I travelled to a country I’d never been before
The sweet intoxication led me to an open door

It weakened my defences: the sights, the smell, the taste
Like a rocket to my senses leaving me feeling out of place

I wish I knew where home was
I wish I knew the way
I wish I knew where home was

He was like no other lover and courted easily
There were worlds to be discovered as long as he was free

And so we made our Eden as if it was for real
But the apple stayed uneaten – that was the deal

I wish I knew where home was
I wish I knew the way
I wish I knew where home was

Still I long for all the comforts that I have known
The ones that fit me like a glove
But I cannot find my way back home
I’m a stranger, a stranger in love

The drummers keep on drumming (I wish I knew where home was)
And the tunes weave on through the night (I wish I knew the way)
The garden looks most lovely by the fairy lantern light

The wind blows around my shoulders, I go searching for a chair
I can’t remember leaving but I am no longer there
