Coming Home Lyrics

by Roy Orbison

It's a long and lonely highway
When you're traveling all alone
I was on my way to nowhere
But now I'm coming home, I'm coming home

I've been running through the fire
I've been running for so long
If I took it any higher
Baby, I would be still be gone

But now I'm coming home, coming home, I'm coming home
Coming home, coming home, I'm coming home

Well, my home was really never
On a far and distant shore
If I stayed away forever
I could never miss you more

And so I'm coming home, coming home, I'm coming home
Coming home, coming home, I'm coming home

I think of all these years gone by
Never even wondered why, I never touched the ground
All the time that's come and gone
All the nights I've been alone and now I'm homeward bound

I heard the thunder over Canaan
And I've heard the angels cry
And their voices came revealing
As you live, so will you die

I'm coming home, coming home, I'm coming home
I'm coming home, coming home, I'm coming home

Coming home, coming home, I'm coming home
I'm coming home
I'm coming home, coming home, coming home
