lyrics

my home

i keep a vigil while you sleep
for every ten words that i say
there’s one that you keep hanging
on the tip of your tongue

i worry just as you forget
you clear you mind
i’m left behind

i drop the ball every night
then throw the windows open
at the first sign of daylight

this is how the story goes
the coffee’s on
it’s black and white
heaven only knows
but the bottom line is
you are my home

i cry to decide
you toss a coin into the air
it never lands
it only hangs there laughing
saying make sense of this one

this is how it goes
chasing you around
i’m lost and found
heaven only knows
but the bottom line is
you are my home

here we are digging out of the trenches
i saw my only falling star
the night we walked and fell so hard

i must have thrown away the map
i feel around for the familiar
your finger tips
on my lips
say just tonight -- don’t try
to make sense of this one

this is how it goes
the coffee’s on it’s black and white
we open and we close
it’s the mystery
the company
heaven only knows.....
but the bottom line is
you are my home
