"Far From The Home I Love" as written by and Sheldon Harnick Jerry Bock....
How can I hope to make you understand
Why I do
What I do
Why I must travel to a distant land
Far from the home I love
Once I was happily content to be
As I was
Where I was
Close to the people who were close to
Here in the home I love
Who could see that a man would come who would change the shape of dream
Helpless now I stand with him
Watching older dreams grow dim

O what a melancholy choice this is
Wanting home
Wanting him
Closing my heart to every hope but his
Leaving the home I love
There where my heart has settled long ago
I must go
I must go
Who could image I'd be wandering so
Far from the home I love
Yet
There with my love
I'm home!
