Simple Minds - Home Lyrics

God gave me travelling shoes,
God gave me the wanderer's eye,
God gave two gold coins to help me to the other side.
He then turned around and said - be careful how the small things grow,
When God gives you travelling shoes,
You know that it is time to go.

He then sent in the ship at night,
And it took me to a hidden port.
Slipped me the key at last,
To open up my prison door.
Gave me blackbird's wings,
Gifted me with beggar's eyes.
But when God sends in the jackals,
You know that it is time to say bye, bye, bye.
So I'm going home.


So God gave me travelling shoes,
Gave me one last reprieve.
He then gave me hunger,
Denying me the air to breath.
Not even one small case,
Not even one last goodbye.
But God gave me travelling shoes,
And without them I would surely die,
So I'm going home.

  3. Marquise Williams

    Christian song for sure 🙌🏾

  4. Lucas Lima

    Thanks to upload the music video for this amazing song.

    Sadly the only single from the amazing Black And 050505 album.

  5. Lucas Lima

    Amazing single from the underrated Black and White 050505 (2005) album.

    Great rock song, i confess that this song isn't one of my favourites from this album, but the songs grow a lot on me after many listenings, great solo from Charlie Burchill, & great chorus

    480p in 2019 ???

    Lucas Lima

    This isn't a new song or music video, this song it's from the album Black & White 050505 of 2005, so the quality is 480p.

  10. Mindaugas Kliukas

    Sounds quite U2-ish! Like nonetheless!;)

  11. Marco M

    Grandi sempre....musica per le mie orecchie

  20. jtlampsu2

    Why is the 'Rockets' video "blocked" ??? ;-{

    Lucas Lima

    Yeah, i am from Brazil, and here too Rockets must be the only music video of Simple Minds that isn't uploaded.

  21. Clare Ross

    Can always travel in mind. This song reminds me. Love it x

  22. Allan Sonac

    Nice song but it reminds me of U2 from 2007.

    alpine funicular

    I wouldn't have put a date on it but it sounds very U2 to me too. Simple Minds lost it after New Gold Dream in my book, but then again I'm just old and grumpy ;-)

  23. Chridele59200

    Le retour du son Simple minds

  24. Toni Remer

    Yes!!!! The sound of the 80s is coming back, and I love it. I'm so happy that Simple Minds went back to their original sound, because that's what we love, enjoy, and it can take us far, far away from the daily grind of our lives just as it did back then.
    Jim Kerr and the rest of the band STILL look absolutely fantastic, and Jim's voice is STILL phenomenal. Thank God that great music is making a great comeback.
    I can't wait to see them in concert! I've seen Duran Duran during their 25th anniversary tour, which what we paid for, we never got -- for $300 per ticket, we were supposed to meet the band BEFORE the concert, and we were supposed to hang out with them AFTER the concert (nope); we were supposed to get autographs (nope), but we were given 2 drink tickets for half price, a bag, and that's it. I was so damn disappointed with that. Don't get me wrong, they played a great concert, but I'll never spend $300 per ticket again, that's for damn sure.

  25. john

    Why is simple minds so underrated.

    Dave Robson

  30. john paul john

    love this band, but this is a little pedestrian,.. think they need get some dirt under the fingers

    Lucas Lima

    It's not a new track is from 2005, from Black and white 050505 album.

    john paul john

    u got admit they play it safe,..they should experiment a bit [email protected] Lima

    Lucas Lima

    @john paul john They already do it, both "Big Music" (2014) & "Walk Between Worlds" (2018) could be considering "experimental".

    But i still think that Black and White 050505 is a great album, maybe "safe" but great & inspired rock album.

    I confess that in the first time that i listen to "Home" lead single from Black and White 050505, i thought it's a "meh" "okay" "average track", but the song grows after more listens.

    Sorry for the english and grammar. A Simple Minds Brazilian fan.
