Coming Home

For me it's a glance and the smile on your face the touch of your hands,
And an honest embrace
For where I lay it's you I keep,
This changing world I fall asleep
With you all I know is I'm coming home,
Coming home
-Home by Vanessa Carlton

Coming Home

I became deaf with too much noise
I became tired of taking shots
I became annoyed with the clutters
I became confused with myself

Why would I ask for more than that
when this is all I've got
and it was too much
As I carry the load
It was heavy
I hurt my back.

Maybe, I'm the one who's difficult
the one who's sick
the one who's weird
But whenever I'm with them
Nothing else is real
I know they're not evil
nor I am a saint
But I should follow what I feel
Before my true self faints

Why would I pretend to be somebody else
Why should I push myself like hell
to fit with theirs

Why would I force myself to someone
who has wounded me first
and worsened my thirst
for love
oh, for love
like I'm holding back the pain forever
like I'm begging for love
Should I beg for love
Should I ask?
What would I get?
It was too much.
As I carry the load
It was heavy
I hurt my back.

I was a fool to maintain a poise
I was ambitious for being vain
I was tricked to not see what really matters
I was stupid for making myself believe
That the damsel in distress has found her prince
and her fairy tale has a happy ending
a fairy tale has always a happy ending
But I confused fantasy with myself
I confused fantasy with myself

Expectations are bound for disappointment
Saying goodbye is the greatest resentment
for a person who always holds a
beautiful sentiment

Here I am in the middle of the night
It's okay to write using a flashlight
The feeling's always right
The feeling's always right

Because I'm always coming home
I'm always coming home
Everytime I write
Everytime I write

I'm always coming home
to my pen and paper
to silence where God is forever
to solitude where I piece myself
back together

I became deaf with too much noise
I became tired of taking shots
I became annoyed with with the clutters
I became confused with myself--

were but a memory
inside of me.
The heavy load that I carried
a long gone memory that was burried
the music is cradling me
and the soft embrace of my mommy
I am already sleepy,
I am happy.
I am already sleepy.
I am, happy.
