I just landed here in nowhere and it ain’t no surprise
Standin’ in a hardrain ‘n it’s beating in my eyes
‘n I can see this light shining hangin’ on the side of a hill
I started to believe it I’de seen this place before
That oak tree in the shadows that old chair near the door
You can almost hear the laughter hangin’ on the side of that hill
I have this dream still.
I was hell bent on lookin’ for all I could see
The fire was a glowin’ flickerin’ through the trees
All I saw was a whisper of a place I’de like to be
‘n I have this dream in me
But if I’m tossed in this feelin’ thinkin’ like this
There’s something I’de like to know
What kind of reason will take a moment like this
‘n keep it movin’ so slow
If I’ve been livin’ way out of line
by holdin’ my world on a string
You see I have this dream.
I’m facin’ down a back road can’t see me no end
Rollin’ through the darkness like some old homeless wind
And I’m wonderin’ ‘bout my freedom just where have I been
And hometown is no town if you can’t find a friend
Who holds to the ways of your life.
Sometimes we walk to run to the end
No use in asking us why
That light in my eyes has put me dead in my tracks
Does that voice sound familiar with that gun in my back
Where the hell’s johns barber shop did it fall through the cracks
And I had this dream further back
If I’m tossed in this feeling of feeling like this
There’s one thing I have to know
What kind of reason will take a reason like this
And keep it movin so slow.
If I’ve been livin’ way outta line
By holdin’ my world on a string
You se I had this dream
About losing your Hometown.......
