lyrics

7. Home by Now

We didn't mean to run away to sea, only to seek
our own place and identity, but the currents are
strong, the tide and the undertow, and lost in the
waves, and the deep blue...

No ghost from the grave needs sent to tell us this -
in over our heads, we're in one hell of a fix. Staring
at screens for retail therapy and for the homes of our
dreams, with no hint of irony

But if you lived in your heart you'd be home by now
If you knew what it wanted, it could be in your hands
All this flailing and fighting it leads nowhere
If you lived in your heart you'd be home by now

The call of the sea, harsh and inviting -
the foam and the spray, the farthest horizon.
Ah but sail with me for an inland ocean -
your body's the key, the seat of emotion

And if you lived in your heart you'd be home by now
If you knew what it wanted, it could be in your hands
All this flailing and fighting it leads nowhere
If you lived in your heart you'd be home by now.
