"Home By Now/no Matter What" as written by and Peter William Ham....
The locusts are singing, the sun is red
It's gotten so late somehow
There's gonna be trouble, you know what they said
We should have been home by now
The thunder is rolling, the sky is black
It's gotten so dark somehow
There's gonna be danger, God I wish we were back
We should have been home by now
We should have been home by now

No matter what they tell us, no matter what they do
No matter what they teach us, what we believe is true
No matter what they call us, however they attack
No matter where they take us, we'll find our own way back
I can't deny what I believe, I can't be what I'm not
I know I'll love forever, I know
No matter what, if only tears were laughter

If only night was day, if only prayers were answered
Then we would hear God say
No matter what they tell you, no matter what they do
No matter what they teach you, what you believe is true
And I will keep you safe and strong, and sheltered from the storm

No matter where it's barren, A dream is being born
No matter who they follow, No matter where they lead
No matter how they judge us, I'll be everyone you need
No matter if the sun don't shine, or if the skies are blue
No matter what the ending, my life began with you
I can't deny what I believe, I can't be what I'm not
I know this love's forever, I know
No matter what
I can't deny what I believe, I can't be what I'm not
I know this love's forever, that's all that matters now
No matter what

The thunder is rolling, the sky is black
It's gotten so dark somehow
There's gonna be danger, God I wish I were back
We should have been home by now
We should have been home by now

    General CommentJim Steinman has such a great way with words. The lyrics are poetic and yet very clear!

    Whistle down the wind is one of my favourite musicals.
