Please, will you wake up?
Open your eyes
It's the first day of a new light
You'll see
Cotton in the windows
Pollen as the wind blows
It's the first day of a new life with me

Soft as your skin
Why is it so hard to let me in?
You're the one I wanna be

Why do you turn away?
You were the one
Who asked me to stay
You were my home
You were my home
You were my home

Trailing the train rails
Blowing where the wind blows
You're young
You are wild
You are free

Sleeping by the green lake
Every breath is at stake
And you're the one I wanna be

How did you forget my face?
Oh, how did you forget my name
When you were my hope?
You were my home
You were my home

You were my home
You were my home
You were my love
You were my love

Trailing the train rails
Blowing where the wind blows
You're young
You are wild
You are free

    General Commentthis song should have been included on the goodbye blues main cd.

    greta's vocals are so powerful and the melody is enchanting
    such an amazing song

    General CommentI think the two bonus tracks weren't included in the main cd because if you listen to the album all the way through, it's a story about some one falling for a guy who ends up only using her, and then at the end he regrets it (Hospital Bed Crawl). If you listen all the songs intertwine like that. But the 2 bonus songs don't exactly fit the story, as amazing as they are.

    General Commentit doesn't fit? seems like this guy just used her too, he liked her then discarded of her and she was heartbroken because she really felt something. was he not ready to get close to her?

    sad, really.

    General CommentI think this song is my favorite off the CD; a shame it's a bonus song, really.
    Greta's voice has really matured since the last album, she's come into her own. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely loved the last two, but you never heard such vocals as in the part
    "You were my love
    You were my love."

    This song is obviously about someone hurt and confused about someone leaving them, especially when it seemed like they wanted them, too:
    "Why do you turn away?
    You were the one
    Who asked me to stay"

    General Commentthis song reminds me of The Luxe series, for some reason, it reminds me of Liz and Will. even though it doesn't make much sense that it does.

    General CommentInstead of "caught in the windows, calling as the wind blows" it should be "cotton at the windows, pollen as the wind blows."
