When I'm half way home

When I’m half way home

The distant voices fade away

The stars have said goodnight

Closing their eyes while I’m awake

Wishing I could stay

And never want for more

Than how I feel

With you tonight

But now I’m caught on the edge

Of all my memories and regrets

For life that’s used up

What I could have done

To change it some way

When I’m half way home

To quiet rooms and your fire light

So far from the cold

With all the love I’ve known

It’s here that I would stay

But then somehow

I’m tumbling down so fast

Toward the pull of earth again

And the road stretched out ahead

When I’m half way home
