I’ve done my rhyme paid the dice
Twisted cliches will suffice
But the music’s wrong
And I’m a strange song
That can’t go home
Harmony’s where my heart is
The happy ending
But chords are calling
And I’m flying and falling
Away from
Being alone
The sweetest tone of
The final note
Where I float
Almost home
Elusive muse pay your dues
To a song in discord
You’re avoiding me
Squandering freedom
When I just wanna go home
Locked out by black keys
Locked in by white
Never back to the front door
Never fronted the back
Always out of sight of
Being alone
The sweetest tone of
The final note
Where I float
Almost home
One day I’ll come right out
And end the song how I want to
But for now I’ll dream on
Cos I long for
Being alone
The sweetest tone of
The final note
Where I float
Almost home
