lyrics

Well, she looked so small
She looked so frail
It was like the world forgot her
as she stood outside the jail

They sit and stare
They rarely speak
She comes to see him
the same time every week

And never wants to leave
but she knows she must
Then the yellow cab comes right on time
and scoops her up like a speck of dust

When it’s time to go home
It’s time to go home
where the night stay too long
in a world that’s just gone wrong
It’s time to go home

How did one summer
become nineteen years?
The Alaskan winters took their toll
and then they made it clear

The gillnets and seiners
The salmon and crab
The dull-eyed girls of Ketchikan
that took all that I had

I could sell the boat
Cash the whole thing down
Move back to the 48
just tell stories back in that small town

When it’s time to go home
It’s time to go home
where the night stay too long
in a world that’s just gone wrong
It’s time to go home

Well, your t-shirt’s clean
like your dungarees
And in two days you will be
on your way overseas

Sit on the bed
with a warm six-pack
Ah, it’s not like how they said
but it’s too late now to take it back

So you make some calls
but no one’s home
You nurse your beers
and spend the long night by the telephone

When it’s time to go home
It’s time to go home
where the night stay too long
in a world that’s just gone wrong
It’s time to go home
