Home (demo)

This is one of two songs I wrote as a Portfolio piece as a reflection of the Summer Session. Each of the two songs talks about man’s relationship to nature. The first song, “Home” is a positive portrayal of a young person embarking out into the world. Despite the chorus saying “I will find my way home again”, really the song points to (especially in the last verse) the idea that our home is not really the city. The line “Just don’t wait up for me” points to that, in that our protagonist will not be returning to the city.

The second song, “Signs”, will follow shortly.

Here are the lyrics for Home:

I will climb over the mountains
Through the fields and foothills
Through carpets the of flowers turning
Churning waters, waters still
Every plan and every blueprint
I will throw it to the wind
Where the tracks take me I will follow and then
I will find my way home again

And I will see what I will see (x3)
Just don’t wait up for me.

The mountains frozen with their whitecaps
Standing silent over sea
I have left my light-filled city
Now the stars are shining free
Vision will swallow horizon
Smell will take in all the air
I will tread the paths of ancient men and then
I will find my way home again

And I will see what I will see (x3)
Just don’t wait up for me.

My eyes are filled with awestruck wonder
At a wild that is so calm
And I know these mountains will live on
After all I know is gone
Every plan and every blueprint
Built my city by the sea
Though it houses all the towers of my friends
Every city will fall in the end.

Though I will see what I will see (x3)
Just don’t wait up for me.
