From the recording Make It Home
This fading photograph,
The memory is all I have
Those sun-filled days we had before.
Recall your smiling face.
The paradise of your embrace.
Feels like I’m seventeen once more.
Carefree and foolish then,
I thought this love would never end.
Took things for granted far too long.
Now that I’ve been away,
I crave the warmth of yesterday.
I’m not too proud to say I’m wrong.
I wanna go back again.
I’d rather get on track again
Than to face another night alone.
You’ve always been dear to me.
You’re makin’ it clear to see
That I really wanna Make It Home.
Broke off our love affair
To see what I could find out there.
Thought greener pastures lay in store.
I found out on my own
The price you pay to be alone.
I had my freedom, but what for?
I did not understand.
Without you, I was half a man,
Lost in a web of self-deceit.
Now, by myself, I know
I’ve gone as far as I can go.
I need your love to be complete.
When you were by my side,
My ego filled up with pride
On my knees I confess.
Look past my carelessness
