heart, home lyrics – continental drifters

written by robert maché
main voice: vicki
released on ‘vermilion’ (1999)

this heart needs a home
to keep it from stumbling
out in the street
to keep it from suffering
a night without sleep
to keep it from dying.

just a home with a room
to keep out the lightening
when it’s thundering down
and the words grab the anger
and come dancing around
this shattered foundation.

when i close my eyes
i dream through the night
i dream i’m an angel just learning to fly
brought up by the winds
and i’m taught by the clouds
when i open my eyes
i’m still on the ground.

this heart needs a home.

h*ll, when i close my eyes
i dream through the night
i dream i’m an angel just learning to fly
brought up by the winds
and i’m taught by the clouds
when i open my eyes
i’m still on the ground.

this heart needs a home
to keep it from stumbling
out in the street
to keep it from suffering
a night without sleeping
to keep it from dying.

this heart needs a home
this home needs a heart
this heart needs a home
a home with some heart.
