When I was six years old I broke my leg
I was running from my brother and his friends  Tasted the sweet perfume of the mountain grass I rolled down
I was younger then, take me back to when I

 Found my heart and broke it here
Made friends and lost them through the years 
And I've not seen the roaring fields in so long, I know I've grown 
But I can't wait to go home

I'm on my way
 Driving at ninety down those country lanes  Singing to "Tiny Dancer"
And I miss the way you make me feel, and it's real
When we watched the sunset over the castle on the hill

 Fifteen years old and smoking hand-rolled cigarettes  Running from the law through the backfields and getting drunk with my friends 
Had my first kiss on a Friday night, I don't reckon that I did it right 
But I was younger then, take me back to when

We found weekend jobs, when we got paid
We'd buy cheap spirits and drink them straight 
Me and my friends have not thrown up in so long, oh how we've grown 
But I can't wait to go home

I'm on my way
 Driving at ninety down those country lanes  Singing to "Tiny Dancer"
And I miss the way you make me feel, and it's real
When we watched the sunset over the castle on the hill
We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill

One friend left to sell clothes and
One works down by the coast 
One had two kids but lives alone
One's brother overdosed
One's already on his second wife
One's just barely getting by
But these people raised me
And I can't wait to go home

And I'm on my way, I still remember
 These old country lanes
When we did not know the answers 
And I miss the way you make me feel, it's real
When we watched the sunset over the castle on the hill
We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill
We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill
