Song of the Day
December 10, 2017
Your husband knows that you've been keeping me
The bond you wish to make can never be
The age between us is illogical
Don't ask for love, that is impossible

(You thought you could give me everything I might need)
You thought that you could give me everything
(You thought you could give me everything)
Try as you might to stop my wandering
The changing time makes my position clear
(You thought you could give me everything I might need)
Unlock this cage of gold, I'm leaving here

I'm going home, I'm going home
Gonna ride my bicycle there
You can offer the world to me
But I really don't care

(You thought you could give me everything I might need)
Think of your first love, how it used to be
(You thought you could give me everything)
Your motives still remain a mystery
If you destroy his life because of me
(You thought you could give me everything I might need)
You'll find you've won a hollow victory

Yes, I'm going home, I'm going home
Gonna ride my bicycle there
You can offer the world to me
But I really don't care

'Cause I'm going home, I'm going home
Gonna ride my bicycle there
You can offer the world to me
But I really don't care
