"I Don't Wanna Go Home" as written by Alan Parsons and Eric Woolfson....
"Go back home", you damn fool
Surely you know you can't win
You should've never have come near this place
You should have stayed outside
(Lookin' up)

It's too late to turn back
Nobody asked you to try
But they blinded you with diamonds
And all the money that money can buy

And I'm so afraid of being on my own
But I don't wanna go home

"You can't win", you damn fool
You drank all the wine from the cup
And your painted lady's gone now
And you're way back on the downside
(Lookin' up)

You can't catch the monkey on your back
Nobody asked you to try
But for every heart they held a spade
And you lost more than money can buy

And I'm so afraid of being on my own
But I don't wanna go home

I'm like a washed up rag, tattered and torn, yeah
I wish I'd never been born

And I'm so afraid of being on my own
But I don't wanna go home

I'm like a down and out just blowin' my horn
Oh, I don't wanna go home

I'm like a washed up rag, tattered and torn
Oh, I don't wanna go home, yeah

    General CommentFirst off, some trivia. This song opens with the same exact chord progressions as "I Wouldn't Want To Be Like You": Cm6/9 B♭m6/C

    The song is about a gambler who lost all of his money. His conscience (or somebody else) is shunning them, saying that they shouldn't have tried gambling, not even once. The song then switches perspectives to the gambler in the chorus. He feels like crap since he's lost everything. He just wishes he could play "one more time", but unfortunately for him, he's out of money.
