The Only Home I've Ever Known

Reckless Kelly

I’ve been all around the world
But I’ve never really seen anything
Always looking up ahead
Or too far behind
Never in between

Surrounded by my fears
And tortured by the miles
Drowned out by the cheers
And all those empty aisles

Well I ain’t growing any younger
And I can see the shadows getting long
Sometimes I gotta wonder
Why I hang around this place I don’t belong

Oh and you’re the one I know
And I carry here inside
Even out here on the road
You can bring me peace of mind

I’m gonna get on down the line
Leave this other world behind
Before the devil even knows I’m gone
I been on the road too long
I can’t leave you hanging on
Clip my wings I’m never more to roam
You’re the only home I’ve ever known

Well I started out with nothing
That’s exactly what I’ve got on me now
Cause a lifetime taking chances
Only leaves you with what fortune will allow

Oh and bless these memories
And what’s led me to this night
They’ve helped me to believe
What I have to do is right

Oh and damn these wasted years
And damn these wasted miles
Damn these wasted tears
And all this wasted time

I’m gonna get on down the line
Leave this other world behind
Before the devil even knows I’m gone
I’ve been on the road too long
I can’t leave you hanging on
Clip my wings I’m never more to roam
You’re the only home I’ve ever known
You’re the only home I’ve ever known
