lyrics

I had enough
sometimes a man can only take
a dose of truth about himself
and you never bluffed
so I turned myself to stone and
dreamed my flesh to bone
I had enough

saints will preserve
the lost and troubled souls in love,
the mystified and merely lost
or so I heard
even saints would come to sin
to find the fix I'm in
ain't no coming back
or so I believed
in my fog of rancor
chains of anger bound

did you ever learn?
I thought I saw you in my dreams
wore your hospital greens
and I start to burn
I was feverin' out so mean
and sipping kerosene
and your laugh was like a match

and when the flames died down
and I looked around the wreck
of what was left and all I saw
was a broken crown
no queen to bear the name
no king, no fool to blame
and I realized
there was one thing in this world
gold and pearl
for any king still means a thing

so if there's gas in the tank
and a star in the sky
and a single salted tear still
swimming in your eye
if this old heart can race me faster than the
sun's pale morning light
then raise the latch,
I'm coming home tonight
coming home tonight
tonight
polish up this steel and chrome,
I'm coming home

I ask you true:
is there common ground enough
to build a highway brings me
running back to you?
don't you think you can recall
the days before the fall,
how your heartbeat used to sound
those gunpowder days and torch nights
when I first was coming round

so if there's gas in the tank
and a star in the sky
and a single salted tear still
swimming in your eye
if this old heart can race me faster than the
sun's pale morning light
then raise the latch,
I'm coming home tonight
coming home tonight
tonight
polish up this steel and chrome,
I'm coming home
