Asia - Ready To Go Home Lyrics



On the street below these walls
Where I used to walk
Now I can barely crawl
All this darkness rising tall
Lord, shine a light for me
I'm waiting to be calle

I'm ready to go home
I'm ready to receive
Forgiveness for my sins
I'm ready to begin

Take this river to the sea
Where the delta flows
The tide is washing over me
Guide this soul to Heaven's door
Show me where tomorrow lies
I'm waiting to be home

I'm ready to lay down
I'm ready now to sleep
A promise I must keep
I'm ready to go home

Sometimes I lay down with these memories
Breathe shallow, deep inside of me
Time has run its course with me
And I'm ready to go home

When the evening shadows fall
When the time has come
I let defences fall
To surrender's to survive
I will give up everything
To those I leave behind

I'm ready to go home
I'm ready to receive
Forgiveness for my sins
I'm ready to begin

I'm ready to lay down
I'm ready now to sleep
A promise I must keep
I'm ready to go home
Again

Asia Ready To Go Home Comments
  1. Robinson Peixoto

    As my wife said: "a song to hear on your knees.."

  2. Simon Charman

    Song was written by Graham Gouldman of 10cc fame, as a tribute to his Father, but a brilliant songwriter of many top songs from the 60's onwards. Including Bus Stop and Look Through any Window by the Hollies.

  3. Keld Guldhammer

    Get the right cover for this please!

  4. Jose Maria Paredes Galindo

    Vaya temazooo....

    Ein grossartiger Song von ASIA, dieser Song kommt bei meiner Beerdigung zu hören mitten meiner Gedichte, Kurzgeschichten,- Zitate und eigene Gebete ! Beim Eingang wird von ELOY "Belle of Notre Dame" abgespielt, dann die Begrüssung wie das erste Gebet und sogleich danach dieser Song ! Alles vorbereitet !

  13. Millie-Eve Müller

    ONLY FOR: JOHN WETTON !

    ON THE STREET BELOW THESE WALLS
    WHERE I USED TO WALK
    NOW I CAN BARELY CRAWL
    ALL THIS DARKNESS RISING TALL
    LORD SHINE A LIGHT FOR ME
    I'M WAITING TO BE CALLE

    I'M READY TO GO HOME
    I'M READY RO RECEIVE
    FORGIVNESS FOR MY SINS
    I'M READY TO BEGIN

    TAKE THIS RIVER TO THE SEA
    WHERE THE DELTA FLOWS
    THE TIDE IS WASHING OVER ME
    GUIDE THIS SOUL TO HEAVENS DOOR
    SHOW ME WHERE TOMORROW LIES
    I'M WAITING TO BE HOME

    I'M READY TO LAY DOWN
    I'M READY NOW TO SLEEP
    A PROMISE I MUST KEEP
    I'M WAITING TO GO HOME.

    SOMETIMES I LAY DOWN WITH THESE MEMORIES
    BREATHE SHALLOW, DEEP INSIDE OF ME
    TIME HAS RUN IT'S COURSE WITH ME
    AND I'M READY TO GO HOME !

    SOLIS

    WHEN THE EVENING SHADOWS FALL
    WHEN THE TIME HAS COME
    I LET DEFENCES FALL
    TO SURRENDER'S TO SURVIVE
    I WILL GIVE UP EVERYTHING
    TO THOSE I LEAVE BEHIND

    I'M READY TO GO HOME
    I'M READY TO RECEIVE
    FORGIVENESS FOR MY SINS
    I'M READY TO BEGIN
    I'M READY TO LAY DOWN
    I'M READY NOW TO SLEEP
    A PROMISE I MUST KEEP
    I'M READY TO GO HOME

    FORGIVE ME !

    (ASIA)

  14. Millie-Eve Müller

    This Song from ASIA: Ready to go home is a miracle...so soft and also strong voices and deep in us....staying in all Hearts. So sad, John Wetton's Death on 31.1.2017 ! R.I.P.!

  15. T L

    R.I.P. John Wetton, age 67. Go home, and be at peace.

  16. I'm Your Huckleberry

    Good but for me Morten Harket from a-ha version is better.

    Jerry Oliver

    Morten's is good, he virtually copied Asia's version.

    I'm Your Huckleberry

    +Jerry Oliver ? Harket did his version in 1995 on his Wild Seed Album, Asia in 2001 on their Aura album! so unless he has a time machine he would never have heard the Asia version but they could have heard his?.

    Mr.Borrany

    I'm Your Huckleberry Asia Version is better😉

    I'm Your Huckleberry

    Mr.Borrany Harket's is better 😉.

  17. Margareta Wållberg

    On drums: Vinnie Colaiuta!

    Peter Green

    I saw Vinnie Colaiuta play with Jeff Beck in Melbourne 2007 .

  18. CIPRIANO DE RORE

    THE BEST BAND OF ROCK IN ANY TIME

  19. Tom Robbins

    Beautiful Powerful - I claim it as a song to my Father when he was near the end... he kept saying he wanted to go home, and it was not a dwelling he was talking about,, that was so clear....., and he did, and we could make it peaceful thank God.  Miss you Dad.

    Chris Jenkins

    Tom Robbins same with my father. xxx

  20. theLEMONS2009

    Great song, somehow I overlooked this one on Asia Aura, I will be dragging all those albums out for another play Immediately!!!  :)

  21. justin cox

    this song heat of the moment helped alot of people over come the 80s im sure

  22. SolarWind2010

    Super!!!

    Seth Gold

    Second best version of Ready to go home! The instrumentals are really great but the one version that makes u feel your time has really come is of course the Morten Harket' s one. For me , the most suitable voice for this. type of music., soft but with a very deep meaning and the one version that touches your heart and soul.

  23. rimula01

    Listen the voices!!!Wowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww, it´s amazing!!!!

  24. Nils Thisted

    Amazing, love it ...

  25. Plamen Milenkov
