lyrics

Down at the end of a boulevard,
looking for love in another’s arms.
Sold her soul for the highest price,
but she was never satisfied.

He drove that road every night
with a broken heart and bloodshot eyes.
He called her name with no reply.
That woman was his very wife.

He’d say, “Come home, back where you belong.
Oh, my heart is growing heavier the longer you are gone.
You could wipe away the pain, if only I could know
that you’d come home, back where you belong.”

Years went by without a word,
but he chased that girl like a long-lost bird.
And while she worked that strip on the boulevard,
his lonely cry was all she heard.

“Come home, back where you belong.
Oh, my heart is growing heavier the longer you are gone.
You could wipe away the pain, if only I could know
that you’d come home, back where you belong.”

She called him up from the county jail.
Yeah, they locked her up and set the bail.
But he broke the bank to pay the fine,
and he won the heart of a wayward bride.

When he said, “Come home, back where you belong.
Oh, my heart is growing heavier the longer you are gone.
You could wipe away the pain, if only I could know
that you’d come home, back where you belong.”
