Frank:
On the day I went away...

All:
Goodbye...

Frank:
Was all I had to say...

All:
Now I...

Frank:
I want to come again, and stay.

All:
Oh, my, my...

Frank:
Smile, and that will mean I may.

`Cause I've seen, oh, blue skies
Through the tears in my eyes
And I realize, I'm going home.

All:
I'm going home.

Frank:
Everywhere it's been the same...

All:
...feeling...

Frank:
...like I'm outside in the rain...

All:
...wheeling...

Frank:
...free to try and find a game...

All:
...dealing...

Frank:
...cards for sorrow, cards for pain.

`Cause I've seen, oh, blue skies
Through the tears in my eyes
And I realize, I'm going home.
I'm going home.
I'm going home.
I'm going home.

    My OpinionStunning. The second verse ("Everywhere has been the same...") reminds me of 'Sylvia' by Pulp.
    Such a beautiful song. Tim's voice seems to have got lower since the start of the movie by I'm going Home haha. Maybe it's just me. Love it

    General CommentIf I may use a bit of self publication in this thread, I'd love it if some of you guys would kindly have a quick listen to a cover of this song which I recorded the other day.

    This song has been in my head for the past two weeks, and so I just had to record it; mostly, because it's a great song, but partially because I feel that every single line in that song has a very vivid meaning of my life at the moment. Thanks in advance, and any comments or constructive criticisms are greatly appreciated.

    A wonderful song from a wonderful film and stage show. Brilliant writing by Richard O'Brian, and a fantastic performance from Tim Curry.
