You've been gone much longer than you
Ever said you had the plan to
I'm just gonna wait 'till you come home

 Though I count the days, they're grey without you
The weather's much better when I think about you
I'm just gonna wait till you come home

 Empty glasses, burnt out matches  Curtains drawn on near-full blackness 
I'm sleeping through the day, you're coming home
To reclaim this heart you owned 

Lover, leave me
Make me burn
You're coming back!
You're coming back!

I'll wait patiently for your return 
You're coming back!
You're coming back!

I'm clutching at straws 
I'm climbing up the walls 
But every time I fall
Back into my hole
I'm feeling like a wretch 
I'm looking for a catch 
But you're an itch that I can't scratch 
I know you're coming back

You've been gone so long you're fading 
And it takes all the time I can find just retaining  Thoughts of things we did while you were here
But I know you will return my dear
