Home (Is Not What I've Left Behind)



Morning waiting to embark holding hard against the dark
In the company of ghosts from pillar I have gone to post
I’ve travelled here to China’s coast without the one I love the most

From the window of the train Manitoba’s endless plains
Corn is moving in the breeze Scotland’s nearer by degrees
Children hanging round my knees know nothing of these silent pleas

Home is not what I’ve left behind
And home is not what lies ahead
Home is the peace I’ll find
When I’m with you again.

Home is not what I’ve left behind
And home is not what lies ahead
Home is being with you again
Home is being with you again

The end of yet another day the mid-Atlantic’s cold and grey
A few more days and then we’ll be on that train to Waverley
There’s faces there I long to see but not the one that waits for me.

Home is not what I’ve left behind
And home is not what lies ahead
Home is the peace I’ll find
When I’m with you again.

Home is not what I’ve left behind
And home is not what lies ahead
Home is being with you

I know you’re waiting for me.
I know you’re waiting for me.
Yes, you're waiting for me.

Home is not what I’ve left behind
Home is not what lies ahead
Home is the peace I’ll find
When I’m with you again.

Home is not what I’ve left behind
And home is not what lies ahead
Home is being with you again
Home is being with you again

Home is being with you again
