Wanna Go Home - ReMix

yahondu

This is a total remake of an earlier posting.
Lead vocals courtesy of fellow Alonetoner, Dana.

In the lyrics, I was trying to capture a sense in which there is something else beyond -
something which draws me as it were homeward. A son, a father, a hope, an unmerited embrace…imago dei…

The tune started as a study of the chord progressions in a bossa nova tune by Carlos Lyra (Quando Chegares). I took those same progressions, mixed them up, and added a bluesy flavor.

Lyrics:

wanna go home - i
wanna go home
i dont wanna stay, stick around
just let me go

faces i know
faces i dont remember
the face of the one
the one that makes all the difference

wanna go home - i
wanna go home
i dont wanna stay, no,
stick around - Lord no!
just - let me go

hope for the dawn
when the night is over
hope that is blind
is hope that makes all the difference

wanna go home - i
wanna go home
i dont wanna stay, stick around - Lord no
just - let me go

(A further verse which did not make this recording:
Arms that await
waiting to heal the broken
arms that embrace
the embrace that makes all the difference)

nice song! I could listen to bossa nova all day, and the tinge of blues works very well. All these parent/offspring collaborations make me jealous!!!

Warmth rises lazily from the gentle guitar/singing, very enjoyable writing and singing in this. Here’s to fathers and daughters sharing their talent!
