SEAN KEANE HOME AWAY FROM HOME LYRICS

I didn't sleep at all last night,
I stayed up 'til the dawn,
Banging out the jigs and reels 'til everyone had gone,
Singing some old shut-eyed songs I hadn't sung for years,
Knocking back the brandy and the beer.

CHORUS:

Back across the ocean to my home away from home
I'm Glad to be returning but sad to have to go
I'd like to find a way to be two places at one time
It's easy going back again but it's hard to say goodbye

I had one bag too many just as I was set to leave
I was loaded down with bacon and with sausages and tea
And I couldn't find my ticket as I'm walking out the door
'Til I emptied all my bags out on the floor.

CHORUS

On board the plane I sip a drink while waiting for the meal,
Just trying not to let my head know how my stomach feels.
There's a baby right behind me making sure that I won't sleep
And the flight's too full to find another seat.

CHORUS

I fell asleep at last just as the plane is touching down
And I age ten years just waiting for the bags to come around
And I make it home at last and I'm barely un-packed when
I'm already making plans to go again.
