Well I stepped into the station
With my only suitcase in my hand
I bought a ticket at the counter
And I said I gotta stick to my plan
'Cause I love that girl with all my might
And I think I finally got it right

5 years, 4 months, 3 days
Goin' home tonight

It was 5 years ago I was barely just 21
And I wound up lookin' at the wrong end of a gun
But I finally think I got it right
I ain't seen a cop all night

5 years, 4 months, 3 days
Goin' home tonight

I've been lyin' and cryin'
And searchin' and dyin'
And tryin' just to run from myself
I've been burnin' and yearnin'
And tossin' and turnin'
I couldn't think of nobody else

Well I reached up on the shelf
For my tattered old Samsonite
Oh you're waitin' at the station
In the same old dress that I like
Well now aren't you a beautiful sight
I think I finally saw the light

5 years, 4 months, 3 days
Goin' home tonight

I've been lyin' and cryin'
And searchin' and dyin'
Tryin' just to run from myself
I've been burnin' and yearnin'
And tossin' and turnin'
I couldn't think of nobody else

Well I reached up on the shelf
For my tattered old Samsonite
I see you're waitin' at the station
In the same old dress that I like
Well now aren't you a beautiful sight
I think I finally saw the light

5 years, 4 months, 3 days
Goin' home tonight
5 years, 4 months, 3 days
Goin' home tonight
Alright
