We're still the children we were then
And we never found a way
We never did get home
Where's Mommy, Daddy, where'd they go?
They've left us here alone
And with all the arts we've mastered
And all the things we've known
Who's going to take us home?

We're still the children we were then
Who's going to take us home?
We're still the children we were then
Who's going to take us home?
Take us home

And I hope you know that after all these demons
Have passed and gone
There's always one more left
And we simply can't turn on the light
And we surely can't turn off the night
We can't find a way to get away
From how we've grown
Still waiting to go home

We're still the children we were then
Still waiting to go home
We're still the children we were then
Still waiting to go home
Still waiting to go home

I apologize for any histrionics
Reality can be a crashing bore
But if you really want something maudlin
All you do is march abroad in
And let emotions pour
Let emotions pour!

But now in all sincerity
Try not to be too rough on me
When adding up the score
Who did what and how, what for!
And with all this knowledge
How can we be so alone?
Some people never do get home

We're still the children we once were
Some people never do get home
We're still the children we once were
Some people never do get home
Some people never do get home
Some people never do get home!

(Instrumental)

And with all this knowledge
How can we be so alone?
Some people never do get home

We're still the children we were then
Some people never do get home
We're still the children we were then
Some people never do get home
Some people never do get home
Some people never do get home

Take me home...now
