about

This song encapsulates the frustration I was feeling whilst I was busking in Australia. It talks about the moment I met 'honey bee' a lady of the night from the Brisbane underground who unknowingly showed me just how much i wanted to find my way home.

lyrics

It's just me and the traffic lights out here tonight.. but I can't close my eyes because I know they're all watching me.

Can I borrow your ears for just a moment? because right now it feels like i'm a deer caught in the headlights.

She said "talk to me boy, have you got something to sell? why don't you put down your guitar and i'll take you to hell?"

I said "hold on, listen honey bee.. I can't sell you my soul because i'm not really free. I'm just trying to get home."

Well, she rolled up her sleeves and showed me her arms and I saw the scars from the depths of her past.

She robbed me blind as she stared me in the eyes, I didn't know my innocence had gone until the morning light.

I said "hold on, listen honey bee.. I can't sell you my soul because i'm not really free. I'm just trying to get home."

I'm not worth it, so don't waste your time on me.
I don't deserve this, so open your eyes and see.

I'm just trying to get home.

I'm just trying to get home.
