lyrics

Home to Me (by Alfa Garcia. Copyright © 2008. )

Mother came home late
Closed the backyard metal gate
And then walked into the house
Not a word or a sound.

She saved herself a place by the TV
and a plate of her favorite mistakes
and a tall glass of dreams.

Chorus:
Where her daughters all have gone?
She don’t know but she thinks that
One day they’ll come home calloused and bruised
With the world on their fingertips
She is home to me.

All the boys and girls
Years ago in their own world
Now they’re workin’ 9 to 5 and it’s an ordinary life
But I’ve been staring at my feet to take me where I’ve never been
So I can make her proud of me
and she’ll know this wasn’t all for nothing.

Chorus:
Where her daughters all have gone?
She don’t know but she thinks that
One day they’ll come home the depth of the ocean
Standing all by themselves
She is all I need…
She is all I need…

Bridge:
When I look in her eyes: unspoken sacrifice
Through her weary bones she hides inside a smile
and when you tell I am just the same I find I smile the same way.

Mother came home late
Closed the backyard metal gate
Then she walked into the house
Not a word or a sound.

She saved herself a place by the TV
and a plate of her favorite mistakes
and a tall glass of dreams.

Chorus:
Where her daughters all have gone?
No, no she don’t know but she thinks that
One day they’ll come home calloused and bruised
With the world on their fingertips
The world on their fingertips…
The world on their fingertips

She is home to me.
