COVEY – Homebound

By Azlyrics

Chorus:
I’ll head homebound and split in two
If home is where the heart lays, then where is mine?
I’ll start over and make it on my own
‘Cause home is scattered everywhere
and everyone’s losing touch.

It’s been a few years since I was back
I’m not too sure when I was there last
and I’d love to say that I missed it
But truth be told I don’t
Maybe I should just move to the West Coast,
I’ve been out there a few times now
I don’t love it
Or I can move backwards across the Atlantic
Live a short life, live erratic

Chorus:
I’ll head homebound and split in two, eh
If home is where the heart lays, then where is mine?
I’ll start over and make it on my own
‘Cause home is scattered everywhere
and everyone’s losing touch.

Part of me wants to stay
Slowly rot away in the sunlight
Let the dirt replace me day by day
I won’t fight at all
Or maybe I could just move every week or two
Board a freight train
Take it easy
In the slow lane
Get some tattoos
From a crust punk
I befriended some night when we got drunk

Chorus:
I’ll head homebound and split in two, eh
If home is where the heart lays, then where is mine?
I’ll start over and make it on my own
‘Cause home is scattered everywhere
and everyone’s losing touch.

And it’s only getting easier
As I spend my days alone
And right now, I’m feeling safe
But it’s scaring me to death
I don’t want to lose my friends and family that I still have left
They’ll slowly watch me slip away.

[Drop]

I don’t care now, I’ll drive somewhere
In an old car on its last leg
As the fire ball will consume me
It will burn off all my nerve ends
(x3)

I’ll be happy
With no feeling
No more bad thoughts
For no reason.
(x2)
