Bring Your Mind Back Home

Paul Lauzon

How long you been walking with your head up off your shoulders
How long you been feeling that you're only growing older
How long you been walking with your head up in the clouds
How long you been dizzy trying to follow all the crowds?

Bring your mind back home, bring your mind back home
No use walking this road alone you got all the friends you need when your mind's at home

How long since you been alive to hail the morning hour
How long since you stopped to look and breathe a face of flowers
How long since a kind and gentle word said to your friend
How long since you closed your eyes to see it all again?

Bring your mind back home, bring your mind back home
No use walking this road alone you got all the friends you need when your mind's at home

How long you been throwing all your promised love away
Come to rest nights empty handed waiting for the day
How long since you rocked a soft young baby off to sleep
And sat to listen breathlessly to the nighttime laugh and weep?

Bring your mind back home, bring your mind back home
No use walking this road alone you got all the friends you need when your mind's at home

There's no other human being can open up your door
You are the treasure you yourself are always searching for
Keep it burning all the time, the love light in your eyes
Sweeter sounds and gentle secrets take you by surprise

Bring your mind back home, bring your mind back home
No use walking this road alone you got all the friends you need when your mind's at home
