"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."
~ Andre Kertesz

Going Home Lyrics
Artist(Band):The Rolling Stones Review The Song (M. Jagger/K. Richards)

Spendin' too much time away
I can't stand another day
Maybe you think I've seen the world
But I'd rather see my girl

I'm goin' home, I'm goin' home
I'm goin' home, I'm goin' home
I'm goin' home, bome, bome, bome-bome-bome,
Home, bome, bome, bome, back home
Yes, I am

All those letters ev'ry day
Maybe alright in their way
But I'd love to see your face
When I get home in their place

I'm goin' home, I'm goin' home
I'm goin' home, I'm goin' home
I'm goin' home, bome, bome, bome-bome-bome,
Home, bome, bome, bome, back home
Yes, I am

I'm goin' home, I'm goin' home
I'm goin' home, I'm goin' home
I'm goin' home, bome, bome, bome-bome-bome,
Home, bome, bome, bome, back home
Yes, I will

When you're three thousand miles away
I just never sleep the same
If I packed my things right now
I could be home in seven hours

I'm goin' home, I'm goin' home
I'm goin' home, I'm goin' home
I'm goin' home, bome, bome, bome-bome-bome,
Home, bome, bome, bome, back home

Yes, I will
Yes, I will
See my baby, see my baby
I wanna see my girl
I just can't wait, I just can't wait
I just can't wait, I just can't wait

I just can't wait, I just can't wait
I just can't wait, I just can't wait

I just can't wait
I'll see my baby
She'll make me feel alright

Gotta see my baby
She'll make me feel so good
She'll make me feel allright
Yes she does
In the middle of the night
So good ti ti tight

Feel allright, come on baby
I'm gonna get home babe
I feel allright
I'm lookin' for my baby
I'm gonna go in the early morning
I'm gonna catch that plane
Now it won't be long, I say
Listen to me

Long time since I've seen my baby
Yes it is
It's such a long long time
Yes it is, I feel allright
I'm gonna see my baby, one more time
I get home, I gotta get home
I wanna see my darling

I wanna make sweet sweet love
In the middle of the night
Early in the morning
In the midnight hour
She'll make me feel so good
She'll make me feel allright

When she touch my hands
And that's all I gotta say
Cause I'm gonna pack my bags
I wanna see you baby
See your face
Your pretty little smile
Your pretty clothes
Hear you talk
Come on

I'm comin' home
I'll see my baby
I'm goin' home
I'm gettin' out
To see your face
Makin' love to you baby
Yes it makes me feel so good
I feel so good inside

Touch me one more time
Come on little girl
You may look sweet
But I know you ain't
I know you ain't
