Idlewild - Welcome Home Lyrics

I go outside to find the middle of nowhere
everyone needs their own empty stage
just like the sky with no beginning or ending
or reading a book without a last page

Stop and turn around
and say it with your eyes closed
you don't need to welcome me home
stop, turn around
try looking with your eyes wide open

As we live our lives
through a series of glances
and you smile without smiling
for a whole another year
I think we need a little bit more understanding
I think the future is already here
so I won't ask you to

Stop and turn around
and say it with your eyes closed
you don't need to welcome me home
stop, turn around
try looking with your eyes wide open
welcome home
