I'm counting on a memory to get me out of here
I'm waiting for the fog around this spooky little town to clear.
All this time I spent being someone else's friend
Just one more time, for old time sake I'd like to go back home again!
The world had seven wonders once upon a time
It's sure enough the favorite nations aided their decline
And all around me I've seen times like it was back when
But like back then, I'd say, man, if I can go back home again!

Chorus:
If I could go back home, if I could go back home
If I'd never left, I'd never have known!
We all dream of leaving, but wind up in the end
Spending all our time trying to get back home again!

Could have been a jail break and a spot light hitting me
Or was that just some night club singer, back in 1963.
In the old part of Valencia, on the coast of Spain
Never tiring once of hearing songs about going home again!

Chorus: (x2)
If I could go back home, if I could go back home
If I'd never left, I'd never have known
We all dream of leaving, but wind up in the end
Spending all our time trying to get back home again!
