When this is over I think we should
Make a decision that we'll never go through this again
Barely speaking, distance growing
Summer's ending, you know that I'll be leaving
Might not be back again

I want to take you out at night
Go on a date, go to someplace nice
Somewhere we can watch the water flow
Niagara Falls, maybe down in Mexico
To someplace not this apartment

We moved in together we thought it might be
The problem, solution seemed easy
Separation, time apart, never knowing this house does not a heart fill
Or vice-a-versa

But this is our home
This is our home
Right now, we gotta get to it alone
This is our home
This is our home
I understand now, we gotta get to it alone

I want to see you out the living room
I want to never repeat this month of June
And we'll turn this hell into lessons learned
And you'll become the one I never even knew
I was looking for

You're daydreaming about us meeting
Catching eyes, using smiles as greetings
Running into each other down the road
And this detour took us the long way home
But at least it got us here

This is our home
This is our home
Right now, we gotta get to it alone
This is our home
This is our home
I understand now, we gotta get to it alone

And they say that home is where the heart is
But where's your heart when you're homeless
And maybe the heart is the architect
And if so please turn this bad scene into a palace
For now we'll take the long way, the back road song
Take the long way the back road song
We'll take the long way, the back road song
And right now, we gotta get to it alone
And right now, we gotta get to it alone
And right now, I understand we gotta make it alone
