No Place Called Home

This song is by The Clarks and appears on the album Someday Maybe (1996).

Momma ran off with a man from town,
Daddy came home, found the note, got drunk and fell down,
Jessie was crying, no tears would be saved,
I couldn't take it so I started pining straight for the grave,
Hitched a ride to the coke mines, from there I could walk,
I could hear grandma saying "When you pray son, you don't need to talk,"
Got a room in a house for about twenty bucks a week,
Two drunks and a whore, a bunch of cats, fuckin' landlord was a freak.

I should've told you that night that we slept in the car,
I would've told you but I never saw us getting this far.

I met a man in a suit, he said he'd give me a job,
I wouldn't have to pay taxes and I wouldn't have to rob,
And man it was easy, all I had to do was drive,
I didn't care what was in the suitcase, it felt good to be alive,
I shied away from salvation, took a liking to sin,
You could put all of my cares on the head of a pin.

I should've told you that night that we slept in the car,
I would've told but I never saw us getting this far.

I know I've been hard on you baby,
Momma should've known that you can't grow up alone,
And we will be together someday maybe,
There's no place called home.

Something was funny, the whole deal kind of strange,
I could hear Momma saying son you're Daddy he'll never change,
I was down in an instant, just a big flash of light,
Undercover lie bleeding, I guess I put up a fight,
You were the first one, said that I could be free,
But I don't want for my baby, what had happened to me.
Give my love to my children, tell them I love them so,
Honey I'm so sorry but I've got to go.

I should've told you that night we made love on the bar,
I would've told you but I never saw us getting this far.

I know I've been hard on you baby,
Momma should've known that you can't grow up alone,
And we will be together someday maybe,
There's no place called home,
No place called home.
