You never liked this place where we'd been living all along
So, you packed up your things and bought a one-way ticket home
Leaving never hurt as much as being left behind

[Chorus:]
I would change my life
I would make it right
I would change my life
If you would only change your mind

I have spent my hours on some misbegotten dream
I have spent my money on some foolish hearted things
I have spent my memories on old embittered wine

[Chorus]

I wish that I could find the words to make you come back home
I wish that I could say the things you needed for so long
I wish that you could see me now, maybe then you'd find

[Chorus]
