"A Sort Of Homecoming" (New Version)

Oh come away, oh come away
Oh come, oh come away say I
Oh come away, oh come away
Oh come, oh come away say I

And you know it's time to go
Through the sleet and driving snow
Across the fields of mourning
To a light that's in the distance

And you hunger for the time
Time to heal, desire, time
And your earth moves beneath
Your own dream landscape

Oh, on borderland we run and still we run
We run and don't look back
I'll be there, I'll be there
Tonight, tonight

I'll be there tonight
I believe
I'll be there so high
I'll be there tonight
Tonight

Oh come away, oh come away
Oh come, Oh come away say I
Oh come away, oh come away
Oh come, Oh come away say I

The wind will crack in wintertime
This bomb-blast lightning waltz
No spoken words, just a scream, oh

Tonight we'll build a bridge across the sea and land
See the sky, the burning rain
She will die and live again
Tonight

And your heart beats so slow
Through the rain and fallen snow
Across the fields of mourning
To a light that's in the distance

Oh, don't sorrow,
No don't weep for tonight, at last
I am coming home
I am coming home

(This version features Peter Gabriel on backing vocals)
