Come Back Home
written by John Hiatt

You said you had to go and get your life together
I didn't know you had to go it alone
I guess we all have dreams floatin' on feathers
I wish you'd come back home

Rugs pulled out and all the curtains have fallen
Been transported to the twilight zone
I don't even have a number I could be callin'
I wish you'd come back home

[Chorus]:
I wish you'd come back home
Back where you belong
I know that you're out there
Cold and holed up somewhere
I take back every song
All that I've done wrong
I wish that you'd come home to me

Chorus repeated

Winter in my mind, my feelings all frozen
Still that river's rollin' over the stones
Won't be long before the highways start closin'
I wish you'd come back home

I wish you'd come back home
Wish you'd come back home
I wish you'd come back home
