I Don't Wanna Go Home

Written by Eric Woolfson and Alan Parsons

Go back home you damn fool

Surely you know you can't win

You should never have come near this place

You should have stayed on the outside, Lookin' in


It's too late to turn back

Nobody asked you to try

But they blinded you with diamonds

And all the money that money can buy


And I'm so afraid of being on my own

But I don't wanna go home


You can't win you damn fool

You drank all the wine from the cup

And your painted lady's gone now

And you're way back on the downside, Lookin' up


You can't catch the monkey on your back

Nobody asked you to try

But for every heart they held a spade

And you lost more than money can buy


And I'm so afraid of being on my own

But I don't wanna go home


I'm like a washed up rag

Tattered and torn

I wish I'd never been born


And I'm so afraid of being on my own

But I don't wanna go home


I'm like a down and out just blowin' my horn

Oh I don't wanna go home


I'm like a washed up rag

Tattered and torn

Oh I don't wanna go home
