Lyrics

If I Go Home

Written By: Matt Hartke

Don't you worry if I go home and I won't worry if you stay the same at all
‘Cause times get frightening, oh-so-fast
But those times don't matter ‘cause they never last at all.
Yes, I think that you're ok because

The wind has shattered out your window,
And you look too mellowed out to be
Into something, something like me.
And wind has movement with no shadow
‘Cause you look too mellowed out to be
Into something, something like me

Don't you worry if I go home and I won't worry if you stay the same at all
‘Cause times get frightening, oh-so-fast
But those times don't matter cause they never last at all.
What you doin’, what you doin’, where you goin’, nothing’s ruined
Yes, I think that you're ok because

The wind has shattered out your window,
And you look too mellowed out to be
Into something, something like me.
And wind has movement with no shadow
‘Cause you look too mellowed out to be
Into something, something like me.
