(Paul Simon)


I'm sittin' in the railway station,
Got a ticket for my destination, Mmmm
On a tour of one night stands,
My suitcase and guitar in hand and
Every stop is neatly planned
For a poet and a one-man band.

Homeward bound, I wish I was
Homeward bound
Home, where my thought's escaping
Home, where my music's playing
Home, where my love lies waiting silently for me

Every day's an endless stream
Of cigarettes and magazines, Mmmm
And each town looks the same to me
The movies and the factories
And every stranger's face I see
Reminds me that I long to be


Tonight I'll sing my songs again
I'll play the game and pretend, Mmmm
But all my words come back to me
In shades of mediocrity
Like emptiness in harmony
I need someone to comfort me.
