"Drifter" as written by Amie Michel Miriello and Jeff Cohen....
It's not in the way I can sleep when you're by my side
It's not in the way it's you face in every street sign
It's not everyday someone reaches me like you did
I can recall every single time that we kiss

Yeah, it is why you're away
It's a struggle just for us to stay the same

Tonight I feel you come back home
Like a drifter finding shelter in these arms
Tonight I feel you've come back home
Yeah, and I know you were never really gone

It's not in the way you ignore me when I'm too proud
It's not in the way that you mock me when I'm too loud
No, it's not in the way that you comfort me when I cry
No, it's not in the way that you came back into my life

Oh life, it was why you were away
Made me wonder whether everything had changed

Tonight I feel you come back home
Like a drifter finding shelter in these arms
Tonight I feel you've come back home
Yeah, and I know you were never really gone

And we do the best we can
'Cause there is no choice
To choose this is something we can leave, oh no

Oh, but tonight I feel you come back home
Like a drifter finding shelter in these arms
Tonight I feel you've come back home
Yeah, and I know you were never really gone
And I know you were never really gone
Oh no, yes I know you were never really gone
