Home Is Where the Heart Is

Climbing up on Solsbury Hill
I could see the city light
Wind was blowing, time stood still
Eagle flew out of the night
He was something to observe
Came in close, I heard a voice
Standing, stretching every nerve
Had to listen, had no choice
I did not believe the information
I just had to trust the imagination

          My heart going boom, boom, boom
          "Son", he said, "grab your things, I've come to take you home"

Keep in silence I resigned
My friends would think I was a nut
Turning water into wine
Open doors would soon be shut
So I went from day to day
Though my life was in a rut
'Til I thought of what I'd say
Which connection I should cut
I was feeling part of the scenery
I walked right out of the machinery

          My heart going boom, boom, boom
          "Son", he said, "grab your things, I've come to take you home"

When illusion spin her net
I'm never where I want to be
Liberty she pirouette
When I think that I am free
Watched by empty silhouettes
Who close their eyes but still can see
No one taught them etiquette
I will show another me
Today I don't need a replacement
I'll show them what the smile on my face meant

          My heart going boom, boom, boom
          "Son", he said, "grab your things, I've come to take you home"

          "Hey", "Hey", "Hey", "Hey", "Hey", "Hey", "Hey", “I’ll soon be home”

Amazing Lines! Cheers

It's beautiful, sometimes we just look at how we miss home when we're far away from it.

I love Peter Gabriel, especially his early days in Genesis.
Your post reminded me of this song from Ramón Mirabet, a Barcelona singer. The song's title is the same as the post.

I can see how you were reminded - the influence is notable. 👍
