They say there's wreckage washing up
All along the coast
No one seems to know too much
Or who got hit the most

Nothing has been spoken
There's not a lot to see
But something has been broken
That's how it feels to me

We had a harmony
I never meant to spoil
Now it's lying in the water
Like a slick of oil

The tide is running out to sea
Under a darkening sky
The night is falling down on me
And I'm thinking that I should

Head on home
(Head on home)
Been gone too long
(Gone too long)
Leave my roaming

Little wild kitten out hunting
To see what he can get
You're in a big city now
That won't stop growing yet

The sun is going down smoking
A flaming testament
Something has been broken
And it feels permanent

Little seabird flying
He knows where he wants to go
Guess I ought to pack my stuff
And do the thing I know

I turn around and head on back
Along the old sea wall
I felt something give and crack
And now I'm sorry that's all

Head on home
(Head on home)
Been gone too long
(Gone too long)
Leave my roaming
