HOBSON STREET

Words and music by Sheila Kirsten Hughes


driving through my old town
nothing really looks the same
the fabric of my family unraveled
and slipped away
well, i've been runnin'
i've been runnin'
just as far away as i could get
so no one could ever hurt me
no one could ever hurt me again

there's not much left of me here
my father died 30 miles away
the house that I grew up in
seems so different now
memories fade
i'm alive, i'm alive
isn't that enough?
no, it's never quite enough, is it?
i keep on looking for the answers
looking for the answers, when i go

home
to where it all began
home
to visit my old friends
and the past ain't gonna break me
no, the past ain't gonna make me who i am

never thought i'd come back
they never thought i'd leave
never thought i'd stand here raising my glass
to my old friends
"come back anytime," they say
knowing i won't stay
and they'll probably always be here
probably always be here, when i go

home
to where it all began
home
to visit my old friends
and the past ain't gonna break me
no, the past ain't gonna make me who i am

Nah, nah, nah
Nah, nah, nah

walking through St. Petersburg
step past the shadows over Hobson Street
trying hard to reconcile the distance
between bitterness and grace
feel the ghosts gatherin' around me
that's as close as i can get
though there's no one left to hurt me
no one left to hurt me, I'm going

home
to where it all began
home
to visit my old friends
and the past ain't gonna break me
no, the past ain't gonna make me who i am

the road is calling my name
dial my love on the phone
tell him that there's nothing left for me here
i'm coming home
see the sunset in the distance
that's as perfect as it gets
and the past ain't gonna break me,
no, the past ain't gonna make me who i am
i'm going home
to where it all begins
home
