  • Same ol' bedroom floor
    Same ol' empty sheets
    I hate this haunted bed
    So down here's where I sleep

    Tryin' to find a place
    To hide what you have left
    Some things never change
    My heart hasn't yet

    Well, I don't wanna go out tonight
    Yeah, but I can't be alone
    Standing underneath this broke street light
    Can't somebody take me home
    Can't somebody take me home

    The hope that we had left
    Wrapped around your ring
    That river just rolled on by
    When I watched it sink

    Well, I don't wanna go out tonight
    Yeah, but I can't be alone
    Standing underneath this broke street light
    Can't somebody take me home
    Can't somebody take me

    Out of this bar
    Out of this heartache
    Out of this town
    That just keeps breakin' down
    Keeps breakin' down

    Well, I don't wanna go out tonight
    Yeah, but I can't be alone
    Standing underneath this broke street light
    Can't somebody take me home

    I don't wanna go out tonight
    Yeah, but I can't be alone
    Standing underneath this broke street light
    Can't somebody take me home
    Can't somebody take me home
    Won't you take me home Writer/s: Radney M. Foster, Randall W. Rogers
