Homeward Bound
Simon & Garfunkel Lyrics


I'm sittin' in the railway station
Got a ticket to my destination
On a tour of one-night stands
My suitcase and guitar in hand
And every stop is neatly planned
For a poet and a one-man band

Homeward bound
I wish I was
Homeward bound
Home where my thought's escapin'
Home where my music's playin'
Home where my love lies waitin'
Silently for me

Every day's an endless stream
Of cigarettes and magazines
And each town looks the same to me
The movies and the factories
And every stranger's face I see
Reminds me that I long to be

Homeward bound
I wish I was
Homeward bound
Home where my thought's escapin'
Home where my music's playin'
Home where my love lies waitin'
Silently for me

Tonight I'll sing my songs again
I'll play the game and pretend
But all my words come back to me
In shades of mediocrity
Like emptiness in harmony
I need someone to comfort me

Homeward bound
I wish I was
Homeward bound
Home where my thought's escapin'
Home where my music's playin'
Home where my love lies waitin'
Silently for me
Silently for me

"Like emptiness in harmony, I need someone to comfort me" I'm SO feeling these lyrics right now.

@Ben Pietrzykowski emptiness in harmony is just a fill in to fit the song's rhythm.. doesn't really mean anything .. Most all songs have fill ins .. I would have said "Like emptiness no one can see, I need someone to comfort me"

Please*

Can you explain to me the “emptiness in harmony “ I don’t really understand that or can’t even make it mean something lol
