  • You sent a photo out your window of Tokyo
    Told me you were doing fine
    You said the cherry blossoms were blooming
    And that I was on your mind
    But I couldn't make you out through the glitches
    It's how it always seems to go
    So we say our goodbyes over messenger
    As the network overloads
    When the network overloads

    You're my wanderer, little wanderer
    Off across the sea
    You're my wanderer, little wanderer
    Won't you wander back to me
    Back to me

    Always fall asleep when you're waking
    I count the hours on my hands
    Doing the math to the time zone you're at
    Is an unseen part of the plan
    But if you'll be my bluebird returning
    Then I'll be your evergreen
    Standing tall on your horizon
    Guiding you home to me
    Guiding you home to me

    You're my wanderer, little wanderer
    Off across the sea
    You're my wanderer, little wanderer
    Won't you wander back to me
    You're my wanderer, little wanderer
    How I wish that you could see
    You're my wanderer, little wanderer
    How I need you back with me
    Back with me

    You sent a photo out your window of Paris
    Of what you wish that I could see
    But someone's gotta be the lighthouse
    And that someone's gotta be me
    And I hope your absence makes us grow fonder
    I hope we always feel the same
    When our eyes meet past security,
    We embrace in the baggage claim
    When we kiss in the baggage claim

    You're my wanderer, little wanderer
    Off across the sea
    You're my wanderer, little wanderer
    Won't you wander back to me
    You're my wanderer, little wanderer
    How I wish that you could see
    You're my wanderer, little wanderer
    How I need you back with me
    Back with me Writer/s: Benjamin Gibbard
