about

I wrote this piece back in December 2012 but abandoned it until I rediscovered it for my August 2014 release. I tidied up some of the lyrics, and nailed down the structure a bit and suddenly it all just fell together.

lyrics

There's a big black cloud on my horizon
It's getting so dark it's hard to see
There's a storm in the wind
And a long hard road ahead
I know it's gonna take its toll on me

But I don't care, I don't mind, 'cause I'm coming home
I don't care, I don't mind, 'cause I'm coming home

I can hear the hounds out on the wastelands
Baying for blood, are they coming for me?
Now the rain's coming down like frozen bullets
And the winds so cold, cuts me till I bleed

But I don't care, I don't mind, 'cause I'm coming home
I don't care, I don't mind, 'cause I'm coming home

Oh, I'm coming home

The moon and her stars have passed beyond the veil
Darkness fills the cold night sky
There's a shadow on my trail and a long hard road ahead
I know it's gonna take its toll on me

But I don't care, I don't mind, 'cause I'm coming home
I don't care, I don't mind, I don't care, I don't mind,
I don't care, I don't mind, 'cause I'm coming home

Oh, I'm coming home
