  • I wanna wake where I was born and breathe the old air in
    I need a haunt from a ghost that I knew way back then
    Oh I hope they left the light on
    I want someone who knows me just to say my name
    To tell me though things are different now somehow I'm still the same
    Oh I can almost hear them calling

    I don't know if I'll be back again
    It turns out they were right again
    (Get back to what you know)(Get back to what you do)
    I gotta get back to me, ooh
    If it's true home is where the heart is
    I guess now I'm homeless
    (Get back to what you know)(Get back to what you do)
    I gotta get back to me without you

    For two years I've lived my life way out on a limb
    I put my faith in you not knowing you would break in the end
    Oh I hate feeling fallen

    I don't know if I'll be back again
    It turns out they were right again
    (Get back to what you know) (Get back to what you do)
    Gotta get back to me, ooh
    If it's true home is where the heart is
    I guess now I'm homeless
    (Get back to what you know)(Get back to what you do)
    Gotta get back to me without you

    I added rain to your ocean
    What did it do, it meant nothing to you
    You made grief my chief emotion
    Why'd you have to do what you thought you had to do

    Get back to what know

    I don't know if I'll be back again
    Turns out they were right again
    (Get back to what you know)(Get back to what you do)
    Gotta get back to me, ooh
    If it's true home is where the heart is
    Oh I guess now I'm homeless
    (Get back to what you know)(Get back to what you do)
    Gotta get back to me without you

    The slow death of a slow dance
    The tailspin of a romance
    Gotta get back and breathe the old air in Writer/s: AARON HENNINGSEN, BRIAN HENNINGSEN, CLARA HENNINGSEN, KIMBERLY PERRY, NEIL PERRY, REID PERRY
