i’ve been away in the land that my parents were born in
where gunshots and rooster calls announce the arrival of morning
i’m looking over the wing
which is over the clouds
which are over the sky
which is over the ground where you’re waiting
are you still waiting for me?

i’m coming home
i’m coming home
i’ve been away and i’ve been alone
but i’m coming home

i went away and i never answered your question
coy and mysterious, i danced at the edge of suggestion
i know i’ve pushed and i’ve pulled
till you were ready to break
but i’m tired of games
i’m ready to take a chance
do you still want to take a chance on me?

i’m coming home
i’m coming home
i’ve been away and i’ve been alone
but i’m coming home

tell me it’s not too late

i’m coming home
i’m coming home
i’ve been away and i’ve been alone
but i’m coming home
