Places I've Been

(Lyrics from an old song.)


Sitting here all alone

Wondering where the time has gone

I’m waiting, for someone

To take me away...


Home to the waving fields

The places I’ve been;

Too numerous to count

In my dreams.


The shadows are getting longer

As the yellow face sinks under the sea.

The world darkens

And I want to go...


Home to the waving fields

The places I’ve been;

Too numerous to count

In my dreams.


Lonely before I never have been

People, always people all around me,

When all I really want is for you to take me...


Home to the waving fields

The places I’ve been;

Too numerous to count

In my dreams.

  1. You should post the soundtrack for this on the blog. It is a beautiful song you wrote...haunting as you longed for home in many ways.

  2. It serves the soul to read the words through cold and dark, as well as to listen to the haunting melody while waiting to go home.
