"Fire Escape" as written by John Paul White and Matthew Mayfield....
I see you bite your bottom lip
Can you feel my kisses on your hands?
You're almost here, you catch your breath,
A ghost is whisperin' in your head:
''No, you're not home''

I'm on a fire escape
Where you said to wait
And I did, yes I did
Oh, I heard the cold winds say:
"You're a fool to stay"
But I did, yes I did

No, you're not my home

No matter how my heart tries,
I'm not too blind to realize
When I'm free from the grip of this life,
You won't be there by my side
''No, you're not home''

I'm on a fire escape
Where you said to wait
And I did, yes I did
No, I heard the cold winds say:
"You're a fool to stay"
But I did, yes I did

Oh, you're not my home
Oh, you're not my home
You're not my home

I'm on a fire escape
Where you said to wait
And I did, yes I did
No, I heard the cold winds say:
"You're a fool to stay"
But I did, yes I did

Oh, you're not my home

And every word I wanted to say
Got replaced with the wedding ring

    Lyric CorrectionThank you for posting the lyrics, but there are a few small errors...

    I see you bite your bottom lip
    Can you feel my kisses on your hips?
    I almost hear you catch your breath
    My ghost is whispering in your head
    ‘No… you’re not home…’
    I’m on a fire escape
    Where you said to wait
    And I did, I did
    I heard the cold wind say
    ‘You’re a fool to stay’
    but I did, I did
    no…you’re not my home
    no matter how my heart tries
    I’m not too blind to realize
    That when I’m free from the grip of this life
    You wont be there by my side
    No…you’re not my home
    I’m on a fire escape
    Where you said to wait
    And I did, I did
    I heard the cold wind say
    ‘you’re a fool to stay’
    but I did, I did
    no…you’re not my home
    every word I wanted to sing
    got replaced with a wedding ring
