Lyrics

She slid out of bed, trying not to wake him. 

His eyes were closed. He wasn't sleeping. 
He just played along. Then he and the clock 
listened for the lock and her footsteps fading. 

And I know what she's feelin' 
Know what she's thinkin' 
Know what she's doin' 
Going off alone. 
Woh, oh. 
Trying to find Home. 
Find Home.

Grand Central Flag

 

The subway doors opened 
and he moved forward. 
Up the stairs 
to the trains 
and all that light. 

Under the great big flag 
he made up his mind 
left his stuff behind 
and started walking. 

And I know what 
he's feelin' 
Know what he's thinkin' 
Know what he's doin' 
Going off alone. 
Woh, oh. 
Trying to find Home. 
Find Home. 

I work these sidewalks. 
Singing the Old Songs. 
Watching the wounded 
follow their heartbeats 
as they pass on by. 

I know what you're feelin' 
Know what you're thinkin' 
Know what you're doin' 
Going off. 

Hey, I know what you're feelin' 
Know what you're thinkin' 
Know what you're doin' 
Going off alone. 
Woh, oh. 
Trying to find Home. 
Find Home. 

Home.
