​Homesick

This song is by Soul Asylum and appears on the album Grave Dancer's Union (1992) and on the album Runaway Train (2001).

(Music and Lyrics: Dave Pirner)


I want to live with you
In the fifth demension
In a dream I've never had
'Cause I just can't live like this
In a world like this
I just want a kiss goodbye

We are not of this world
And there's a place for us
Stuck inside this fleeting moment
Tucked away where no one owns it
Wrapped up in a haste,
And by mistake got thown away

And oh, I am so homesick
But it ain't that bad
'Cause I'm homesick for the home I've never had

I know I sometimes get annoyed
I know just where I'm at
This is my song of joy
And now I know there are no secret tricks
No correct politics
Just liars and lunatics

And we are not of this world
And there's a place for us
Stuck inside this fleeting moment
Tucked away where no one owns it
Wrapped up in a haste,
And by mistake got thown away

And oh, I am so homesick
But it ain't that bad
'Cause I'm homesick for the home I've never had

And though I would not take it personally
It's just the child in me
I never really knew how much I had

And woe is me, I am so homesick
But it ain't that bad
'Cause I'm homesick for the home I never had
