WON'T YOU COME DOWN

SHE SAID COME DOWN

TO MY FAMILY REUNION

COME DOWN

 

YOU CAN MEET MY DAD

YOU CAN SEE MY HOME

THEY ARE THE REASON

MY LOVE GETS STRONG

THE BARS I HAUNTED

BEFORE THERE WAS YOU

 

WON'T YOU COME DOWN

SHE SAID COME DOWN

TO MY HOLIDAY AT HOME

 

THIS IS THE ROOM

THERE CHAIR HE SAT IN

NOW IT'S POWDER BURN BLUE

THIS IS WHERE IT HAPPENED

 

THAT'S MY SISTER

AND HER HUSBAND THE BASTARD

SHE SMILES AT HIS MOUSTACHE

IT'S HIS LATEST DISASTER

 

MY SISTER USED TO GET HIGH

SHE USED TO MAKE A SOUND

NOW SHE'S SWEET AND LOW WHEN HE'S AROUND

BUT SHE'S HAPPY FOR ME 'CAUSE I FOUND YOU

 

SEE HOW THE TIME IS FROZEN COLD

IS THIS HOW WE'RE GOING TO GET WHEN WE GET OLD

I DON'T KNOW

 

WON'T YOU COME HOME

I DON'T WANT TO BE ALONE

AT MY FAMILY REUNION

COME HOME

 

IT'S JUST HOW WE LEFT IT

EVERYTHING'S IN PLACE

WHEN HE WENT AWAY

A LITTLE SHRINE WAS MADE

 

DID YOU SEE MY MOTHER

DID YOU SEE HER FACE

THERE ARE SOME THINGS

TIME WON'T ERASE

 

ASK HER IF THERE'S SOMETHING IN THE KITCHEN

THAT NEEDS TENDING TO

AND SHE'LL SAY NO UNLESS SHE LIKES YOU

BUT YOU KNOW THERE'S NOTHING ANYONE OF US COULD DO
