Did you think about it when you were breaking his heart?
Think about the consequences that you knew from the start,
that meant nothing to you, didn't cross your mind, 'cause you're selfish?
Would've followed my steps, crossed the country for you,
always fully secured that you were happy, too.
Did it matter to you? Well, that's not how it seems. Yeah, you're selfish.

Oh, whatcha comin' home for? Oh, don't come here.
Oh, what are you coming home for? Oh, just stay there.

You'd had warnings before of how it could be, but you chose to ignore,
thinking you wouldn't see. But they proved to be right, and you started to fall in love.
And you knew it was special, you knew it was right, but you started to freak out,
and so said goodbye. Did it matter to you that you were
burning his heart to the ground?

Oh, whatcha comin' home for? Oh, don't come here.
Oh, what are you coming home for? Oh, just stay there.

Oh, you've changed. (I thought I knew you.)
Oh, you're different. (This isn't right.)
Oh, you've changed. (I thought I knew you.)
Oh, you're just like them. (You know this isn't right.)

Oh, whatcha comin' home for? (Oh, you've changed. I thought I knew you.)
Oh, don't come here. (Oh, you're different. This isn't right.)
Oh, what are you coming home for? (Oh, you've changed. I thought I knew you.)
Oh, just stay there. (Oh, you're just like them. You know this isn't right.)

Oh, whatcha comin' home for? (I thought I knew you.)
Oh, don't come here. (This isn't right.)
Oh, what are you coming home for? (I thought I knew you.)
Oh, just stay there. (You know this isn't right.)
