Album: Hello Exile (2019)
  • I've memorized every single moment
    Every fleeting passage of time
    The way you'd laugh and dance in the kitchen
    After drinking too much cheap red wine
    I always rewind, the home movies in my mind
    Back to the times, first moving in with you

    I have so much to tell ya
    Please come back to Philadelphia
    This place ain't the same without you Anna

    You got a great big new promotion
    But now you travel so damn much
    It's like our studio apartment is just a place to keep your stuff
    And when you're away, I walk around in a haze
    Reminiscing the days, first moving in with you

    I have so much to tell ya
    Please come back to Philadelphia
    This place ain't the same without you Anna
    And oh, how the neighborhood's changed
    And all our friends keep asking for ya
    This place ain't the same without you Anna

    But I will wait, for you babe
    Take as long as you need to take
    I'll be fine on my own
    Counting down the days until you come home

    I have so much to tell ya
    Please come back to Philadelphia
    This place ain't the same without you Anna
    And oh, how the neighborhood's changed
    And all our friends keep asking for ya
    This place ain't the same without you Anna

    But I will wait, for you babe
    I have so much to tell ya
    I have so much to say
    Take as long as you need to take
    I have so much to tell ya
    I have so much to say
    Oh, Anna Writer/s: Thomas F. May, Joseph Godino, Greg Barnett, Eric Joseph Keen
