Alone in an empty house
I'm thinking that if you just come home to me
Everything will be all right
And then the door opens
And you knock on it as if to say "Please"
I let you in my sacred grounds
And you smile that special smile
Which is erased when you see the mess I've made
You tell me to clean it up
And now it's obvious I was wrong
Sitting here in the dead of night
I'm wondering what you're doing
You're doing okay, I hope and pray
But time passes swiftly
And soon night turns to day.
