warm burning truth
I'm left alone holding a full pale of sand
with a magnifying glass
and searchlight in my hand
when I turn my vision in
to see what's hiding there
way down under the thunder in frozen despair
It's been so long since I've greeted myself and
so I come home to revel in the view
(chorus)
And here's to my spirit my soul is my friend.
I swear I'll never abandon you again
I'll always come home.....I'll always come home
