Basically nothin' has changed
She explained
Were so happy you're home again
You take the winter
Back on your feet
Your bed is bein' made
And your father washed the sheets for you

So we talked a while
About all my wars
The smiles worse than I told you so
She said to wash up and get to bed
I knew the freedom I had learned
I'd learned quickly to forget

And nobody understands
And nobody seems to care
'Bout the compromise of a man
Comin' home after five long years
Givin' up after five long years

Unpack my bags in the livin' room
Smell the last of her sweet perfume
Came from the girl that went with the world that I traded in today
Just to live a safer way

And nobody understands
And nobody seems to care
'Bout the compromise of a man
Comin' home after five long years
Givin' up after five long years

She says your always welcome here
You'll never be alone
Perhaps that's now my greatest fear
I'll always call this home
This home
