Homecoming

This song is by It's Immaterial and appears on the album Song (1990).

Looking down from the night plane
On rail yards and suburbs
Manchester way, I'm coming home
The same things always come true
Like the summer rain
And the same painted houses calls
They seem to know your name

And I say
I know the world will never change
And everything remains the same
Through the eyes of a small town boy

Ringway airport
The planes landing
The baggage carousel
And the same taxi driver waits
Waits to drive me home

And I say
I know the world will never change
And everything remains the same
Through the eyes of a small town boy
If you can
Please tell why it's so
Why the hometown rain
Can wash our cares away

High above the clouds
The coalfields and the foundries
When you're looking down
The shadows on the land
It's all here

And I say
I know the world will never change
And everything remains the same
Through the eyes of a small town boy
If you can
Please tell why it's so
Why the hometown rain
Can wash our cares away

The flags are flying to welcome home
The small town boy who made the noise
Coast to coast and over mountains
The neon lights and factories shouting
When you're high above the praising steeples
Above one million people
