They picked you up today
You were sleeping in our car
I saw the pictures
Outside our house, not so far
The nights I've spent alone
I thought you were a liar
I guess I should have known

But you look clear in the path
Of the one who got away

It's you, it's you
Evidence will line up soon
It's you, it's you
I will never lie for you

You thought you were getting away
But you know it isn't right
So you won't be coming home
Won't be coming home, tonight

This was all we had
And you took it away for good
I can't forgive you now
I wish I could
All the nights I've spent alone
I never knew, you're gone forever
And I'm here without you


But you look clear in the path
Of the one who got away

It's you, it's you
Evidence will line up soon
It's you, it's you
I will never lie for you

You thought you were getting away
But you know it isn't right
So you won't be coming home
Won't be coming home, tonight

Never sleep again
Never sleep again

Never sleep again
Never sleep again

It's you, it's you
And now both our hands are tied
So you won't be coming home
Won't be coming home, tonight

It's you, it's you
No escaping it this time
No you won't be coming home
Won't be coming home, tonight
