TO CALL THIS HOME

I'VE GOT A TICKET TO SOME PLACE I HOPED I'D NEVER SEE
I'VE GOT A POCKETFUL OF DREAMS THAT NEVER CAME TO BE
I'VE GOT A HEART SHOT OF HOLES, AND ALL THESE MEMORIES

I'VE GOT AN HOURGLASS THAT DOESN'T MOVE UNTIL I SLEEP
I'VE GOT AN AVALANCHE OF TESTIMONY BURYING
I'VE GOT MY REASONS, BUT MY REASONS TEND TO TURN ON ME

THE TIDE IS HIGH AND I KNOW
THAT I CAN'T BE SURE RIGHT NOW
IF I SHOULD STAY OR JUST LET GO
HAVE I WORN OUT MY LAST WELCOME
HAVE I TURNED THEIR HEARTS TO STONE
HAVE I WHISPERED THINGS IN CONFIDENCE
THAT BURNED THE FLAGS WE'VE FLOWN
HAVE I LIED, ONE TOO MANY TIMES
TO CALL THIS HOME

I'VE GOT A PHOTOGRAPH I KEEP TO KEEP REMINDING ME
'CAUSE I'VE GOTTA FEEL THAT I WAS ONCE MORE THAN THE MAN YOU SEE
I'VE GOT A LONG LIST OF OVERDUE APOLOGIES

I'VE GOT A STRING OF DISAPPOINTMENTS AND A CROOKED WRIST
I'VE GOT NO TRICKS LEFT UP MY SLEEVE BUT ONES YOU MIGHT'VE MISSED
I'VE GOTTA WONDER WHY YOU LET ME GET AWAY WITH THIS

THE TIDE IS HIGH AND I'M LOW
'CAUSE I CAN'T BE SURE RIGHT NOW
IF I SHOULD STAY OR JUST LET GO
HAVE I WORN OUT EVERY WELCOME
HAVE I TURNED THEIR HEARTS TO STONE
HAVE I WHISPERED THINGS IN CONFIDENCE
I NEVER SHOULD'VE KNOWN
HAVE I LIED, ONE TOO MANY TIMES
TO CALL THIS HOME
