Lyrics

Homesick

Written By: Bill McGuinness

I’ve been working my whole life long
Only trying to right this wrong
And my face is growing long
As I’m singing this sad old song

Cause I’m homesick for you
I’m homesick for you
I’m homesick for you
For you
For you

Just this morning in the yawning light
I hung my head and I prayed for sight
How I wish my prayers would take flight
All I need is to feel all right

But I’m homesick for you
I’m homesick for you
I’m homesick for you
For you
For you

For you can break me down
The cowboy from the clown
The beat-up old straw hat
From a crown, broken down
And homesick
Said I’m homesick

My ship may never kiss your shore
I’ll watch my ceiling turn to floor
And I will weep forever more
To be standing outside your door

Feeling homesick for you
I’m homesick for you
I’m homesick lonesome and blue… for you

I’m home sweet homesick (3x)

For you

This Is A Song

Written By: Bill McGuinness

This is song for all of the others
The strangers, their brothers, the freaks and their mothers
And this is a song… for you

This is a song for all of the people
The ones in the church and the ones on the steeplechase
Merry-go-round… the bend

This is a song for rainy day playing
Say can you imagine the prayers you’ve been praying
All coming true… for real

And this is a song for times you are lonely
When dreams aren’t enough and you wish you could only
Be satisfied, satisfied

But you’re not
Oh no you’re not
With what you’ve got
With what you’re not

What you’ve got is a feeling of ecstasy
Running all through you, it’s true
You can do what you wanted to
When you were still… a kid

What you’ve got is a feeling of ecstasy
Running all through you, it’s true
You can do what you wanted to
When you were still… a kid

And though you’re not, what you’ve got

Is a song, it’s a song for all of the others
The strangers, their brothers, the freaks and their mothers
And this is a song… for you

Monsters

Written By: Bill McGuinness

If you are tired and if you feel sad
Please don’t be sorry no more
And if you have lost everything you once had
Please don’t start crying what for

Cause I’ve been where you are
My friend it’s all right
Cause I am where you are
All day... and all night
All night

Every so often you fall on your face
Don’t let it bring you no shame
So you ain’t out front well you still got a place
Never forget you own name

Cause I’ve been where you are
My friend it’s all right
Cause I am where you are
All day…

And all night I run from the monsters
All day I hide in my bed
All night I wrestle the shadows
All day I’m locked in my head

So I’ve been where you are
My friend it’s all right
Cause I am where you are
All day... and all night
All night

Maybe the sunset will swallow the rain
Honey you never can tell
No one knows pleasure who hasn’t known pain
And we know it ever so well

So I’ve been where you are
My friend it’s all right
Cause I am where you are
All day…

And I’m with you all night
I’m with you all night (2x)
