Woke up in the morning staggered out of bed
Thought about getting back again but went downstairs instead
Read the daily paper have to know the truth
Slammed the door as I ran outside, looked at my watch and cried


Gotta get to work on time

Then the sky turned a deeper blue
Not a cloud as the sun shone through
But all around rain kept falling to the grounds
The wind was blowing but the trees didn't make a sound
Just another alien afternoon
Just another alien afternoon

Time that I was leaving while there's still a chance
Before I start believing in what I see or hear
Nothing here to keep me, nothing anywhere
Gotta get out, pack my bags before I go insane

Gotta get away in time
Gotta get away in time

Then the sky turned from blue to green
Took on colors I have never seen
Then a sound started ringing in my ears
I heard voices but in truth there's nobody there
Just another alien afternoon
Just another alien afternoon

To be there back where I belong
To feel again the wind just upon my face
To see again all that I took for granted
All that I left and everything I knew

We are home, we are your home
Not another alien afternoon
We are home
We are home, we are your home

Never want to go wanderin'
Never leaving my world behind
There was never a reason
To leave my heart and my home behind
Where I was born is where I should be now
I would never be lonely
I would never be sad again

I wanted to go anywhere
I wanted to see how strange it all could be
Nothing would ever take me away again
Never more to go wanderin'
Never leaving my world behind
No, no, no, no

Never more to go wanderin'
Nothing will ever take me away again
Away again
No, no, no, no
Never more to go wanderin' again
Nothing would ever take me away again
