"The Fastest Way Back Home" as written by and Francis Edward Turner....
I should have seen you were coming,
I should have been prepare
After all, getting half of what you wish for isn't so rare.
But still I wasn't ready,
You took me by surprise,
You brought a light to my dark like a word from the wise.

Weather wears the mountains right down into the sea,
So I will stand in the rain until I am clean.

We fell in love in the summer,
When the skies were clear,
But I'm still wearing my coat from winter last year.
I need to set my house in order,
Confess and cover my sins.
I need to make a home for you before inviting you in.

Weather wears the mountains right down into the sea,
So I will stand in the rain until I am clean.
Rivers carve the country,
A landscape shaped by a stream,
So I will swim in the river for as long as you need.

I said, darling oh my darling
You know that everything that I do
Is to try and make me good enough for you.
Darling oh my darling you know that everywhere that I go,
I'm just trying to find the fastest way back home.

Darling oh my darling
You know that everywhere that I go,
I'm just trying to find the fastest way back home.
