COLUMBUS RETURNS

I'm home, I'm home

I know I left a stupid mess

But I've now lived the lives of twenty

I know this is where I want to stay

Can't say much about the rest

So what you been doing while I've been away?

You're back, you're back

Well that's all I want to say

It's changed from being a love to a boredom

If you think I'll try

You're wasting your time on me

You see my love don't come that easy

Don't shed a tear, shed a tear, shed a tear for me

I didn't expect you'd forgive me, forgive me straight away

After all you say you didn't get my lette

I've been fighting a fire with my paper and my clay

Look at my hand, see how they're burning

I don't care where you've been, or where you stood your ground

I've shed my skin for you, and I don't care what you've found

What did you do out there, that you couldn't do with me?

I've told all our friends, my love don't come that easy

I've told all our friends, what was will never now be

But I carved your name, on a hundred different trees

Believed I was looking at the same moon as ya

I swam in the water, so dark, deep and free

Look at my blood, it's light and it's flowing

Go back, go back, I've had your tearful eyes

I've been living too long in the house of yearning

You got what you wanted, now you've gone and lost the rest

Seems like you're trying to hang it on me

Well sorry now honey, this last bit's for free

Don't shed a tear, shed a tear, shed a tear for me

Don't shed a tear, shed a tear, shed a tear for me
