The Fanboys – Coming Home lyrics

She grew tired of the quiet life, wanted to branch out a bit
Started to talk about the big city west, try her luck out there
Wanted her name in the bright lights, knew she'd become a star
This dream would become reality, at least in her heart

I called her up before she left, asked her not to go
When I knew she wouldn't change her mind, said
"when are you coming home, yeah when are you coming home"

She was gone away, left me lost without my girl, I didn't want to lose her
To this other world

Got a card from her some weeks later, wrote that all was going well
Would be just a matter of time, before her first break

She had to live in just one room, but she'd soon be out of there
Fame was calling out to her, she said
"I won't be coming home, yeah I won't be coming home"

But as the bright lights faded, and her dreams fell apart, it's not how she
Planned it at the start

Got a call from her just the other day, she was crying as she spoke
Her voice was shaking, all messed up, told me she was broke

Said how things hadn't worked out, she missed me and wanted to leave
Gonna buy a ticket on her credit card, said
"I am coming home, yeah I am coming home"

She would be home, in just 24 hours, and I will hold her again

Told her I'd be there, to pick her up from her bus
Got the details off of her and I said,
"I'm so glad you're coming home, yeah I'm so glad you're coming home,
You're finally coming home, so glad you made it home
