Adam Carroll – Home Again Lyrics

Capo 1
We all move in circles from the day that we begin
We wait around til we run aground before it all comes back again
He was a husband and a father just the same
But when his country went to war he knew they'd draw his name
He told them he was crazy but they would not let him be
They sent him off as a wandering hero lost in an unknown sea
He was fightin until nightfall, waitin for the day
That peace would come back and he could get back home again
Washed upon a new land, feelin like an old man
He wasn't gettin any younger, he wants to get back home again
Twenty years is a long time when you wanna be some place else
I see his name in everyone just like I see myself
Seven years with calypso, immortality for love
And I stared at the constellations wishin for the girl I was dreamin of
Summer times I've stood underneath the beer joint sign
Cause even ol' Odysseus got bored from time to time
Diggin in my billfold, countin out the spare change
Gotta take a Greyhound so I can get back home again
Spent the night with strangers, lookin for my friends
Better keep on lookin til I get back home again
Old times always stay the same and brand new days are strange
But you never lose yourself and all you do is change
All our days are short next to the rings around a tree
But trouble like the Cyclops keeps one great big eye on me
I won't run out of courage and I won't give up the game
Cause everybody's watchin you when nobody is your name
Stuck inside a mouse hole runnin' out of hope
Better keep on diggin til you get back home again
Make it through the worst pains, callin out the Gods' names
They'll stick besides you until you get home again
