Lyrics

Four A.M. the shuttle’s waiting
she’s been anxious up all night
Finalizing details
getting ready for her flight
Every thing she thinks she needs impossible to pack
She’s filled beyond capacity
and still afraid of what she’ll lack
She’s GOING HOME

One sister in the terminal
there's another in the air
Three lives in restless travel,
each one seeks intensive care
In the ritual of family,
every rule and role perfectly spelled
The innocence of childhood
to which each one is compelled
They’re Going Home

Home is where the heart is
filled with memories so sweet
Home where a family once was
happy and complete
But it’s a bittersweet reunion,
a lesson hard to learn
That her heart will always be there,
but she never can return

I’m standing near the baggage claim unprepared and unrehearsed
With eager eyes I scan and try
but she always sees me first
Suddenly before me
wisdom mixed with sadness in her eyes
Then she smiles and takes my hand,
and we both realize
We’re GOING HOME

GOING HOME
