  • Come home early after class
    Don't be hanging 'round the back of the schoolyard
    I've been called up by a teacher
    She says she can't even reach you 'cause you're so far
    You've been talking with your fist
    We didn't raise you up like this, now did we
    There have been changes in this house
    Things that you don't know about in this family

    It don't make sense, but nevertheless
    You gotta believe us, it's all for the best
    It don't make sense
    The way things go
    Son you should know

    Sometimes moms and dads fall out of love
    Sometimes two homes are better than one
    Some things you can't tell your sister 'cause she's still too young
    Yeah you'll understand
    When you love someone

    There ain't no one here to blame
    Nothing's going to change with your old friends
    Your room will stay the same
    'Cause you'll only be away on the weekends

    It don't make sense but nevertheless
    You gotta believe us, it's all for the best
    It don't make sense
    It don't add up
    We'll always love you no matter what

    Sometimes moms and dads fall out of love
    Sometimes two homes are better than one
    Some things you can't tell your sister 'cause she's still too young
    Yeah you'll understand
    When you love someone
    When you love someone

    Come home early after class
    Don't be hanging 'round the back of the schoolyard
    And if we're crying on the couch
    Don't let it freak you out
    This has been so hard

    Sometimes moms and dads fall out of love
    Sometimes the best intentions just ain't enough
    Some things you can't tell your sister 'cause she's still too young
    Yeah you'll understand
    When you love someone
    When you love someone
    When you love someone
    When you love someone Writer/s: JAMES TAYLOR-WATTS, NOLAN SIPE, SAM HOLLANDER
