Homesick - Lyrics by Soul Asylum


Lyrics

I want to live with you in the fifth dimension
In a dream i've never had
Cause i just can't live like this in a world like this
I just want a kiss goodbye

And we are not of this world
And there's a place for us
Stuck inside this fleeting moment
Tucked away where no one own it
Wrapped up in a haste and by mistake got thrown away

And oh, i am so homesick
But it ain't that bad
Cause i'm homesick for the home i've never had

And though i sometimes get annoyed i know just where i'm at
This is my song of joy
And now i know there are no secret trick, no correct politics
Just liars and lunatics

And we are not of this world
And there's a place for us
Stuck inside this fleeting moment
Tucked away where no one own it
Wrapped up in a haste and by mistake got thrown away

And oh, i am so homesick
But it ain't that bad
Cause i'm homesick for the home i've never had

And though i would not take it personally, it's just the child in me
I never really knew how much i had

Woe is me, i am so homesick
But it ain't that bad
Cause i'm homesick for the home i've never had
