lyrics

You sort of left in a hurry
Maybe you left something behind
We were hoping you were happy
Maybe you had what you went to find
But if you find you just can't phone
Those voices just too hard to hear
Well I'm sending you this message
I hope it rings through loud and clear

You can be afraid of the wild tornado
You can live in fear of the thieves that roam
You can be afraid of heights and airplanes
But don't you be afraid to come home
Don't you be afraid to come home

Perhaps with words I have been careless
Did I touch your tender scar?
Did you think that it would matter?
Well I know exactly who you are
You know it's fashioned in the bargain
A love once bought, shall not be sold
You can take away your person
But this gem I'll always hold

The door is always open
The fire in the hearth
I hear the doorknob turning
But it's just the beating of my heart

All your dread is wasted worry
Of what I may or may not say
Though unspeakable your burden
Don't you think I love you anyway?
But if you find you just can't phone
Those voices just too hard to hear
Well I'm sending you this message
I hope it rings through loud and clear
