"Homeward" as written by David Gavurin and Harriet Wheeler....
You've stolen my heart and I want you to remember
Now what'll I do? living alone
You've stolen my heart and it hurts me to remember
Now where'll I go to? living alone

And a butterfly in the wind is drifting like I do
It's dumb - I know what I want to say
But I can't even take one breath

As night falls I hear voices on the radio
(Ooh) I'll follow their dreams
And wake up alone

And a butterfly in the wind is drifting like I do
It's dumb - I know what I want to say
But I can't even take one breath
So now still burning silently away
A storm without the thunder

    Song MeaningCan't believe that no one has commented on this song yet. This is one of the best songs on a wonderful album; just beautiful. I love the gently skipping 6/8 time signature, and the line "And a butterfly in the wind is drifting like I do" always gets me. Also, "a storm without the thunder" sums up the emotional turmoil so well, and the emptiness (no thunder), in just a few words.

    This is about having loved and lost, and feeling rudderless and drifting without the one you loved. Also being afraid to tell the other person how you really feel.

    I really miss the Sundays.
