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 a 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

Oh 'cause 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
I've no apple left to eat
I am running, I am running and I can't feel my feet

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, I'm halfway home
Man, I never felt so lonely
I long for you to hold me now I'm home

Home is where I wanna be
Now I'm home
Home is where I'm 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, oh oh oh

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 that I

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