Close to Home Song Lyrics


ADAM
All that I had to give, I gave that boy
Once he was young and once he brought my heart such joy
He'd ride my shoulders and 'cross the fields we'd roam
I still can see those moments like yesterday
I was a fool to think they'd make him want to stay
At home
YOUNG CAIN AND ABEL
One two three
Owls are in the tree
Four five six
Foxes in the sticks
Six five four
Goslings on the shore
Three two one
Now we all go home
One two three
Owls are in the tree
Four five six
Foxes in the sticks
Six five four
Goslings on the shore
Three two one
Now we all go home
ADAM (simultaneously)
It's time to make a home
Heaven knows the life's been hard
Summers brief and arid
Winters bleak and numb
Look what we call home
These old walls are stained and scarred
EVE
I can still remember
What each scar was from
ADAM
You could call it run down
EVE
Worn out
ADAM
Threadbare
BOTH
And I guess you'd come
Close to home
Close to home
ADAM
And I remember, in someone else's garden long ago
We had all we could eat
EVE
But it seems the fruit our own hands grow
Somehow tastes twice as sweet
ABEL
Six five four
Goslings on the shore
Three two one
Now we all go home
ADAM
On this barren plot
ABEL
One two three
Owls are in the tree
ADAM
We'll plant our wheat and dig our well
ABEL
Four five six
Foxes in the sticks
ADAM
And we'll be a family
ABEL
Six five four
Goslings on the shore
ADAM
Steady as a star
EVE
Look at what we've got
ADAM AND ABEL
Ba ba bum, ba ba ba ba bum
EVE
Only what we've made ourselves
ADAM AND ABEL
Eight nine ten, now we start again
EVE
Though it's next to nothing
Look how rich we are
ADAM
Funny now how Eden doesn't seem so far
ADAM AND EVE
Come sit besides me in the dying light
What storms the morning brings, we'll weather all right
Your hand in my hand
And as we sit here, huddled in the gloom
Paradise seems strangely close
Close to home
ABEL
Ba ba bum, ba ba ba ba bum
ADAM AND EVE
Close to home
ABEL
Three two one
Now we all go
ADAM, EVE, AND ABEL
Home
