  • Where'd you go?
    I miss you so
    Seems like it's been forever
    That you've been gone

    She said, "Some days I feel like shit"
    Some days I wanna quit, and just be normal for a bit"
    I don't understand why you have to always be gone
    I get along but the trips always feel so long
    And, I find myself tryna stay by the phone
    'Cause your voice always helps me when I feel so alone
    But I feel like an idiot, workin' my day around the call
    But when I pick up I don't have much to say
    So, I want you to know it's a little fucked up
    That I'm stuck here waitin', at times debatin'
    Tellin' you that I've had it with you and your career
    Me and the rest of the family here singing "Where'd you go?"

    I miss you so
    Seems like it's been forever
    That you've been gone
    Where'd you go?
    I miss you so,
    Seems like it's been forever
    That you've been gone
    Please come back home

    You know the place where you used to live,
    Used to barbeque up burgers and ribs,
    Used to have a little party every Halloween with candy by the pile,
    But now, you only stop by every once in a while,
    Shit, I find myself just fillin' my time,
    Anything to keep the thought of you from my mind,
    I'm doin' fine, I plan to keep it that way,
    You can call me if you find you have somethin' to say,
    And I'll tell you, I want you to know it's a little fucked up,
    That I'm stuck here waitin', at times debatin',
    Tellin' you that I've had it with you and your career,
    Me and the rest of the family here singing, "Where'd you go?"

    I miss you so,
    Seems like it's been forever,
    That you've been gone.
    Where'd you go?
    I miss you so,
    Seems like it's been forever,
    That you've been gone,
    Please come back home

    I want you to know it's a little fucked up,
    That I'm stuck here waitin', no longer debatin',
    Tired of sittin' and hatin' and makin' these excuses,
    For while you're not around, and feeling so useless,
    It seems one thing has been true all along,
    You don't really know what you got 'til it's gone,
    I guess I've had it with you and your career,
    When you come back I won't be here and you'll can sing it

    Where'd you go?
    I miss you so,
    Seems like it's been forever,
    That you've been gone
    Where'd you go?
    I miss you so,
    Seems like it's been forever,
    That you've been gone

    Please come back home
    Please come back home
    Please come back home
    Please come back home
    Please come back home Writer/s: MIKE SHINODA

  • Bitsis from La Vernia, Txthis is just like my gf she moved but we still love eachother
  • Zuko from Rancho , UtI feel like this everyday. Ever since my best boyfriend and I had to split to go home, it is hard to see everyone with their loved ones, when mine is a million miles away. Its a desperate, longing feeling, something that just can't go away, and this song relates to it in the best way.
  • Nick from London, EnglandBrilliant song with great lyrics and a good beat.
  • Ian from Newport, RiIt's a sad song, but I find it kind of funny that it is partially about Mark Prior. The entire video, I thought of how Cubs fans were thinking the same thing.
  • Sierra from Sactown, Cathis song maked me cry, even though i am not in this spot, it makes me cry thinking about it
  • Kelsi from Ionia, MiWow...i think i listen to this song everyday also...i know what these people are going through...my brother has just left for the Iraq war..and wow,,,i hear this song and just cry....so i'm with all the people that know what it is like.....come home safe,,,,,<3
  • Damian from Melbourne, AustraliaI only started to listen to Fort Minor recently and I loved this song as soon as I heard it.
    Mike has said how the perspective of the person away from their family is overdone. I love how he has done it from the family perspective
  • Zoey from Irvine, CaThis song should be about the war, not long distance relationships. it should be about a girl who's boyfriend goes to war, and she is nervous for him and misses him. now that's touching. Go FORT MINER!
  • Eric from Milltown, InLove this song. Mike is a great lyricist and Holly is a beautiful singer. Great beat to it. Can't wait till the next Linkin Park cd.
