There and back I have traveled
Here and there I have walked
And I have found more beauty than I'd ever had thought
But I still dream often of that place I know
Deeper in my bones than most places ever go.

I can see home shining like a silver star
Like paradise calling me from oh so far
When I shade my eyes I can just make it out
A long dirt road, a faithful dog, and an old white house

I have survived the bustle, but I still like the lights
I have stared up in wonder at countless shining nights
But no matter where I go, I find there I am
The same old stranger in an even stranger land

I can see home shining like a silver star
Like paradise calling me from oh so far
When I shade my eyes I can just make it out
A long dirt road, a faithful dog, and an old white house

Often have hungered for the way you feel
And the smell of summer thunder and the quiet winter fields
I have walked with madness and lay down with lies
And learned how to stand, but better yet how to fly.

I can see home shining like a silver star
Like paradise calling me from oh so far
When I shade my eyes I can just make it out
A long dirt road, a faithful dog, and an old white house

Yesterdays are many and tomorrow's filled with doubt
And still I don't know what this whole darn thing is about
But you what you are and it's better to find out.
What it is that you love most of all.

I have loved so many things in this great wide world
And the simple sounds of home are the sweetest things I've heard
For right here the means are humble but hearts are proud
And don't mind standing up and saying right out loud

I can see home shining like a silver star
Like paradise calling me from oh so far
When I shade my eyes I can just make it out
A long dirt road, a faithful dog, and an old white house
