Come Back Home

You never talk about it
You never say a word
If you could live without it
I'd like to think you would

Living after midnight
Has left you less than upright
And I know you would not be writing
Except to say you've been frightened

It's really not my place to say
But it hurts to watch you slip away

Talking for the first time
Since you left here for the front line
And I know you would not be calling
Except to say you've been falling

You thought you'd find a place to shine
But you were left behind the times

Too much time in the self-help section
But you never found your life's direction

Big city lights shine so bright
Big city lights shine so bright
Big city lights shine so bright

If the west coast let you down
There's more to life than just one town
If California left you cold
It's not too late to come back home
