In Your Home Without You ):

-

Awake in your apartment

You not in it

Hurts

Painfully

Will this tear us apart?

Will the mad men in there take your heart?

How are you tonight?

No 'phone number to your pay'phone yet

And I guess you're not better yet

If I've been carelessly tied up today

I'm sorry

My schedule was the norm until tonight

Laundry and then back to you

But you were elsewhere when I returned

Now you are trapped in there

But I know you must get out

That's what all my friends tend to say

I just gotta pray

And I have to learn to understand diabetes

If I am on my way to having it, myself

You in pain is tearing me wide open

Why my heart is unsettled

Just drives me into my own sense of panic

This is no picnic

Being without you

I wait for you

Please come home
