There was a farmhouse that had long since been deserted We stopped and carved our hearts into the wooden surface We thought just for an instant we could see the future We thought for once we knew what really was important Coming up close Everything sounds like welcome home Come home and oh by the way Don't you know that I could make A dream that's barely half-awake come true I wanted to say But anything I could have said I felt somehow that you already knew We got back in the car and listened to a Dylan tape We drove around the fields until it started getting late And I went back to my hotel room on the highway And he just got back in his car and drove away Coming up close Everything sounds like welcome home Come home and oh by the way Don't you know that I could make A dream that's barely half-awake come true I wanted to say But anything I could have said I felt somehow that you already knew Coming up close Everything sounds like welcome home Come home Coming up close Everything sounds like welcome home Come home Come on home
