lyrics

Summer’s end is around the bend just flying
The swimming suits are on the line just drying
I’ll meet you there per our conversation
I hope I didn’t ruin your whole vacation

Well, you never know how far from home you’re feeling
Until you’ve watched the shadows cross the ceiling
Well, I don’t know but I can see it snowing
In your car the windows are wide open

Just come on home
Come on home
No, you don’t have to be alone
Just come on home

Valentines break hearts and minds
At random
That old Easter egg ain’t got a leg
To stand on
Well I can see that you can’t win for trying
And New Year’s Eve is bound to
Leave you crying

Come on home
Come on home
No, you don’t have to be alone
Just come on home

The moon and stars hang out in bars
Just talkin’
I still love that picture of us walkin’
Just like that old house
We thought was haunted
Summer’s end came faster than we wanted

Come on home
Come on home
No, you don’t have to be alone
Come on home

Come on home
You don’t have to be alone
Just come on home
