Your car's out in the driveway
Your coat hangs by the door
And you're downstairs in your favorite chair
Like every night before

We have been a long,
Long time together in this house
But baby, if you lived here
You'd be home by now

Everything you've ever done
You've done it on your own
And I guess I know by now
How to be alone

Sometimes I think the same roof
Should be enough somehow
But baby, if you lived here
You'd be home by now

Now can't you see the light is on
And don't you know the door is open?
Come inside before it's over
'Cause out there's just getting colder

I don't know which way to go
This road does weave and wind
And almost there is never where I thought
I'd live my life

We throw away the best of days
Like they'll always be around
But baby, if you lived here
You'd be home by now

Now can't you see the light is on
And don't you know the door is open?
Come inside before it's over
'Cause out there's just getting colder

I don't know what left to do
Don't know what's left to say
It's hard for me to believe
You wanted it this way

I miss you like an empty sky
Would miss its clouds
But baby, if you lived here
You'd be home by now

But baby, if you lived here
You'd be home by now
