John Mayer – Home Life lyrics

I think I'm gonna stay home

Have myself a home life

Sitting in the slow-mo

And listening to the daylight

I am not a nomad

I am not a rocket man

I was born a house cat

By the sleight of my mother's hand

I think I'm gonna stay home

I want to live in the center of a circle

I want to live on the side of a square

I used to be in my M-Z now

You'll never find me 'cause my name isn't there

Home life

Been holding out for the homelife

My whole life

I want to see the end game

I wanna learn her last name

Finish on a Friday

And sit in traffic on the highway

See, I refuse to believe

That my life's gonna be

Just some string of incompletes

Never to lead me to anything remotely close to a home life

Been holding out for the home life

My whole life

I can tell you this much

I will marry just once

And if it doesn't work out

I'll give her half of my stuff

It's fine with me

We said eternity

I will go to my grave

With the life that I gave

Not just a melody line on a radio wave

It dissipates

And soon evaporates

But home life doesn't change

I want to live in the center of a circle

I want to live on the side of a square

I'd love to walk to where we both can talk

But I've got to leave it 'cause my ride is here

Home life

You take the home life

You keep the home life

I'll come back for the home life I promise

Home life I promise


Home life

Home life
