  • 03:14 Lyrics Come Home

    Come Home       

     

    Verse 1

    You been gone for way too long now

    You left us all by ourselves

    We need you back to make sense of the world

    So come home (come home), come home (come home), come home

     

    Verse 2

    You left us for a crazy con man

    He lied to steal your heart

    It’s time to come back from that sinister sap

    So come home (come home), come home (come home), come home

     

    Chorus

    Apple pie waiting just for you

    Scrape that guff off your shoes

    Gotta shed that orange dome

    So come home (come home), come home (come home), come home 

     

     

    Bridge

    Hey, you’re America (America)

    You’re the land of the free

    Hey, you’re America (America)

    It’s time to come back to me

     

     

    Verse 3

    Where you went it’s just not right

    It’s awful and it’s cruel

    You’re ready to make a big left turn

    And come home (come home), come home (come home), come home 

     

    Verse 4

    Time to get back to Sea to Shining Sea

    Time to be great again

    Come surf on a big blue wave

    And come home (come home), come home (come home), come home 

     

    Chorus

    A rainbow is waiting just for you

    Scrape that guff off your shoes

    Gotta shed that orange dome

    So come home (come home), come home (come home), come home 

    Come home (come home), come home (come home), come home
