she called my sneakers tennis shoes
i knew she was from the west coast
or the best coast, like she'd say
i had to disagree

i fell in love with a ship
a vessel, with at least 20 holes
yeah but she still floats
i fell in love with the sea
a brilliant tidal wave
she devestated me

come back home
and bring those green eyes
when are you coming home?

i fell in love with a queen
a king who burned my village down
i paid her with love and taxes
i fell in love with the street sign that told me where to go
oh why do i go any where?

come back home
and bring those green eyes
oh when are you coming home?

get back here
cause baby these blue eyes are never as bright without you....

and when i called you in San Fransisco
i knew you had started a new life
without me... you're only you

come back home
and bring those green eyes
when are you coming home?

get back here
cause baby these blue eyes are never as bright without you....

when are you coming home?
when are you coming home?
when are you coming home?

    General CommentThey both loved each other. Things couldn't work out. He never gave up on her. He still loves her, but she's moved on without him even though she means as much to him as before. He just can't let go of that. This song is put together so well. The lines are really simple yet like touching no matter how fagass that sounds. It's the one that got away.
