Take Me Home

from by Ian James Music



Tribute to the late guitarist Tommy Bolin. Bolin fans will catch all the hints dropped throughout the lyrics.


Dropped down on the open road,
ghost town that I call home,
wild dogs won't leave me alone,
they're biting right through my bones
sun sets and the wind, it blows,
broken down with a desert rose
picking up that scent again,
I can't believe the state I'm in.

Oh baby won't you take me home
oh baby please don't leave me alone

Is my mind playing tricks on me?
I can't trust what I see
Soundwaves and broken hearts
silver birds shooting through the dark,
I hear your voice
I can't see your face
electric fire in the blood I taste
roots growing from my feet
I feel so trapped
yet I feel so free


I'm digging deeper
now I'm in a pit
my chance to escape from this
the music plays on a purple plane
while the gang goes
completely insane
Rosie sings as Carol strums
Karen cries while Alexis hums
I close my eyes and I feel the spin
I can't believe the state I'm in
