If I'm still not home when you're ready for bed
Please don't lie awake wondering where I am
Cause I'm sorry, I couldn't make it in
If you call my name and I don't come in
Please don't think that it's something you did
Cause I'm sorry I couldn't tuck you in
It's just not fair to know you could think I'd want to go away

I lie awake by the window
I contemplate like I just don't know
My eyes submerge with water
So please don't think I could let you go
If you're feeling sad and you can't understand
How you could hear my voice and not hold my hand
I'm so sorry I, I couldn't pick you up

I lie awake by the window
I contemplate like I just don't know
My eyes submerge with water
So please don't think I could let you go

Just so you know, you're my shining light, every night
that takes me home
When I'm still not home when you wake up
Please don't feel like you should give up on me.

    Lyric CorrectionI think the last part...

    "Just so you know, you're my shining light, every night
    that takes me home
    When I'm still not home when you wake up
    Please don't feel like you should give up on me."

    Should be...

    "Just hold on, you're my shining light, every night, that takes me home.
    Just hold on, you're my shining light, every night, that takes me home.
    If I'm still not home when you wake up
    Please don't feel like you should give up on me."
