DT Lyrics:




Subject: Can we go home now?
From: GUEST,Michael in Swansea
Date: 25 Aug 00 - 04:33 AM

Yesterday evening I had a lift home with a neighbour and over the radio came the most muchly wondrous haunting song, I think it was called "Can we go home now" I hadn't heard it before. Is it new? A female singer, didn't catch the name, but I believe the man on the radio said she was Canadian.
Before I pester the radio station for info I thought I'd give you 'catters the chance to come up with the goods.
Any ideas anyone, pleeeeeeease?
Diolch
Michael

Brendy, from what I remember it certainly sounds like it. You're magic! May you always walk in sunshine.
What's the rest of the album like? Doesn't really matter, it's an hour and a half to lunchtime, see if it's in town anywhere.
Thanks muchly LOL
Michael

I hadn't heard of it at all, Michael, before you asked. After checking the DT, I just did a search, and it was about 8 or 9 pages 'in' (if you know what I mean). I know of The Roches, alright. But that was just coincidence.

Hope it's the right one.

Brendy, I'd not heard of The Roches before, they seem to have been around for sometime, but if that one track is typical of them then I've certainly been missing out.
OK it's lunchtime and raining and I'm coatless so I don't think I shall venture into town in search of CD, instead I shall peruse the Mudcat record shop and see if it's there.
Once again thanks,
M

Yo.

If not, you can order it here, or here. These are American sites, I would imagine, but I'm sure if you ask your local record shop, they'd order it for you.

All the best.

Oh, y'all, check it out. I've got everything they ever cut. Started today reading about the Everlys and here I am again: there's something about siblings locking onto a chord that's just hair-raisingly joyful. And so sad, sometimes.

I copied these lyrics from The Roches' web site. (It's a good thing I found them; I would not have been able to distinguish "sea 'n' stars" from "seein' stars", which makes a kind of sense to me.) But I added the repeated lines "can we go home now" at the end, to correspond with what I hear in the recording.


CAN WE GO HOME NOW
As sung by The Roches on "Can We Go Home Now" (1995)

woke up alone
in a strange bed
lookin' around
shaking my head
pulled my boots on
went downstairs
she was sitting
in one of the chairs

can we go home now
was what I said
she looked at me
and said we
are home

matter with you
I nearly forgot
the difference between
what is and what's not
plenty of sky
castles of sand
sea 'n' stars
busted my hand

can we go home now
I've had enough
she looked at me
and said tough
luck
suck

watchin' TV
the whole day through
bough bending low
with nothin' to do
sun gone down
the railroad track
breathing a cry
when she comes back

can we go home now
I wanna go home
she looked away
and said please
stay

can we go home now
can we go home now
can we go home now
can we go home now
can we go home now
can we go home now
can we go home now
can we go home now [fade]
