Halfway home


by Nerina Pallot. Buy album CD: Fires


I've got a quarter in my pocket of an apple left to eat:
It's a wonder that I'm standing on my own two feet.
In the shadow of a thousand veiled Victorian goodbyes
Jewels of litter come to greet me, and it stings my eyes.
Oh it burns like fire and it pulls me through -
We are parted by desire for the strange and new.
I've got a quarter in my pocket, I'm advancing to the booth,
I am picking up and praying that I talk to you.

And now, I'm halfway home, I'm at the corner of our street,
Would you like to come and meet me?
Now that I am halfway home
Man, I never felt so lonely - I long for you to hold me now I'm home.

Somedays, there was comfort as a stranger far from home.
Sometimes, a hunger and a longing not to be alone.
Imagining emotion in each man that I would meet -
But it was physics, and subtraction, to an ancient beat.
Oh, it burned like a fire, and I wore it so...
We are tied up in desire, and we won't let go.
Well, I've no quarter in my pocket of no apple left to eat:
I am running, I am running and I can't feel my feet.

Cos now, I'm halfway home, I'm at the corner of our street,
Would you like to come and meet me?
Now that I'm halfway home
Man, I never felt so lonely - I long for you to hold me now that I'm home.

Now I'm home, home is where I wanna be.
Now I'm home, home is where I gonna be.
Past the church, and past the steeple, past the sad and lonely people,
Past the old school on the avenue, I am running, I am running...

And now, I'm halfway home, I'm at the corner of our street,
Would you like to come and meet me?
Now that I am halfway home
Man, I never felt so lonely - I long for you to hold me now I'm home.
