"He who forgets, will be destined to remember..."

Josh Ritter - Homecoming

I feel a change in the weather, I feel a change in me
The days are getting shorter and the birds begin to leave
Even me, yes yes y’all, who’s been so long alone —
I’m headed home, headed home.

The nights are getting colder now and the air is getting crisp
I first tasted the universe on a night like this.
A box of wine, an alibi, and the hunger in her eyes
in a place where the tree of good and evil still resides, still resides.

Homecoming
homecoming homecoming

She said Show me what you’ve got, Baby, I’m not like other girls
just give me your bad self and a place for us to make a stand and I can move the world
Lift the valley from the floor, honey, it’ll turn to the sky
They’ll say that it’s a miracle and you’ll know damn well they’re right, damn well they’re right

Homecoming (hey now)
Homecoming, homecoming (don’t go away now)
Homecoming (hey now)
Homecoming, homecoming (don’t go away now)

(Hey now) The miracle spoke to me she was like a roadside sign:
Do unto others as you would have them do — (don’t go away now)
(hey now) even if in turn they do you wrong
This town right here is my everything
and though I’ve been torn away (don’t go away now)
It had my heart, it has my heart, be still my heart, my heart will stay
My heart will stay (hey now)
my heart will stay
my heart will stay (don’t go away now)
my heart will stay…

Get just a little bit high, get a little tongue-tied
gonna try to find whatever ever made time
That kind of immemorial, that time before the fall
yeah that time before they all really turned the corner
Drive east of Eden till we start to feel the west
we were never far from nowhere, you could see it from the edge of town
Honey, Baby, wonder how it feel now
Somehow I can’t believe that it could feel like before, but…

The air’s getting colder now, the nights are getting crisp
I first tasted the universe on a night like this
An alibi, a box of wine, and the hunger in your eyes
in a place where the tree of good and evil still resides

Homecoming
homecoming, homecoming
homecoming
homecoming (ohhhh) …
homecoming (hey now, don’t go away now)
homecoming homecoming
homecoming…
