I'm Coming Home to Stay

by Thomas K. Hunt

Life took hold and kept me away from home
and now I’ll be home and never need to roam
Well let me tell you how it is my friend

There are thoughts that have escaped my mind
It seems more are disappearing as I’m running out of time
I think back and yes they’re gone and it doesn’t feel like it’s been that long

My mind escapes me and I play along with the game
I remember your face but I’m short on your name
Oh yes now I remember and I smiled as I teared
How have you been my friend these many long years

Familiar faces and childhood places all this will be coming to me
It’s been too many years and too many tears not to be where I’m suppose to be
Nothing but friends and family and new love along the way
I’ll be home and I’ll never be alone with a beautiful smile
smiling at me everyday

I’ve been dreaming of this day since that first night away
and now my dream will become a reality
My life will now be complete
I'll be back on the streets where I became me

The old days are gone but never forgotten
Laughter and sorrows have filled my days
I’ll be home for good and that’s for certain
It took just one smile to send me on my way

I’ll be back for the duration where you’ll see my smiling face
I've often wondered if you still live at the same place
No it’s not just a vacation I'll be there everyday
It may take a year or two but I'm coming home to stay

A shout out to everyone that brought me here today
I’ll meet you anytime you want on the bridge over French Creek Bay
