This song seemed appropriate, considering the stuff I wrote yesterday about successful f**k-ups. I heard it a long time ago but I wasn't able to get my hands on the lyrics. Finally, Google came through (as usual) and I had the song downloaded in minutes. It's very beautiful and moving, and I wish I could put the music on here as well, but the lyrics will serve. I think everybody can relate to this...in one way or another. Enjoy!

GOING HOME by Mary Fahl

They say there’s a place
Where dreams have all gone
They never said where
But I think I know
It’s miles through the night, just over the dawn
On the road that will take me home.

I know in my bones
I’ve been here before
The ground feels the same
Though the land’s been torn
I’ve a long way to go, the stars tell me so
On this road that will take me home.

Love waits for me ‘round the bend
Leads me endlessly on
Surely sorrows shall find their end
And all our troubles will be gone
And I’ll know what I’ve lost and all that I’ve won
When the road finally takes me home.

And when I pass by
Don’t lead me astray
Don’t try to stop me
Don’t stand in my way
I’m bound for the hills where cool waters flow
On this road that will take me home.

Love waits for me ‘round the bend
Leads me endlessly on
Surely sorrows shall find their end
And all our troubles will be gone
And we’ll know what we've lost and all that we’ve won
When the road finally takes me home.

I’m going home...
