Coming Home 03:05
Right then, I’ll leave this lot here Don’t bother getting up, will you? Sort meself out, shall I? Get me own tea an’ all? Not like it took hours to get home Least the dog said hello What’s that you’re watching? Come on, shift over Give us one of them You not eating all that anyway Is that my beer you got there? It is? Give it here then Yeah, I will put me feet up, thank you I’ll just rest me eyes for a bit Don’t mind me, I’m still listening Coming home, coming home Coming home, coming home Coming home, coming home
Dinner’s made. So they’ll dock my pay At least it’s not a takeaway Bad again? Well, I’ll get some wine Your day was as rough as mine Was a time we could crack a smile But we knew, it just took a while To say that we cannot win with Our hopes so low, we’re giving in If we can pretend When we both get home We can talk like when This was yet to come Yeah, it’s hard and it won’t end soon Dealt this hand, see it through We hold each other, then We know tomorrow also ends We’ll see, one day We’ll see, one day We’ll see, one day
I came back the long way round Need a while to settle down Both got stories we can share I should start, I don’t know where Chorus Been making my way Doing what I do Thinking ‘bout me Remembering you Been way up/cut up/set up/way up Been way down/cut down/set down/way down Been too far The long way round How is it I’ve come to fear The look of love become a stare Could turn out that being away Might be where I have to stay Absence makes the heart grow empty Miles wear out my memories I know that you tried to tell me Took the long way round to see A day or two is all we need To understand what we are feeling A day or two, we could be sure of Finding one another’s love Chorus x 2


This is a collection of three songs about coming home - being ignored, being needed and being reassured.
