You Can Always Come Home

Here are the lyrics to what I’m working on lately.  I’m almost done… please leave comments about words/phrases you’d change.  I like it, but I’m still working on it to make it better.  The (. . .) is just my way of indenting without having to use html.  The words in the (    ) are other choices for the words right before them.  The tune and chords lean more than a little in the country direction.  But I guess a folksinger can make it work!

1. The ice in your eyes froze my tears
. . . before they could fall
Each step echoed deep in my heart
. . .as you walked down the hall
I watched you leave
. . .through the frost on the windowpane
I’m breathing a prayer you heard what I’m trying to say

PreCh:
When you’re out in the cold
with no place to go, you can always

Chorus:
Come home
Where there’s room at the table
. . .and not much has changed
. . .since I stood by your cradle
I hope that you know
You can always come home

2. I heard a rumor
. . .it’s not working out how (like) you planned
Chasing your dream down the road
. . .no one’s watching your back
I think  you’re aching
. . .for someone  to hold you tight
And I hope you know that I’m praying for you tonight

PreCh:
When you’re out all alone
with no place to go, you can always

Chorus:
Come home
Where there’s room at the table
. . .and not much has changed
. . .since I stood by your cradle
I hope you still know
You can always come home

Instrumental

No need for pretending
. . .that’s not what I’m looking for
I’ll be on my knees
. . .till I see you walk through the door

PreCh:
When you’re so far from home
with no place to go, you can always

Chorus:
Come home
Where there’s room at the table
. . .and not much has changed
. . .since I stood by your cradle
I hope that you know
You can always come home
