Blues Traveler

When Johnny Comes Marching Home

 

 

 

Take a look out to the east, where the sun will rise

And think of all the possibility it brings

And it's that which makes it seem a hope that life dead lies

With its rationale that enslaves kings

 

But now I can't escape the fact that it feel wrong to me

And though the sun shines all the same I still feel lost

Because illumination doesn't mean you get to see what matters

Sometimes you buy the fear and know the cost

Sometimes you have to buy the fear to know the cost

 

And when I come marching home

When I come marching home

When Johnny comes marching home again to you

I swear it'll be the last time

 

I close my eyes and I can see a thousand scenes of happy ending

But I'm relieved to wake up to the darkest sky

The night feels clear, the course unchanged

And a lonely wind gives call

The darkest sky allows the brightest stars to steer your own ship by

 

But now I can't escape the fact those dreams feel real to me

And though before I've laid my siege and faced attack

In the end, I must admit, I'm just the least bit terrified

For the first time I look for home and I think of starting back

For the first time, I think of starting back

 

The heart that beats

Is a heart that grows

And through torrid gale

I hold it wheel, because I know

Where you are

Is where I'll be

But it's who you are

That already gives comfort to me

 

And should the dawn ever decide to set me free

Perhaps in a new way by the light of day

I could learn to face the sunrise

But that still remains for you and I to see

Cause now I'm able to escape that I'm alone in this

And though before I've always taken it that way

And though I'm not used to the exercise

I can offer you my hand

I might even learn to love the light of day

I might even learn to love the light of day

 

And when I come marching home

When I come marching home

When Johnny comes marching home again to you

I swear it'll be the last time

 

Because this time I want to stay

I won't ever want to go away

And when I come marching home again to you

I swear it'll be the last time
