I don't wonder where you are
I don't even care
Things have changed, they're not the same
You're not my cross to bear
I see you in a different light
The truth got through somehow
If you lived here, you'd be home now

If you lived here, you'd be on the phone
Talking to your momma
Saying you ain't gone and left here yet
But someday you was gonna
The day I pledged my love for you
Sure raised a few eyebrows
If you lived here, you'd be home now

You keep wanting me to be
Something that I'm not
What you see is what you get
And I'm the one you got
And I'm tired of breaking these rocks up in this field my heart won't plow
If you lived here you'd be home now

If you lived here, you'd be at my throat like every time before
Slinging them old hurting words and walking on out the door
Sometimes I think I might want you back
But there ain't no way, no how
If you lived here, you'd be home now

But it's time I did the right thing and released you from your vow
If you lived here, you'd be home now
If you lived here, you'd be home now
