  • All I waited for,
    Was a chance to make you understand
    And tell you these forgotten truths
    You never thought were real
    And if the world should turn it's back,
    You know that I'm still here

    Time won't ever steal my soul
    We're not broken, so please come home

    Morning comes, and life moves on
    And when it changed, you didn't know where you belong
    And I'll still catch you when you fall through a past that steals your sleep
    And scrawl these words upon your wall, remind you to believe

    Time won't ever steal my soul
    We're not broken, so please come home
    If the world has worn you down
    I'll be waiting, so please come home

    I won't let them break you down
    And I won't hear the empty sounds,
    I'm hopelessly pretending that I know the answer
    Angels light the neon fires that burn so cold through your desires
    And all you are is all I need to know

    When the world is insane,
    You get used to the pain
    And you don't even know what you feel
    And I was like you,
    All alone and confused
    But you know it's not forever

    Time won't ever steal my soul
    We're not broken, so please come home
    If the world has worn you down
    I'll be waiting, so please come home Writer/s: JOHN T RZEZNIK
