I Don’t Want To Go Home Anymore

I Don’t Want To Go Home Anymore
(Flannery)

Doesn’t feel like it should
I would if I could
something’s in the way
don’t know what to say
to the strangers on the street
fear mixed with conceit
welcome mat by the door
I don’t want to go home anymore

Water over the bridge
kept in by the ridge
surrounded on all sides
let the river decide
kids they come and go
just as she flows
debris lines the shore
I don’t want to go home anymore

I don’t want to go home
she might follow me there
heroin eyes and whispered lies
and the thousand yard stare

Ghosts in the wind
and those who have sinned
and could never forgive
forced to relive
the love that they lost
and just what it cost
for their own private war
I don’t want to go home anymore

I don’t want to go home
she might follow me there
heroin eyes and whispered lies
and the thousand yard stare

Doesn’t feel like it should
I would if I could
something’s in the way
don’t know what to say
to the strangers on the street
fear mixed with conceit
welcome mat by the door
I don’t want to go home anymore
