I want a child that never grows
And a love that I’ll never get to own
No slow days
There’s an ever-changing past
Busy nights, the brightest lights
You get your cake and eat it too
I want to wake up to parades
Neon billboards signs
Where the colours never fade away
It’s the happiest of all memorial days
Slow retreat, fast defeat

If you’re still alone I’d like to come back home
I’d like to come back home
If you’re still alone I’d like to come back home
I’d like to come back home

I have been sleeping with the most
The velvet sheets, the fattest sheep
There’s an ever blowing cold breeze
It’s like the planet’s just for me
There’s so much earth
There’s so much ash
There’s so much sea

If you’re still alone I’d like to come back home
I’d like to come back home
If you’re still alone I’d like to come back home
I’d like to come back home
If you’re still alone I’d like to come back home
I’d like to come back home
If you’re still alone I’d like to come back home
I’d like to come back home
I’d like to come back home

I want a child that never grows
And a love that I’ll never get to own
Those slow days
There’s an ever-changing path
Busy nights, the brightest lights
You get your cake and eat it too

If you’re still alone I’d like to come back home
I’d like to come back home
If you’re still alone I’d like to come back home
I’d like to come back home
If you’re still alone I’d like to come back home
I’d like to come back home
If you’re still alone I’d like to come back home
I’d like to come back home
I’d like to come back home
