I've been looking through the glass
I can barely see, it's too fogged up
Between the trees, the cold has taken all the leaves
Soon I'll watch another branch fall off

Would you believe I'm not just killing time?
I've got a lot of things to do, yeah

We won't stay here too long, but well be here again
And don't forget, we know the way back home
We won't stay here too long, but well be here again

I've been slipping through the cracks
When I show up without my bed, they'll have my back
I'll keep warm in the mitten state
I got more brothers across the lake
And the Chicago city water helps me sing
Home is where the hardest goodbyes are
My heart is in everywhere I've been

We won't stay here too long, but well be here again
And don't forget, we know the way back home
We won't stay here too long, but well be here again

Thank you my friends, you have been far too kind
When we set sail, we are not leaving you behind
I'm not leaving this behind
