lyrics

If home is where you lay your head
Then I should go to sleep;
But the bright sun crawls in the fresh of morning,
It tugs at my sleeve.

And tell me where would I be
If I should lie at the bottom of the sea?
Would you lie with me
And carve your name?


If home is where you lead your friends
Then I should follow you;
But the road is long and stones and weeds,
They bite at my feet.

So tell me where would I be
If we should walk to the bottom of the sea?
Will you walk with me
And carve your name down deep?


It’s not a building – that’s only brick and stone.
I never fought in any war,
I never fell to arms in a trench at Somme,
I never sang the soldier’s song;
But they made their bed in the dirt.
Hold me, baby. Maybe then we’ll find our home.


If home is where you lay your head
Then I should go to sleep.
But the bright sun crawls in the fresh of morning,
It tugs at my sleeve.


It’s not a building – that’s only brick and stone.
I never fought in any war,
I never fell to arms in a trench at Somme,
I never sang the soldier’s song;
But they lay their heads in the sand.
Hold me, baby. Maybe then we’ll find our home.

Lay me bare, where would I go?
