Lyrics

When I think of home, I think of a place
Where there's love overflowing
I wish I were home
I wish I was back there
With the things I've been knowin'
Wind that makes the tall grass bend into leaning
Suddenly the snowflakes that fall have a meaning
Sprinkling the scene
Makes it all clean

Maybe there's a chance for me to go back
Now that I have some direction
It would sure be nice to back home
Where there's love and affection
And just maybe I can convince time to slow up
Giving me enough time in my life to grow up
Time be my friend
Let me start again

Suddenly my world's gone and changed its face
But I still know where I'm going
I have had my mind spun around in space
And yet I've watched it growing
If you're listening God, please don't make it hard to know
If we should believe the things that we see
Tell us should we run away, should we try and stay?
Or is it better just to let things be?

Living here in this brand new world might be a fantasy
But it's taught me to love
So it's real to me
And I've learned that we must look inside our hearts to find
A world full of love like yours and mine
Like home

When I think of home, I think of a place
Where there's love overflowin’
I wish I was home
I wish I was back
With the things I've been knowin'
Wind that makes the tall grass bend into leaning
Suddenly the snowflakes that fall have a meaning
Sprinkling the scene
Makes it all clean

Suddenly my world's gone and changed its face
But I still know where I'm goin’
I have had my mind spun around in space
And yet I've watched it growin’
And if you're listenin’ God, please don't make it hard to know
If we should believe the things that we see
Tell us should we run away, should we try and stay?
Or is it better just to let things be?

Living here in this brand new world might be a fantasy
But it's taught me to love
So it's real, real, to me
And I've learned that we must look inside our hearts to find
A world full of love like yours, like mine
Like home

When I think of home
I think of a place where there's
Love overflowing
I wish I was home
I wish I was back there
With the things I've been knowing.

Wind that makes the tall trees bend into leaning,
Suddenly the snowflakes that fall
Have a meaning.
Sprinling the scene, makes it all clean.

Maybe there's a chance
For me to go back
Now that I have some direction
It sure would be nice to be back home
Where there's love and affection.
And just maybe I can convince time
To slow up.
Giving me enough time in my life to grow up
Time, be my friend, let me start again

Suddenly my world is gone
And changed its face,
But I still know where I'm going;
I have had my mind spun around
In space
And yet I've watched it growing.

Oh, I know you're listening God
Please don't make it hard
to know if we should believe
The things I see
Tell me, should I run away
Should I try and stay
Or would it be better
Just to let things be?

Living here in this brand-new world
Might be a fantasy;
But it taught me to love,
So it's real, real, real to me

And I've learned that we must look
Inside our hearts to find
A world full of love
Like yours, like mine
Like home
