jumped out of an airplane just to find the ground
chasing my tail running around
"you'll get it out of your system" what dad said
but its hard to give your parents cred

all they wanted
was to be home

flying through storms eye of the hurricane
finally found his calm beyond hail and rain
she's city girl raised on B movies
didn't think all that wild was so pretty

all they wanted
was to be home

the wind does blow, rattle and shake
pokes holes in alibis uncovers mistakes
one person leaves the other stays
then they think of each other til the end of their days

now I tend my well, plant new corn
find the berries beyond the thorns
fossil records, scars on my shins
all the places since traveled, places I've been

if I turn just so I swear I hear her voice
using different words making a different choice
one person loves the other abides
buckle their seat belts hang on for the ride

all they wanted
was to be home
