Lyrics

Always Be Home to Me
copyright 2003 Richard Popovic

Flowers may not line the streets anymore
Flags may not wave in the breeze
You may wonder what happened as you?re passing through
But it?ll always be home to me

The shops may be closed down on Palisade Ave
For sale signs are all you will see
But no one is buying, cause this town is dying
But it?ll always be home to me

Don?t know what it is that makes me return
Time after time after time
Don?t know why I love this dirty old town
Don?t know why I feel like she?s mine

There?s the front porch where I first kissed a girl
There?s the Hudson and the Tappan Zee
There?s no jobs, there?s no malls, hardly nothing at all
But it?ll always be home to me

Well I?m setting down roots on the banks of the river
Like my folks did in seventy-three
Our house it still stands, on our small patch of land
That?s always been home to me

Don?t know what it is that makes me return
Time after time after time
Don?t know why I love this dirty old town
Don?t know why I feel like she?s mine

Flowers may not line the streets anymore
Flags may not wave in the breeze
You may wonder what happened as you?re passing through
But it?ll always be home to me
