  • I think I've already lost you
    I think you're already gone
    I think I'm finally scared now
    You think I'm weak, I think you're wrong
    I think you're already leaving
    Feels like your hand is on the door
    I thought this place was an empire
    Now I'm relaxed, I can't be sure

    And I think you're so mean
    I think we should try
    I think I could need this in my life and
    I think I'm scared
    I think too much
    I know it's wrong, it's a problem I'm dealing

    If you're gone, maybe it's time to come home
    There's an awful lot of breathing room
    But I can hardly move
    If you're gone, baby you need to come home, come home
    There's a little bit of something me
    In everything in you

    I bet you're hard to get over
    I bet the room just won't shine
    I bet my hands I can stay here
    And I bet you need more than you mind

    And I think you're so mean
    I think we should try
    I think I could need this in my life
    I think I'm just scared that I know too much
    I can't relate and that's a problem I'm feeling

    If you're gone, maybe it's time to come home
    There's an awful lot of breathing room
    But I can hardly move
    If you're gone, baby you need to come home, come home
    There's a little bit of something me
    In everything in you

    I think you're so mean
    I think we should try
    I think I could need this in my life and
    I think I'm scared
    Do I talk too much?
    I know it's wrong, it's a problem I'm dealing

    If you're gone, maybe it's time to come home
    There's an awful lot of breathing room
    But I can hardly move
    If you're gone
    Hell baby, you need to come home, come home
    There's a little bit of something me
    In everything in you (you)
    (Something in me)
    (Everything in you)
    (Something in me)
    In you Writer/s: ROB THOMAS, ROBERT THOMAS

  • Scott from Brisbane, AustraliaThis is my favorite Matchbox Twenty song.
  • Martin from Fresno, CaIt is a reminder to put your family first no matter what your career is.
  • J.r. from Crowville, WaHeard this song in college. I played it a lot when I broke up with my then girlfriend. I really have mixed emotions whenever this song comes on.
