Average Coming Home
 
    

Just an average coming home
Not the ticker tape you'd hoped
Not like generations past,
Not the glory not a chance

When you stepped right off that motorcar,
Thought you were the nation's star
really just an average coming home

See the crowds roll through the streets
All so into their own needs
Seems so strange to be at home
Modern hero quite alone

When you stepped right off that motorcar
Thought you were some superstar
Really just an average coming home
When you stepped right off that motor car
Seeing where you really are
REALLY JUST AN AVERAGE COMING HOME
An average coming home

Was a day a man had means
clear and sparkling beliefs
Now the air is kind of thick
So does a purple heart still tick

When you stepped right off that motorcar
Thought you were the nation's star
Really just an average coming home
When you stepped right off that motor car
Seeing where you really are
REALLY JUST AN AVERAGE COMING HOME
An average coming home

Repeat chorus
