The person this is about is...fuck it. I can't tell her now, can I?
I left my mind in the bottom of a lake somewhere,
And I've been trying hard to find it but it's too far gone,
See, I searched high and low in every place,
Even checked out up in space,
But I ain't found nothing but these sad songs,
Until one day I realized, that right in front of my two eyes,
I had the answer to my prayers in big old flashing neon lights,
All the times I walked away to try and figure what was wrong,
I couldn't see it, what I needed was right here with me all along,
Home, let me come Home,
Home is wherever I'm with you.
And that's just how you make me feel,
Like I've got somewhere I can go, like I'm not alone,
I didn't know it when I met you, you would change me for the better,
And now no longer will I have to roam,
This is sweet without the bitter, standing in a mighty river,
Swept away, you cured my pain, and your touch, it makes me shiver,
See you brought me back alive, all the pain, I leave behind,
Now my heart's been lit on fire, and it burns for you and I...
