carry me back lyrics – andy summers

creep in through my window
dance upon the wall
come in here beside me
climb into my soul
take me to the water,
down into the cool
everlasting memory
everlasting pool

aching in the darkness
burning in the sun
calling from the water
this life has just begun
strength of blood and muscle
life of wood and bone
searching for a fire
searching for a home…
home… home… home…

crouching in the darkness
hiding in the stone
trembling in the darkness

this man is not alone
hit me by the memory
hurt me to the bone
make my fists with starlight
carry me back home…
home…

(home.)
(home.) ay… yah
(home.) ay… yah
ay… yah
ay… yah
ay… yah
ay… yah (ay-yah, ay-yah, we say “ay-yah”, ay-yah)
ay… yah (ay-yah, ay-yah, we say “ay-yah”, ay-yah)
ay… yah (ay-yah, ay-yah, we say “ay-yah”, ay-yah)
ay… yah (ay-yah, ay-yah, we say “ay-yah”, ay-yah)
hear them say ay-yah… (ay-yah, ay-yah, we say “ay-yah”, ay-yah)
hear them say ay-yah… (ay-yah, ay-yah, we say “ay-yah”, ay-yah)
