[Her:]

Alabama, Arkansas,

I do love my ma and pa,

Not the way that I do love you.

[Him:]

Holy, Moley, me, oh my,

You’re the apple of my eye,

Girl I’ve never loved one like you.

[Her:]

Man oh man you’re my best friend,

I scream it to the nothingness,

There ain’t nothing that I need.

[Him:]

Well, hot and heavy, pumpkin pie,

Chocolate candy, Jesus Christ,

Ain’t nothing please me more than you.

[Both:]

Ahh Home. Let me come home.

Home is wherever I’m with you.

Ahh Home. Let me come ho-oh-home.

Home is wherever I’m with you.

La, la, la, la, take me home.

Mother, I’m coming home.

[Him:]

I’ll follow you into the park,

Through the jungle through the dark,

Girl I never love one like you.

[Her:]

Moats and boats and waterfalls,

Alley-ways and pay phone calls,

I’ve been everywhere with you.

[Him:]

We laugh until we think we’ll die,

Barefoot on a summer night

Nothin’ new is sweeter than you.

[Her:]

And in the streets you run afree,

Like it’s only you and me,

Geeze, you’re something to see.

[Both:]

Ahh Home. Let me come home.

Home is wherever I’m with you.

Ahh Home. Let me come ho-oh-home.

Home is wherever I’m with you.

La, la, la, la, take me home.

Daddy, I’m coming home.

(Talking)

Him: Jade.

Her: Alexander.

Him: Do you remember that day you fell outta my window?

Her: I sure do, you came jumping out after me.

Him: Well, you fell on the concrete, nearly broke your ass, you

Were bleeding all over the place and I rushed you out to the

Hospital, you remember that?

Her: Yes I do.

Him:  Well there’s something I never told you about that night.

Her: What didn’t you tell me?

Him: While you were sitting in the backseat smoking a cigarette

You thought was gonna be your last, I was falling deep, deeply in

Love with you, and I never told you until now.

[Both:]

Ahh Home. Let me come home.

Home is wherever I’m with you.

Ahh Home. Let me come ho-oh-home.

Home is wherever I’m alone with you.

[Him:]

Home. Let me come home.

Home is wherever I’m with you.

[Her:]

Ahh Home. Let me come ho-oh-home.

Home is wherever I’m alone with you.

[Her:]

Alabama, Arkansas,

I do love my ma and pa…

Moats and boats and waterfalls,

Ally-ways and pay phone calls…

[Both:]

Ahh Home. Let me come home.

Home is wherever I’m with you.

Ahh Home. Let me come ho-oh-home.

Home is wherever I’m alone with you.
