LyricsEdit

I know you were needing more of me than I gave
When we heard your cousin had crashed and passed away
I hate it when I talk without thinking
I will do what you are needing me to do

I want to be good to you.
I want to be there for you.
And when I come home
You still want me to.

When your best friend got married I was off and gone
You said it wasn't a problem that there was nothing wrong with
Putting my work, my art and my songs
Before spending time at the wedding
As I listened over the phone line
You talked you sounded so sad
Alone in a room full of strangers
Some dude saying I treat you so bad
Who is this guy and what does he know?
Apparently more than I do.

I want to be good to you.
I want to be there for you.
And when I come home
Will you still want me to?
And when I come home
Will you still want me to?

When you were born I promised myself
I'd always be there for you
To help you feel safe and never alone
No matter what life put you through
Time passed by, I lost my way
And didn't find it for years
A strong young woman now stands in her place
The child has disappeared
Now that I'm home,
Do you still want me here?

I want to be good to you.
I want to be there for you.
I want to be good to you.
And when I come home
Will you still want me to?
And if I come home
Will you still want me to?
