Why don't we go
back to the home we left behind
Maybe I miss the way it used to be

This room's getting covered in dust
but I don't seem to mind
I'm tired and I just don't wanna clean

But at least I'm trying
to make it better for you and me

Everybody here's working overtime
Wheels keep turning, keep pushing the line
The pressure's on me to save my life
I'm going back to where the water meets these rocky shores
I'm man enough to say I can't take anymore
I can't wait to leave, to save my life

Day by day I see
lonesome strangers always passing me by
I smile but they just don't say a thing

Cause' where I come from
people wave without even having to try
Let's just wait and see what tomorrow brings

But at least I'm trying
to make it better for you and me

Everybody here's working overtime
Wheels keep turning, keep pushing the line
The pressure's on me to save my life
I'm going back to where the water meets these rocky shores
I'm man enough to say I can't take anymore
I can't wait to leave, to save my life

I'm working sixteen hours, seven days a week,
just burning my soul
I'm putting food on the table, shoes on my feet,
I can't wait to go home

Everybody here's working overtime
Wheels keep turning, keep pushing the line
The pressure's on me to save my life
I'm going back to where the water meets these rocky shores
I'm man enough to say I can't take anymore
I can't wait to leave, to save my life

Oh, I can't wait to leave
No, I can't wait to leave, to save my life
