1.  I’ve travelled a long way, and gathered a heavy load.

It’s only by looking back I see it was the wrong road.

But there’s a feeling I’ve had for years, it never left me somehow.

That the past is always there, it’s just another country now.

If I could go back there, things would feel the same.

I’d throw down my heavy load: the years would fall away.


I’m going back home, where I can smell the sea.

Where the seagulls fly, and where I left me.

‘Gonna go back home, where I can be free,

To a place where I can make sense of my memories.

And where I can stop being what everyone wants me to be.  



2.  ‘Feel I’m watching my life unfold from behind a TV screen,

And all I can do is stare; no one can hear me scream.

I refused to be like everyone else and join their pantomime,

I chose to be an outsider, that was my only crime.

I’m not going to explain or apologise,

My race is almost run, I don’t have much time.



‘Gotta go back home, where I can smell the sea.

Where the seagulls fly, and where I left me.

‘Gonna go back home, where I can set myself free,

To a place where I can make sense of all my memories,

And where I can stop being what everyone wants me to be.
