Brett Dennen – Home Away From Home Lyrics

[Intro]

[Verse]
Once I was a man with a chisel in my hand
Breaking up the rocks with the sun burning my neck
Then I was the sun throwing down the light of day
Thinking I was hot, but a cloud got in my face
So I became a cloud casting shadows, dark and gray
‘Til a gust of wind came and blew my ass away
Then I was a wind, but I couldn’t blow the rocks
Like the chisel and the man who were bustin’ in the blocks

[Chorus]
Rocky mountain road
Give myself a look
God, I wanna go
To my home away from home
Rocky mountain road
Yellow sun below
Lord, I wanna go
To my home away from home

[Bridge]
I can be what I wanna be
I can fade by the apple tree
I wanna do what I wanna do
Wastin’ time with someone like you
I can be what I wanna be
Take me home and set me free
I wanna do what I wanna do
Remember me as I remember you

[Verse]
Once I was a man with a chisel in my hand
Breaking up the rocks with the sun burning my neck
Then I was the sun throwing down the light of day

Thinking I was hot, but a cloud got in my face
So I became a cloud casting shadows, dark and gray
‘Til a gust of wind came and blew my ass away
Then I was a wind, but I couldn’t blow the rocks
Like the chisel and the man who were bustin’ in the blocks

[Chorus]
Rocky mountain road
Yellow sun below
Lord, I wanna go…
To my home away from home
Rocky mountain road
Yellow sun below
Lord, I wanna go…
To my home away from home

[Bridge]
I can be what I wanna be
I can fade by the apple tree
I wanna do what I wanna do
Wastin’ time with someone like you
I can be what I wanna be
Take me home and set me free
I wanna do what I wanna do
Remember me as I remember you

[Refrain]
Home away from home
Home away from home
Lord, I wanna go…
To my home away from home
Home away from home
Home away from home
Lord, I wanna go…
To my home away from home

[Outro]
Lord, I wanna go…
To my home away from home…
