Restless in the autumn wind
when the leaves begin to fall.
Mama says I'm lost again
because I didn't answer her call,
and I guess she doesn't know
how her child has grown
and that I'm halfway home.
Look at all the troubles I see,
don't they turn my head around!
But Mama, don't you worry 'bout me,
I don't let it bring me down.
Someday it may get old
somewhere down this road
but now I'm only halfway home.
I heard the call, I answered it
and I left my past behind.
Along the way, the road has turned a bit
so I keep my compass in sight.
I guess I've got a lot more to go
and how the cold wind blows
when you're only halfway home.
