Homesick
Kings of Convenience Lyrics


I'll lose some sales and my boss won't be happy
But I can't stop listening to the sound
Of two soft voices blended in perfection
From the reels of this record that I've found
Every day there's a boy in the mirror
Asking me "What are you doing here?"
Finding all my previous motives
Growing increasingly unclear

I've traveled far and I've burned all the bridges
I believed as soon as I hit land
All the other options held before me
Would wither in the light of my plan

So I'll lose some sales and my boss won't be happy
But there's only one thing on my mind
Searching boxes underneath the counter
On a chance that on a tape I'd find

A song for
Someone who needs somewhere
To long for

Homesick
Cause I no longer know
Where home is

I'll lose some sales and my boss won't be happy,
but I can't stop listening to the sound
of two soft voices
blended in perfection
from the reels of this record that I've found.

Every day there's a boy in the mirror asking me...
What are you doing here?
Finding all my previous motives
growing increasingly unclear.

I've traveled far and I've burned all the bridges
I believed as soon as I hit land
all the other options held before me,
would wither in the light of my plan.

So I'll lose some sales and my boss won't be happy,
but there's only one thing on my mind
searching boxes underneath the counter,
on a chance that on a tape I'd find...
a song for someone who needs somewhere to long for.

Homesick.
Because I no longer know where home is

Everything around me seems so much different than where I'm from
And at this rate I think my fate's been sealed
This life's so unpredictable
We'll go continue to live a life that no one knows
Where's this gonna go?

Right here, right now
This is the beginning of the end
And I won't sing one single thing until we can get this right
I'm moving on
I'm moving on

Hey mom, I wrote you some soft songs
And tell dad I'm just fine
We had to choose
We made our moves
And now we got to go, go

Everything about me seemed so much different when I was young
I couldn't wait to take my place
Five years have passed
Good god have I been gone?
So why, I've never felt so alone in my whole life
Times not on my side

Right here, right now
This is the beginning of the end
And I won't sing a single thing until we can get this right
I'm moving on
I'm moving on

Hey mom, I wrote you some soft songs
And tell dad I'm just fine
We had to choose
We made our moves
And now we got to go

And why's this make me so nervous?
Why does everything go wrong?
Why's this make me so nervous?
Why does everything go wrong?

I'm holding on to a fairytale
We're moving forward but we're not there yet
I'm holding on to a fairytale
We're moving forward
we're moving forward

I'm holding on to a fairytale
We're moving forward but we're not there yet
I'm holding on to a fairytale
We're moving forward, we're moving forward

Hey mom, I wrote you some soft songs
And tell dad I'm just fine
We had to choose
We made our moves
And now we got to go

And why's this make me so nervous?
(You make me so, you make me so)
Why does everything go wrong?
Why's this make me so nervous?
(You make me so, you make me so)
Why does everything go wrong?

This song just reminds me of good period in my life back in the end of 2000s, of places and times I can never re-visit, which now gives it a whole different meaning. One of my KoC favourites for sure.

Today is a nice sunny day, I bought a new bicycle, made two laps around the Jarun lake and now I am back home, peacefully tired, sun is setting and this song fills me with joy like a fresh water fills a dry river bed. Human voice is the greatest musical instrument and this guys know how to play it right :)

Remember this day 6 years ago? Well, today I just had a great workout, I'm on my way home to see my husband, and it's a beautiful day. May God continue to bless you!

In my opinion, the lyrics of this song are pure and genuine due to the fact it is simply remarking upon the metaphysical paradox of when a person finds himself in last place he´d oight to be in, surrounded with by everyone except who´s essencial to him. the one which makes his home wherever she is. Thumbs up for Kings of Convenience. THANK YOU.

Man, I heard this song in a bar in Japan, and I loved the S&G feel. But the only lyrics I could remember was "my plan". I searched for it for so damn long with only these lyrics and the words 'acoustic' or 'folk', until just now I finally typed in "my plan lyrics simon and garfunkel" and found this! I lost a couple hours of sleep for it, but I AM SO HAPPY!

When I was an exchange student, I used to hear this song and made me homesick to my country Indonesia. Now, I'm in Indonesia, and I heard this song again, made me me homesick to my host-country, USA... :(
