about

I wrote this song when I was in my early twenties. The things you believe when you're younger... it's a bit like sneering at myself now, but hey, there you go.

lyrics

Hometown Blues

Ain't it funny how fast time flies
And I'm still not where I want to be
And all the aims I want to reach, they seem so distant
Getting farther away every day

It seems like I'm stuck to this town
I still hang around the same old places
Same old people that I know
And every new day steals a little of this consciousness
That I belong somewhere else

But someday I'm going away from here
Someday I'm gonna get out of here to lose this
Hometown blues

So many years have gone by since I left school
And the careless life I used to lead
And all the old friends that used to have the same ideals
Have gone the other way

“Life needs security, a place to stay and a woman you can trust”
That's what I hear them talking when I meet them on the street
But I see the hunger in there eyes
For the things they never reach

But someday I'm going away from here
Someday I'm gonna get out of here to lose this
Hometown blues

Oh I can't remember
How I got this fever
But I got voices in my head that make me shiver

Oh I can't remember
How I got this fever
But I got voices in my head... make me lose this hometown blues

I can lose this hometown blues
I'm gonna lose this hometown blues
I can lose this hometown blues
