Home (St. Lucia)

You don't ever talk to me and everybody knows about it How come no one told me that something's wrong? You don't ever talk to me anyway The night comes around and you ain't making any bones about it How come no one told me the light was off? There will be no guarantee, we will make it over Cause the light's all around and you ain't telling anybody about it But I don't like to be torn away Oh, when you look at me They say the fight's on the ground but there's a lion in the cage and it's silent Whatcha think I did when they sold me off? There won' be no guarantee, we will make it over But you can call your friends and you can call your family out to the road You can tell them you're going home, home I did not expect for nearly everyone to know about it I was always thinking about myself When you look in the mirror, do you see something better? But when life knocks you down, is there a spirit that you talk to about it? I look in the mirror and ask myself Can there be a guarantee we will make it over cause You can tell your friends and you can tell your family now that you know You can tell them you're going home, home And you, you don't know one thing that makes it right And time, baby, like a thief running through the night And no, no, you will never be the same after tonight Cause time, baby, like a thief will steal away your life Oh darling, please You'll never be a lover You'll never be the one for me You're not the one for me No, you'll never be the one for me Oh baby, you can call your friends and you can call your family now that you know That there's a difference when you're waiting for a life that's never there 'til it's gone Oh, we'll take it baby I will never call you crazy, I will never ask you for more But you can tell them you're going home, home
