lyrics

ROADS HOME

A brother takes off for the east
The other for the west
Two roads from the same home
A journey and a test

How many miles, how many nights
How many months and years
To find yourself or to lose yourself
Amongst your thoughts and fears

Get back
My home
So many roads
Get back
My home
Push me I’m a rolling stone

Brother one was a strong man
He was confident and brave
Took off quick on a jet black horse
Keen his time to save

No stranger did he speak to
No trouble did he find
Til he reached the east coast
But he found no piece of mind

Get back
My home
So many roads
Get back
My home
Push me I’m a rolling stone

Brother two was a dreamer
Carefree and aloof
Travelled slow journey long
Took in all he could

Stopped to talk and gave his heart
He was generous and kind
Never made the west coast
But he didn’t seem to mind

Get back
My home
So many roads
Get back
My home
Push me I’m a rolling stone
