I will stay if you let me stay
and I'll go if you let me go
but I won't go far away
because you're my only home

I will hide what you want hidden
and I'll roam if you say roam
but I'd just as soon you didn't
because you're my only home.

When you cancel dinner plans,
When you cross the street and you don't take my hand,
When you make impossible demands
I wish I didn't understand.

I will stay if you let me stay
and I'll go if you let me go
but I won't go far away
because you're my only home

I will hide what you want hidden,
and I'll roam if you say roam
but I'd just as soon you didn't
because you're my only home

    General CommentFace it, they don't love you anymore. But you are not strong enough to leave on your own. You are going to hang around until they make you leave. Sucks to be you... and I have been.

    General CommentPossibly my favorite of all his songs. Just the *way* he says it, makes me tear up almost every time, and I don't cry at any other song than this.

    General CommentThis is such a gorgeous, gorgeous song... and so appropriate on a Valentine's Day that is a bit lonelier than usual.
