  • (Hey) Alabama, Arkansas
    I do love my ma and pa
    Not that way that I do love you

    Well, holy moly, me oh my
    You're the apple of my eye
    Girl, I've never loved one like you

    Man, oh man, you're my best friend
    I scream it to the nothingness
    There ain't nothing that I need

    Well, hot and heavy, pumpkin pie
    Chocolate candy, Jesus Christ
    Ain't nothing please me more than you

    Oh, home, let me come home
    Home is wherever I'm with you
    Oh, home, let me come home
    Home is wherever I'm with you

    (Hey)
    (Hey)
    (Hey, hey)
    La, la, la, la, take me home
    (Daddy) Mother, I'm coming home

    I'll follow you into the park
    Through the jungle, through the dark
    Girl, I never loved one like you (hey)

    Moats and boats and waterfalls
    Alleyways and pay phone calls
    I've been everywhere (hey) with you

    That's true, laugh until we think we'll die
    Barefoot on a summer night
    Never could be sweeter than with you (hey)

    And in the streets you run a-free
    Like it's only you and me
    Geez, you're something to see

    Oh, home, let me come home
    Home is wherever I'm with you
    Oh, home, let me come home
    Home is wherever I'm with you

    (Hey)
    (Hey)
    (Hey, hey)
    La, la, la, la, take me home
    (Daddy) Mother, I'm coming home

    "Jade"

    "Alexander"

    "Do you remember that day you fell out of my window?"

    "I sure do, you came jumping out after me"

    "Well, you fell on the concrete, nearly broke your ass
    And you were bleedin' all over the place
    And I rushed you out to the hospital, you remember that?"

    "Yes, I do"

    "Well, there's something I never told you about that night"

    "What didn't you tell me?"

    "While you were sitting in the backseat smoking a cigarette
    You thought was gonna be your last
    I was falling deep, deeply in love with you
    And I never told you 'til just now"

    "Aww"

    Oh, home, let me come home
    Home is wherever I'm with you
    Oh, home, let me come home
    Home is where I'm alone with you

    Home, let me come home
    Home is wherever I'm with you

    Oh, home, yes, I am home
    Home is when I'm alone with you

    Alabama, Arkansas
    I do love my ma and pa
    Moats and boats and waterfalls
    Alleyways and pay phone calls

    Home is when I'm alone with you
    Home is when I'm alone with you Writer/s: Alexander Ebert, Jade Allyson Castrinos
