“Tones of Home” by Blind Melon

“What do you think they would say if I stood up, and I walked away?”

What do you think they would say
If I stood up, and I walked away?
Nobody here really understands me
And so I wave goodbye, I’m fine
I’m fine

Tones of home

Said, you don’t like the way I’m living (You don’t like me)

And there’s a canopy of greed holdin’ me down

Tones of home

Said, you don’t like the way I’m living.
Tones of home, tones of home
And so I wave goodbye
I’m flyin’
And I’m flyin’ home
Home, home, home

See, I’m so high to you, but don’t fade away, oh yeah
I said, you’re on your own
Your mom and daddy said
That you sister said
And you brother’s saying (what’d your brother say?)
Is saying everybody (everybody)
Is saying everybody
Is saying I-I-I-I gotta go!

All my friends patronize me
They say “Yo, hey, boy! Have you found what you’re looking for?”
It seems they don’t really know me
‘Cause it’s here
An’ it’s what they can’t see

Tones of home

Said, you don’t like the way I’m living .
Tones of home, tones of home
And so I wave goodbye
I’m flyin’
And I’m flyin’ home
Home, home, home

CPE

I'm routinely overestimated.
