  • I got those jet pack blues
    Just like Judy
    The kind that makes June feel like September
    I'm the last one that you'll ever remember

    And I'm trying to find that peace of mind
    Behind these two white highway lines
    When the city goes silent
    The ringing in my ears gets violent

    She's in a long black coat tonight
    Waiting for me in the downpour outside
    She's singing "Baby come home" in a melody of tears
    While the rhythm of the rain keeps time

    And I remember "Baby, come home"
    I remember "Baby, come home"
    I remember "Baby, come home"
    I remember "Baby, come home"

    Did you ever love her? Do you know?
    Or did you never want to be alone?

    And she was singing "Baby, come home"
    "Baby, come home"

    I've got those jet pack blues
    Fight off the light tonight and just stay with me
    Honey, don't you leave

    Don't you remember how we used to split a drink?
    It never mattered what it was
    I think our hands were just that close
    The sweetness never lasted, no

    She's in a long black coat tonight
    Waiting for me in the downpour outside
    She's singing "Baby come home" in a melody of tears
    While the rhythm of the rain keeps time

    And I remember "Baby, come home"
    I remember "Baby, come home"
    I remember "Baby, come home"
    I remember "Baby, come home"

    Did you ever love her? Do you know?
    Or did you never want to be alone?

    And she was singing "Baby, come home"
    I remember "Baby, come home"

    She's in a long black coat tonight
    Waiting for me in the downpour outside
    She's singing "Baby come home" in a melody of tears
    While the rhythm of the rain keeps time

    And I remember "Baby, come home"
    I remember "Baby, come home"
    I remember "Baby, come home"
    I remember "Baby, come home"

    Did you ever love her? Do you know?
    Or did you never want to be alone?

    And she was singing "Baby, come home"
