"East West" as written by and Graham Gouldman....
East West
Over the ocean
Perpetual motion
Traveling around

No rest
Singing and playing
Night out and day in
Doing the rounds

What a great life this must seem!

Swelled joints
Everything classy
Nothing is tacky
Only the best

Lush girls
Older and dying
Sighing and crying
"This is success!"

What a great life this must seem!

But when I hear your voice
Singing out
The Bells Of Home
Are ringing out
And I feel all alone
(And I think of my home)

Cold times
A wind through the houses
The bleakness arouses
A longing to leave

Time flew
I wanted to see you
Somehow I could not do
Because of success

What a strange life this can be!

But when I hear your voice
Singing out
The bells of home
Are ringing out
And I feel all alone
(And I think of my home)

    General CommentGenerally it's about homesickness. But the main thing here is that this song is awesome! One of his best and yet seemingly least known songs.
