GOING HOME AGAIN
Scott Mckenzie


It's nice to have you going home again
Nice to see you leaving this dirty old town
Dropping everything that's been keeping you down
It's nice to have you going home

The road we're gonna travel will be rocky and strange
There will be the time where you feel all alone
But don't believe it, you're not unseen or unknown
It's nice to have you going home

And those of us who travel
We all know your name
And when you come to join us
You see that we're the same
People that you've been looking for
In a corner of your eye
All the ghosts you left
Every time you said goodbye

And it might take us a lifetime
But seconds take days
And days take years
And a lifetime is only a dream
A lifetime is only a dream
A lifetime is only a dream
A dream, a dream

Oh, but it's nice to have you going home again
Nice to see you leaving this dirty old town
Dropping everything that's been keeping you down
It's nice to have you going home
La da da
