lyrics

if the earth were to open up
and swallow me whole
then spit me out onto the ice
down on the north pole
i'd pitch a tent and strike a match
and burn my way through the ice
a body's mostly water
and snow is frozen h20
and i'd melt into a puddle then drift back home as smoke
home is where the heart is
and the heart is a powerful device

but you can never go home again
no matter where your heart has been
you can never go home again
much to my chagrin
you can never go home again
