You can turn back the tide of the cold tears from your eyes,
The pangs of wounded pride if you hold me.
Did someone do you wrong yeah,
Good lovin's good as gone.
Maybe you ain't as strong as you wanna be.

It's alright if you don't wanna go home.
It's alright if you don't wanna be alone.
It's alright if you don't wanna go home.
I understand.

Nothin' stays if it's gotta go now.
You can't get water from a stone now.
Sometimes you've got to think about
The things you're gonna love.
You can point the finger at him.
You can say you've suffered for your sins.
Somehow it never was, never was good enough.


When the morning comes and you put yourself together
To face another day.
And when the day is done and you ain't feelin' better
You come walkin' my way.

Now that you're doing alright,
You're pretty much outta sight.
I don't see you knockin' 'round my door anymore.
I'm glad to hear you're doing well,
But I know that time will tell.
Only when you're broken down, is that what friends are for?
It's alright if you just wanna go home.
It's alright if you just wanna be alone.
It's alright if you just wanna go home.
I understand.
