There's a face in the crowd used to be my friend, now we see each other in the street and pretend like 'I don't see you, you don't see me, no hard feelings I guess'.

But I remember a happier time when it felt so easy to speak our minds, cos we had nothing to hide, no one to impress.

Sittin' out late on your roof so wet, smoking our first cigarettes, too young to have ever guessed we could end up so alone.

But there's nothing left left of my childhood home. No there's nothing left of my childhood home. Nobody there in my childhood home.

Now sometimes I wish I'd see you again at the wedding or funeral of a mutual friend but I guess it's been too long now to pretend. Cos when my mother died when I was 19 the first thing on my mind was to pack up and leave, and scatter my seeds on the sheet-thin soil of the city.

Cos there was nothing left of my childhood home. There was nothing left of my childhood home, nobody left in my childhood home.

I'm still searching for home, like the smoke in the breeze, like the blackest leaf on the family tree. And when I leave this world, oh God won't you take me back to my childhood home.

Won't you take me back to my childhood home.
