We say it's okay and to leave it alone
But I want you to notice this case isn't closed
Doors are open, the lights are left on
And there's never a night I sleep
With the dreams that I'd have if you never decided, decided to leave
Decided, decided to leave

There's never an ounce that I breathe
Without thinking about who I could have been with you
There's never an ounce that I breathe
Without thinking about who I could have been if you didn't leave

The phones been patient to hear your call, but you never touched the dial
You never touched the dial and now I know
There's someone I wish walked through these halls
But you'll never take the chance to come home
So come home

We say we can learn from this
But I just don't know what to do without you anymore, anymore
Your absence is taking its toll on me
What I should believe, I just can't believe

There's never an ounce that I breathe
Without thinking about who I could have been with you
There's never an ounce that I breathe
Without thinking about who I could have been if you didn't leave

The phones been patient to hear your call, but you never touched the dial
You'll never touch the dial and now I know
There's someone I wish walked through these halls
But you'll never take the chance to come home
So come home

You say it isn't my fault so I steer away
I put off the pain for another day
Did you think it wouldn't be tough? 8 years were never enough
I'll wait for you
If you never change I will be okay
But I'll still stay up for you
Just in case you make the time for the right move

The phones been patient to hear your call, but you never touched the dial
You never touched the dial and now I know
There's someone I wish walked through these halls
But you'll never take the chance to come home
So come home

There's someone I wish walked through these halls, but you never touched the dial
You'll never touch the dial and now I know
The phones been patient to hear your call,
But you never take the chance to come home
And you'll never take the chance to come home
Just come home

    Song Meaningamazing song.

    for the meaning, i believe it is about her father leaving her after only 8 years "Did you think it wouldn't be tough? 8 years were never enough", and then the absence he has left is noticeable "There's someone I wish walked through these halls" and impacting on her life "There's never an ounce that I breathe,Without thinking about who I could have been with you, There's never an ounce that I breathe
    Without thinking about who I could have been if you didn't leave."

    hope that was accurate enough, first time commenting on here so yeah, hope you all can agree with me :)

    again, amazing band, amazing song.

    General CommentI figure it's about a guy and a girl, rather than her father..
    It just has that kind of sensitivity about it..

    A guy walked out on his wife? or girlfriend of 8 years..and she's waiting for him still.

    <3 eyes set to kill.

    General CommentFrom their website (estkrock.com/):


    "Coming Home" is an open letter to her father who abandoned her at an early age.
