Cover, originally recorded by The Beltones...
The thought of her kiss was the place where I lived
The memory where I made a home, good place to rest my head
Sleeping there wouldn't freeze me half to death
It weren't infested with scratching vermin and blackened with termite shit

Now I think I can safely say
I've spent too long just wasting away
A hundred miles inland waiting for my ship

And I can never run, never run away

I couldn't bear to face the light of day
And ask my heart "why d'ya beat yourself up for something so far away?"
So in the home built of dreams is where I'd stay
Sweet touch of her love on my hack-up hands burned all the hate away

Now I think I can safely say
I've spent too long just wasting away
It didn't cross my mind I'd ever see the day

And I can never run, never run away
