lyrics

If I told you that I'm broken
Would you let me go astray?
Just a falling star as compass
That soon just fades away
Here I stand bewildered
I am baffled and amazed
By what's in arm's reach
Like a cracked mirror
Is doomed to break

One too many roads was taken
Far too few that led me home
Oh it's wanderlust that made me wish
I'd rest my aching bones
I am scorned in my hometown
I'm a stranger where I go

It's no wonder I'm in pieces
I'm a leper in disgiuse
Being spat on and abused
Left here begging from the skies
Tried to tell you that I'm sorry
But you don't pick up the phone
So I picked up all the pieces
Now I've gone

One too many roads was taken
Far too few that led me home
Oh it's wanderlust that made me wish
I'd rest my aching bones
I am scorned in my hometown
I'm a stranger where I go

Here I stumble broken down
A drunken shipless captain
A lowly king without his crown
on the gallows
Seasons change around me
in these old towns that I roam
And these cobble stones
Will never lead me home
