Kim Baker: Music & Lyrics

I Am Home

(Words and music by Kim Baker)
Copyright 2004
Written about my home, the beloved California coastside ~ and about the love I have always longed for in my heart.
~Words and Music by Kim Baker~

I'm gonna run away, from this town
Drive down that country road, until I am found
To the smallest little town I can find
Down a riverbed, divine

And we'll settle into your way of life
And we'll buy a little shop, down on the main streetlight
And we'll be open from ten to five
And we'll smile at the fireflies, when it's closing time

And everyone will know my name
And all fifty faces, will stay the same
For I am home
I am home

And you and I, will have a great love affair
You'll show me the meaning of passion, with one toss of your hair
And the warm sun, will beat down upon your skin
Your arms and hands divine, as you hold me within

And everyone will know my name
And all fifty faces, will stay the same
For I am home
I am home

Bridge:
And the field will be our dance floor
And the stars will be our light
And we'll dance like this for hours
As you hold, as you hold me, tight.

And you and I make love for hours
Get lost in each other's eyes
I feel your warm hands, on my body
And sleep under the calmest skies

And everyone will know my name
And all fifty faces, will stay the same
For I am home
I am home
~
