Walking Back

Play

Tonights the night
I swore I'd return with ecstasy
With fortune and fame
'Cuz I'd made myself a name
And they'd be so proud of me
Tonight they're waiting at the airport
I'm not on the plane

'Cuz I'm walking back
Empty hearted
To the place
Where it all started
Never been so long alone
I wanna go home

Could it be
My baby still has faith in me
Could it be true
After all she's been through
She's still waiting for me
For since I've gone I haven't heard
One encouraging word

'Cuz I'm walking back
Empty hearted
To the place
Where it all started
Never been so long alone
I wanna go home

Ohhh I've never been so long alone
I wanna go home

No I never never been so long alone
I wanna go home

No I never never been so long alone
