Come home for Christmas – stay for the year
Due to inclement weather we’re stuck staying here
Those Midwest winters could murder a martyr
Who would have thought they could follow us home

Tomorrow we drive away
Tomorrow we stop playing games with old lost acquaintances
We’ll head back to the new ones

No on really knows me, I can’t help but feel
In the rush of reunion you can’t tell what’s real
One place to another we take no for an answer
We’re allowed to build fences in every state

Tomorrow we’re heading east
Tomorrow we’re making our pease with our dead expectations
We’ll ride into the new ones

Tomorrow we’re moving back
Tomorrow we’ll know what we lack and lament our resistance
We’ll continue to hold it

Look for a lover to make you feel lonely
Due to intimate banter your stuck holding only
One hand to feed you another to bite
You’re still in the closet with one foot out the door
