Come Home

lyrics

Oh, heavy my eyes,
Lord, I am weary now;
I try hard to lay me down,
I can't stay, something's keeping me awake
Moving with your heavy grace, I become the tidal wave,
Bone deep.
One kiss from your ashen tongue,
And I cry out from cracking lungs,
Watch you fade, into dreams but I will stay,
I would give my whole damn day to watch you build your cabaret.

I would love you forever
I’d give you all you need
I’d reach up from the ground to keep your sun from going down,
But I’m still trying to believe
That nothing is once in a lifetime,
Or you are not meant for me,
But I cannot deny that every time I shut my eyes
Yours is the face I see.
So come home my queen.
Come home my queen x3
Oh come home to me.

And your touch,
It moves me like heavy rain.
It makes me a hurricane,
Hand grenade, still the band to your parade,
Hotter than a summer's day, even through this shade,
I pray for more,
To a God I have never known,
Saying stars don't you leave me low,
Call me home, whisper through the radio;
My heart is just an empty throne, I die each moment I'm alone.

I would love you forever,
I’d give you all you need,
I’d reach up from the ground to keep your sun from going down,
But I’m still trying to believe
That this is not once in a lifetime,
Or you are not meant for me,
But I cannot deny that every time I shut my eyes
Yours is the face I see.
So come home my queen.

Come home my queen x3 (all I never wanted)
Oh come home to me.
