lyrics

I’m guided by the homing instinct on a mission through the unknown
fiercely longing, strong, insistent, intuition pilots me on

love is the bearing I hold in my heart
a compass unerring, the goal and the start
the light of a beacon when all hope is lost
the sight I am seeking, an ocean to cross

home, to the warmth of my nest
home, to the one I love best
home, how it beats in my breast
home, let my heart be expressed

to be alive, to span a distance through the clouds, and by the wind blown,
to face the storms of my existence navigating by faith alone

eternally going astray to discern
the wisdom of knowing the way to return
in the spring of my nature to soar from this earth
wings over water, the course of rebirth

home, to the warmth of my nest
home, to the one I love best
home, how it beats in my breast
home, where my heart is at rest

migrating birds on the radar screen
gliding homeward
magnetic fields glowing green
under polarized light
by the stars of my memory
i ride the jetstream
climbing onward
the hum of the engines
propelling my dreams in their flight

I’m guided by the homing instinct
on a mission through the unknown
a fiercely longing, strong, insistent,
intuition pilots me home
