So sometimes when the music stops
I seem to hear a distant sound
Of waves and seagulls
Football crowds and church bells
And I wanna go back to my home town
Joe Jackson is a great song writer. Here he captures, almost perfectly what most of us think about from time to time – our hometown. I confess, there are times I wish I could go back to Pembroke Mass, and spend a day fishing on Chandler Pond or playing pick up basketball with my friends behind the Junior High School.
I’ve been back to Pembroke, and like the song says, I know it will never be the same.
I guess that is how it must be – but not how I wish it could be.
And now I plough through piles
Of bills, receipts and credit cards
And tickets and the Daily News
And sometimes I just wanna go back to my home town
