Homeward Bound Lyrics

by Ben Kweller

He's waiting at the station
He's not taking any train
He's a kid from Colorado
Counting the raindrops in the drain

He's sleeping in the tunnel
He's now edging for the vent
He's a lonesome river swimmer
Wondering where the river went

Who's gonna carry him down?
Who's gonna carry him down?
One more turn around and he'll be homeward bound
Who's gonna carry him, carry him down?

There's a landlord on the benches
There's a posse on the train
There's an angel up in heaven
Who forgot somebody's name

Who's gonna carry him down?
Who's gonna carry him down?
One more turn around and he'll be homeward bound
Who's gonna carry him, carry him down?

Who's gonna carry him down?
Who's gonna carry him, carry him down?
One more turn around and he'll be homeward bound
Who's gonna carry him, carry him down?

Who's gonna carry him down?
Who's gonna carry him down?
One more turn around and he'll be homeward bound
Who's gonna carry him, carry him down?
