Comin’ Home

***I am unsure of the date I wrote this on so am copywriting it for today. It was my first attempt at a song***

Tears drip down my cheeks

as I lean against the window

Gazin’ out the rain spattered pane

seein’ my past comin’ again.

Chorus:

I left you behind, I ran away

I left you behind, at home you did stay

I left you behind

A foolish mistake

I left you behind and still my heart aches.

 

I sought sunshine

I found pain

I sought laughter, never gained

I sought to escape the life I had

only to discover it weren’t so bad.

Chorus:

 

Locked within a prison of glass

One I made I could not crack

choices I regret, prices I had to pay

I wish that I could take it all back

I wish I could refuse this track.

Chorus:

 

Now I am comin’ home

tell me it’s not too late

I’m comin’ home

baby here’s the date

I’m comin’ home to a heart that’s true

I’m comin’ home to get my due.
