Closer To Home

There in the corner all gathering dust
Reminders and memories of my wanderlust
Still wait to be shared with the few that I've always called friends

Good intentions had I when I first placed them there
Never a one to just stand and stare
But as time has gone by the emotional ties have all waned

Of the miles in my mind
I still sometimes find
That my thoughts seem to turn to
Somewhere closer to home

Headed for free fall but what should I do?
Slam on the brakes for a moment or two?
Always searching for something and trying to catch the next wave

For those left behind it's a wonderful thing
To ponder my whereabouts - guess where I've been
But they'll just have to wait until sentiment carries me home

Of the miles in my mind
I still often find
That my thoughts seem to turn to
Somebody closer to home

Tied to this room by invisible thread
Unable to speak of the things I once did
But still my feet twitch at the thought of travelling free

So what will become of my legacy trust?
Bought by some bidder - sold by those who must
Sift through my life, exploring degree by degree

And now in a corner all gathering dust
Somewhere in Hampstead right next to the bust
Of a better-known person who's ventures are all now revered

Of the miles in my mind
I still always find
That my thoughts seem to turn to
Some place closer to home

Closer to home
Closer to home
