I want to go home
But where is it really
I felt so safe with you
Before you left me
They disowned me
Over nothing
I’ve been abandoned
I’m starting all over
Again
 
Explain to me
How it came to this
What made my luck suddenly change?
Why even the streets
Don’t agree with me
I was once loved and I loved others
But feelings changed
And now I have no one
To comfort me
I have no place to run to
It all took a turn for the worst
All I am is skin and bone
I want to go home
Trailing the town looking but
No one takes pity on the homeless
 
My eyes are swollen
My head is hurting
I need to sleep
Even the ground seems comfortable
Right now to me
But I must keep going
Hoping for sympathy
I thought that I
Wasn’t in need of a back up plan
I was so secure
Back when I had somewhere to go
 
Lies seem like nothing at first
But then when it comes out
You realise
It was too late
The words of hate
It’s been hanging in the air for so long
Now you’ve gone
You were all I had
After they neglected me
You kept me sane
Now I’m in a state
Of physical pain
Explain to me
How it came to this
What made my luck suddenly change?
Why even the streets
Don’t agree with me
I was once loved and I loved others
But feelings changed
And now I have no one
To comfort me
I have no place to run to
It all took a turn for the worst
All I am is skin and bone
I want to go home
Trailing the town looking but
No one takes pity on the homeless
 
Laying on the cold concrete
Ignoring how the pain
Is getting to me
Forgetting how much I need you
Lying to myself I need no one else
But me
My dreams are of a better time
When warmth and love were mine
Gave up trailing looking for pity
Nowadays no one feels sorry for the homeless
