I was listening to the ocean
I saw a face in the sand
But when I picked it, oh
Then it vanished away from my hand

I had a dream I was seven
Climbing my way in a tree
I saw a piece of heaven
Waiting impatient for me, along

And I was running far away
Would I run off the wall someday?
Nobody knows, nobody knows
And I was dancing in the rain
I felt alive and I can't complain

But now take me home
Take me home where I belong
I can't take it anymore

I was painting a picture
The picture was a painting of you and
For a moment I thought you were there
But again, it wasn't true
And all this time I have been lying
Oh, lying in secret to myself
I've been putting sorrow on the forest plains
On my show, da di da

And I was running far away
Would I run off the wall someday?
Nobody knows, nobody knows
And I was dancing in the rain
I felt alive and I can't complain

But now take me home
Take me home where I belong
I got no other place to go
But now take me home
Take me home where I belong
I got no other place to go
But now take me home
Take me home where I belong
I can't take it anymore

But I kept running
For a soft place to fall
And I kept running
For a soft place to fall
And I kept running
For a soft place to fall
But I kept running
For a soft place to fall

And I was running far away
Would I run off the wall someday?

But now take me home
Take me home where I belong
I got no other place to go
But now take me home
Take me home where I belong
I got no other place to go
But now take me home
Home where I belong
No, no, no
Take me home, home where I belong
Oh, oh
Take me home, home where I belong
No, no, no
Take me home, home where I belong
I can't take it anymore
