Soon As I Get Home Tour

"I am so amazed by the things that I see here..."

"Soon As I Get Home" is a song from The Wiz, which Dorothy Gale sings after meeting the Munchkins and the Good Witch of the North Addapearle. In the play, Dorothy performs this number while walking alone on the Yellow Brick Road. In the movie and The Wiz Live!, she performs it while trying to find the Yellow Brick Road.

"Soon As I Get Home" lyrics

There's a feeling here inside
That I cannot hide
And I know I've tried
But it's turning me around
I'm not sure that I'm aware
If I'm up or down
Or here or there
I need both feet on the ground

Why do I feel like I'm drowning
When there is plenty of air?
Why do I feel like frowning?
I think the feeling is fear.

Here I am in a different place
In a different time
In this time and space
But I don't want to be here
I was told I must see the Wiz
But i don't know what a wizard is
I just hope the Wiz is there

Maybe I'm just going crazy
Letting myself get uptight
I'm acting just like a baby
But I'm gonna be alright

Soon as I get home
Soon as I get home
Soon as I get home

In a different place
In a different time
Different people around me
I would like to know of that different world
And how different they find me

And just what's a Wiz
Is he big, will he scare me?
If I ask to leave
Will the Wiz even hear me?
How will I know then
If I'll ever get home again?

Here I am alone
Though it feels the same
I don't know where I'm going
I'm here on my own
And it's not a game
And a strange wind is blowing

I am so amazed
At the things that I see here
I just don't want to be afraid
I just don't want to be here
In my mind this is clear
What am I doing here?

I wish I was home
