Home By Christmas

You left here after midnight After we had our big fight Heard the taxi in the driveway But I never thought you’d leave forever

I keep hoping that you’ll be home by Christmas Or maybe it’ll be another year before you miss us One day I’m sure you’ll come over the horizon With stories on your lips and pictures I your eyes

Got a package full of Easter From somewhere in Peru No address for the sender, but I knew it came from you Got a postcard on my birthday You kept talking about the moon Got a letter from California Said you send another when you could


Got a voicemail from Australia Said you’d found a home at last And you had a lover waiting So you had to make it fast You said it’s springtime where I am I know it’s Autumn where you are We’re just the same but different And we can only be who we are
