Going Home

This song is by Jeff Wayne and appears on the album Jeff Wayne's Musical Version Of Spartacus (1992).

Palene: For a year we fought and still the Romans couldn't tame us. Whatever we suffered, whatever lay ahead, was worth that precious gift of freedom, even if only for one brief moment. Spartacus and Crixus were our leaders, but a hundred thousand lives were staked on the same cause. The cause of freedom. The dream of home.

Spartacus' Army:
In the wind I can hear,
Voices calling me near,
I'm going home, I'm going home, I'm going home

He's going home,
She's going home,
We're going home.
Home at last.

At last! (spoken)

In my dreams l can see,
Someone beckoning me,
I'm going home,
I'm going home,
I'm going home.

He's going home,
She's going home,
We're going home.
Home at last


At last! (spoken)

Palene:
Some of our people - slaves from birth - had never known freedom. But even my beloved Spartacus and I, who had grown up free, had almost forgotten how it felt.
Stolen from us by the Romans, it came back to us then like a birth-right, or a long-lost love.

Where the air is sweeter,

And the river rolls on into a silver sea,
There's a fire burning,
Somewhere in a distant land,
And I'm finally returning,

Back home,
Where I long to be,
Where I know I've gotta go because it's calling me,
Home,
Where I long to see,
All the people and the places that are part of me,
I'm going home, I'm going home,
I'm going home, I'm going home,

Where the skies are clearer,

Getting nearer to home with every step l take,
Heading for my own land,
I am following my heart,
And I'm gonna be my own man

Back home,
Where I long to be,
Where I know I've gotta go because it's calling me,
Home,
Where I long to see,
All the people and the places that are part of me,
I'm going home, I'm going home,
I'm going home, I'm going home.

Gonna reach a world I never thought I'd see,
And a better life is waiting there for me,

In the arms of someone,

Who will care for me,
When my body's weary,
She'll make me feel complete,

Healing me with her sweet love,

Her sweet love.

Where the stars shine brighter,

Been a fighter too long to simply give up now,
So it's not surprisin',
Knowing that my sights are set,
Somewhere on the far horizon,

Back home,
Home I'm-a-coming, coming,
Home I'm-a-coming,
Home I'm-a-coming, coming,
Home I'm-a-coming,
Home I'm-a-coming, coming,
Home I'm-a-coming,
Back home,
Where I long to be,
Where l know I've gotta go because its calling me,
Home! Where I long to see,
All the people and the places that are part of me,
I'm going home, I'm going home,
I'm going home, I'm going home.

Palene: How long could it last? My dreams returned and robbed my nights of sleep. Dreams of armies marching from Rome against us. I told no one what I dreamed. I kept the fearful future to myself. Let the Gods decide our destiny, not me.

In the wind I can hear,
Voices calling me near,
I'm going home, I'm going home, I'm going home.

He's going home,
She's going home,
We're going home.
Home at last.

At last! (spoken)
