home is hard like Chinese puzzles
of rings & rope, we tried to solve them,
+++ fumbling with our child hands
+++ (as) they resist our best advances,
& home is harder..

home is hard like 20 questions,
the words get lost, we tried to guess them,
+++ was there something that I could’ve said
+++ to calm the voices in your head?
home is harder..
+++++ I believe our intentions are good,
+++++ that we’ve loved each other the best that we could,
+++++ I know that I’ve never suffered like you,
+++++ and I’m sorry that there wasn’t more I could do..

home is where the war is over,
with no parade, the wounded gather,
+++ maybe we could start again,
+++ when I’m away I still pretend,
but home it’s harder..
+++++ I believe our intentions are good,

home is where the war is over,
but at each loud noise we dive for cover,
+++ was there something that I could’ve said
+++ to calm the voices in your head?
home is harder..
+++ so breathe it out in one long sigh,
+++ when I leave I wonder why
home is harder..
