Part I: Tonight, Today

from Homecoming by The Ragged Flags



When I wake in the morning time
You’re the first thought in my head
In the grey of the creeping light
On your bare side of the bed
Shuffle out in the quiet town, now we
Await the new day
Everyone how they held their breath,
While it, it all blew away

Away, away, my love left home today
Today, today

In the bloom of the youth we shared
We were so sure of our marks
Confident in the path we’d walk, like your
Bedroom in the dark

You and I we know better now, we have
Travelled far and wide
All the years, all the scars we earned,
You could sum up with a sigh

A sigh, a sigh, my love left home tonight
Tonight, tonight

I am older than I had dreamed, I am
Unsure what to say
All the lessons I had to learn, well you
You taught me today

Tonight, today, my love has gone away
Away, away
