  • Wish I were with you, but I couldn't stay
    Every direction leads me away
    Pray for tomorrow but for today
    All I want
    Is to be home

    Stand in the mirror, you look the same
    Just looking for shelter from the cold and the pain
    Someone to cover safe from the rain
    And all I want
    Is to be home

    The echoes and silence, patience and grace
    All of these moments I'll never replace
    No fear of my heart, absence of faith
    And all I want
    Is to be home

    All I want
    Is to be home

    People I've loved, I have no regrets
    Some I remember, some I forget
    Some of them livin', some of them dead
    And all I want
    Is to be home Writer/s: Christopher A. Shiflett, David Eric Grohl, Nate Mendel, Taylor Hawkins
