  • Come to my window
    Crawl inside, wait by the light of the moon
    Come to my window
    I'll be home soon

    I would dial the numbers
    Just to listen to your breath
    I would stand inside my hell
    And hold the hand of death
    You don't know how far I'd go
    To ease this precious ache
    You don't know how much I'd give

    Or how much I can take
    Just to reach you
    Just to reach you
    Oh to reach you

    Come to my window
    Crawl inside, wait by the light of the moon
    Come to my window, I'll be home soon

    Keeping my eyes open
    I cannot afford to sleep
    Giving away promises
    I know that I can't keep
    Nothing fills the blackness
    That has seeped into my chest

    I need you in my blood
    I am forsaking all the rest
    Just to reach you
    Just to reach you
    Oh to reach you, oh

    Come to my window
    Crawl inside, wait by the light of the moon
    Come to my window, I'll be home soon

    I don't care what they think
    I don't care what they say
    What do they know about this love,
    Anyway

    Come, come to my window
    I'll be home, I'll be home, I'll be home
    I am coming home

    Come to my window, oh-ho
    Crawl inside, wait by the light of the moon
    Come to my window, I'll be home soon
    I'll be home, I'll be home
    I am coming home

    Come to my window, oh-ho
    Crawl inside, wait by the light of the moon
    Come to my window
    I'll be home soon
    I'll be home, I'll be home, I'll be home Writer/s: Melissa L. Etheridge
