LINCOLN CROCKETT: Music

When Will You Come Home

(LINCOLN CROCKETT)
September 21, 2007
I sent a note, I called your phone
You been gone all day, but where I am is far from home

It isn’t like, I’m all alone
But the wind gets in, through the cracks you know

I wanna hear, a doorbell ring
Your fingers on my shoulders and your voice about to sing

I am Alive, and all I want, is to know
When will you come home

You been gone, a month or more
I been combing through your closets, I been goin’ through your drawers

I never noticed, your smell before
How it lingers so long after you have walked out of that door

and every night, I hold you close
A pillow ain’t the same thing, but I’ve got to make the most

I am In Love, and all I want, is to know
When will you come home

Thought it would be plain enough but I swear I cannot see
How it is you’re such a part of every part of me
I’ll drop all my cigarettes and I’ll drop all my booze
Now that I’ve got nothin’ left, I’ve nothin’ left to loose

I can meet you at the airport [I’ll take a cab]
I’ll meet you at the train [we’ll ride in back]
I can meet you any place, no need to explain
We can be lovers [I’ve got you on my mind]
We can be friends [I’ve got your heart in mine]
We can be partners in a game of chance I know will never end

So give me no more explanations and give me no more lies
Nothing Seems to satisfy like looking in your eyes

I have dined on caviar and run a thousand mile
But nothing seems to satisfy like listening to you smile

I am In Love, and all I want, is to know
When will you come home
