lyrics

I know it must be unattractive
to see me so discomposed
But darling I must admit that
It hurts to be so alone
And I’ve learned so much without you
But I didn’t ask to know
And I know I’m becoming a bigger person
But it’s kind of painful to grow

Can’t you come home for a little while?
I know adventure is in your soul
But while you’re out there living up life
All I’m left with is this hole

My dear you left me defenseless
Against the memories I have stored
But they remind me of a purpose
And what it is I’m moving toward
And in the quiet moments
When I wish that you could call
Nostalgia keeps me company
Keeps me back against the wall

Can’t you come home for a little while?
I know adventure is in your soul
But while you’re out there living up life
All I’m left with is this hole

They say the best things in life come to those who wait
But I am not the type to sit and wait for fate
There is a certain fatal beauty in a heart that loves
A kind of rare, perfect credence in approval from above

Can’t you come home for a little while?
I know adventure is in your soul
But while you’re out there living up life
All I’m left with is a hole
