about

Home is Never Really Far Away
Written one drowsy summer after Donald Trump’s election and when our own government seemed particularly heartless. It seemed like we were too complacent and asleep at the wheel. At the same time, where else was there to go in such circumstance but home? Somehow out of all that I tried to write a song about the power of being in love in a difficult political climate. That, and the dangers of falling asleep in the sun and getting really badly sunburnt.

lyrics

Home Is Never Really Far Away J.Gronow

Verse 1.
We’ve all been asleep too long, wake up to a siren song
Home is never really far away
Summer came and days grew up, you burnt yourself out in the sun
Your shoulders blistered up and peeled away

Chorus
With your legs and your arms
And all your other reckless charms
Anything you want well you just say

Verse 2.
Cos, I ain’t leaving no time soon, I wonder what you’re going to do
When you realise I’m here to stay
The song’s pastiche, all this I know. Dinosaur Junior and Buffalo Tom
Ahh, you took my other words away

Repeat Chorus

Verse 3.
These right now are desperate times, morons grinning asinine
Bandit laws that take your soul away
The devil take them and their kind
Their stupid hair and feeble minds
Their legions of the dead and the dismayed.

Verse 4.
Cos we’ve all been asleep too long, a wakeup call is what we want
Home is never really far away
Home is never really far away
