A pint set on the piano by the open window
Your arm around my shoulder
One song after another

A church to praise the good times
And shelter from the bad times
And when our run came to an end
Felt like I'd lost my best friend

For a moment I was dreaming
We were just beginning
Thought, "Finally I've come home
Finally I've come home"

Officer let me explain
I lost something I love today
Yeah I know what it looks like
A rich kid with a good life

Now I know you're too young to
Have done things you can't undo
To rake over your dreams
And know this is what they've come to

I woke up in a strange room
Time to start again now
No one to help you find a way through
You're just meant to guess it somehow

Well for a moment I was dreaming
We were just beginning
Thought, "Finally I've come home, finally I've come home"

    My InterpretationThe singer has destroyed his relationship and is looking at all the pieces on the floor. "Strange Room" refers to either a police station cell after a ruinous night (hence talking to the officer), or the stranger\'s bedroom they woke up in after the previous song on the album, "Put the Radio On".\n\nI was in a long-distance relationship with a girl I first met in high school, 11 years later. I had moved away from Britain to Australia in that time, but was preparing to move back to be with her. It fell apart and didn\'t happen, and so the chorus ("finally I\'ve come home") rings bittersweet for me.
