Home Is Starting to Feel Like You – Written Monday 25th June 2001 (Aged 26)

Home Is Starting to Feel Like You

faraway from home,
coming back soon
but the word home
does not seem so important
because without you,
i am going to be alone
counting the days
and the weeks till you are there
and i know we’re both,
collecting up the clich├ęs
and that,
we have a long way to go
but i will show you my commitment
i will put on a show
because when i am with you
i do not want to go
and as time,
gathers up its belongings
home starts to feel you
