Vienna Teng - Homecoming Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • it's desert ice outside but this diner has thawed my ears
  • hot coffee in a clean white mug and a smile when the waitress hears
  • that I was born in North Carolina
  • not an hour from her home town
  • and we used to play the same pizza parlor pinball
  • and there's a glance in time suspended as I wonder how it is
  • we've been swept up just by circumstance to where the coyote lives
  • where my days are strips of highway
  • and she's wiping tables down
  • holding on and still waiting for that windfall
  • but I've come home
  • even though I've never had so far to go
  • I've come home
  • I pay the check and leave the change from a crumpled ten-dollar bill
  • head across the street where VACANCY is burning in neon still
  • well the night eats up my body heat
  • and there's no sign of another
  • and I find myself slipping down into that black
  • but things are good I've got a lot of followers of my faith
  • I've got a whole congregation living in my head these days
  • and I'm preaching from the pulpit
  • to cries of “Amen brother”
  • closing my eyes to feel the warmth come back
  • and I've come home
  • even though I swear I've never been so alone
  • I've come home
  • I just want to be living as I'm dying
  • just like everybody here
  • just want to know my little flicker of time is worthwhile
  • and I don't know where I'm driving to
  • but I know I'm getting old
  • and there's a blessing in every moment every mile
  • thin white terry bars of soap and a couple little plastic cups
  • old Gideons Bible in the nightstand drawer saying “Go on open up”
  • well I'll kneel down on the carpet here
  • though I never was sure of God
  • think tonight I'll give Him the benefit of the doubt
  • I switch off the lights and imagine that waitress outlined in the bed
  • her hair falling all around me
  • I smile and shake my head
  • well we all write our own endings
  • and we all have our own scars
  • but tonight I think I see what it's all about
  • because I've come home
  • I've come home
